“Eleven Hints for Life”

I really like this.


Portrait of happy couple


1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return. But what is more painful is to love someone and never find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was never meant to be and you just have to let go.

3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.

4. It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.

5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

6. Don’t go for looks, they can deceive. Don’t go for wealth, even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day
seem bright.

7. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.

8. Always put yourself in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.

9. A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck a life. A timely word may level stress. But a loving word may heal and bless.

10. The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die,
you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Events That Impact Our Lives

Military025       I watched a movie a couple of days ago, “The Vow.” It’s a great movie. A young couple sustains injuries in a horrible automobile accident.  The wife has memory loss due to a head injury.  She does not remember her husband. The couple faces a great challenge but in the end…  Well, I’m not going to give the ending away, watch the movie.  You’ll enjoy it.

       In the movie, the husband has a theory about what he terms “moments of impact,” that turns our lives upside down but actually defines who we are.  I got to thinking about that.  I thought about various events/moments in my life of great impact.  Some of these experiences were wonderful, joyous, uplifting.  Other experiences were painful, troublesome, challenging and heartbreaking.  Events that have occurred in my life that took me down a different path are: Falling in love – moment of impact; marriage – moment of impact; giving birth to my first child – moment of impact; first job – moment of impact; divorce – moment of impact; connecting with Spirit – moment of impact; loss of job, loss of possessions – moment of impact…  I can go on, and on.

       I believe moments of impact are what we create in our lives for soul growth.  I believe some of it is karmic related.  Nothing is coincidental.  Moments of impact defines who we are  and I am grateful for them.

       One thing is for sure, moments of impact changes the course of our lives.

Love, light and blessings
