    The tree that let it go, the wind that blew it away, or the leaf that got tired of hanging on?

    I Am Proud Of My Heart

    I'm proud of my heart.  It's been played, stabbed, cheated, burned and broken,  but somehow it still works. There is nothing more beautiful than a person whose heart has been torn apart, but still believes in the beauty of love.

    Quote About Love 8

    Let go of the things that can no longer be fixed. If you force yourself to try and put them back, things will only get worse. Holding on is being brave, but sometimes moving on makes you even tougher.

    It's strange how the human mind swings back

    and forth, from one extreme to another. Does truth lie at some point of the pendulum's swing, at a point where it never rests, not in the dull perpendicular mean where it dangles in the end like a windless flag, but at an angle, nearer one extreme than another? If only a miracle...

    You could use your energy to make daily

    inventories of everything that's wrong - the money you don't have, the esteem you didn't earn, the people you disappointed. Or you could commit to being your best, and then just sit back and smile. Life will always be a balancing act. Learn to teeter in serenity.
