If you change…

Quote

“If you change, change ONLY for yourself, NOT to gain approval from others. Even if the change is for the ‘better,’ it means nothing unless you do it for yourself and only yourself. Don’t sacrifice your values and who you truly are for anyone because you are awesome the way you are and there are people who love you for your TRUE self; it’s not fair to those people or yourself to change that just to feel ‘accepted.’ Seeking acceptance is never the answer.”

“I’ve learned that…

Quote

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a ‘living’ is not the same thing as making a ‘life.’ I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
