Everything happens for a reason.
Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there…to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be but...
One of my favorite quotes by a lady who personified depth and could put her thoughts into words like no other:“I shut my eyes and all the world drops dead; I lift my eyes and all is born again.”
So simple, yet so much punch in a few words.
Got this from a friend via E-mail.
I hope it gives you a smile.
It made ME laugh.
My thanks to Sue Littleton, for sharing this.

Life is like a silent ocean. People, stuff, situations are like ripples on it. Most people, i feel, crave the ripples. Ripples by nature are very transient and they end after some time. Looking for stability in ripples is an exercise in futility and will drive one crazy. If you...
and follow the shift from worry to calmness:
"I’m ready to let my life shift and change
I’m willing to love myself exactly as I am;
others have a right to think what they do for themselves;
I’m ready to move into a peaceful, joyful and fulfilling phase in my life...

Life is kind of like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay all night, some laugh with you, some laugh at you, and some show up really late. But in the end, after the fun, there are a few who stay to help you clean up the mess. And most of the time, they...
To the world you maybe
But to one
You might be the world
