Rebuild your life after the hurt.

When someone hurts you, you need to be strong and rebuild your life. So release your emotions, surround yourself with positive people and learn to love who you are. It’s never easy but once you get through it you will be a tougher, wiser and more confident person than you once were. ~ Written by Dave Hedges

Mistakes - We all make them.

Each and every one of us will make mistakes during our lives, but that doesn't mean we should be judged on them and made to pay for them the rest of our lives. We're good people who've just made bad choices. It doesn't mean that we're bad people, it just means we're human. ~ by Dave Hedges

Don't let others drag you down.

Don't let the attitude of certain people change the loving and caring person you are. Don't let anyone make you feel worthless and try to drag you down. Use the strength and goodness inside you to rise above it all.

Stop over-thinking things.

Stop over-thinking about the issues in your life right now. Chances are, you will create more issues than you actually had.

I'm a woman - Strong and Proud.

I don't consider myself hot or gorgeous. I don't have an amazing figure. I'm far from being considered a model but, I'm me. I eat food, I have curves, I carry a little more weight than I should, I have scars, I have a history, some people love me, some people like me, some can't stand me. I have done good, I have done bad. I love my PJ's and go without make up. I'm random and crazy. I don't pretend to be someone I'm not. I am who I am, you can take me or leave me. I won't change for nobody. When I love you, I do it with all my heart. I make no apologies for the way I am. I am a woman ~ Strong and Proud.

They live in our hearts forever.

When someone you love has passed away, never look down to the floor with sadness. Instead, keep your head held high and look to the heavens, for that is where your heart has been sent to heal itself and those who have passed will live inside our hearts forever.

Beauty, like people comes in all shapes and sizes.

Some people are fat and some people are thin. Some people are tall and some people are short. Some people wear designer clothes and some wear what they can afford. So what? None of that stuff really matters! Beauty, like people comes in all shapes and sizes. It is defined by how a person is on the inside, not by what they wear, how they look on the outside. Every person has their own inner beauty. You just need to look beyond how they appear and see them for who they truly are.

One of the biggest regrets you can have.

One of the biggest regrets you'll have is if you walk away
from the people who stood by your side no matter what.
Never betray loyalty.

Some of the best moments I've had.

Some of the best moments I've ever had in my life were the ones where I didn't have to worry about what I was saying or what I was doing. I was just able to be myself. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Best friends.

Best friends are hard to find, difficult to leave
and impossible to forget.

The best days are yet to come.

Where you are right now in your life is not where you will always be. Remember, some of the best days of your life have yet to arrive. So keep going.

Although you can't be with me.

Although you can't be with me ~ Written by Dave Hedges

Although you can't be with me, I know we're not apart,
For I will always carry you, deep within my heart.
Although you can't be with me, my love will never die,
your love is always guiding me, from way up in the sky.
Although you can't be with me, I remember you with a smile,
cause we will be together again, not now, but in a while 

I am the way I am.

I am the way I am. You can Love me, Loath me, take me or leave me. I will always be a good friend to you and I ask for nothing in return except your promise of two things. Never use me or disrespect me. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Moving on doesn't mean you forget.

Moving on with your life doesn't mean that you've forgotten the things that have happened. It just means you have accepted what happened and despite how hard it's been, you are continuing to live your life.

I will always be there for my children.

A message to my Children. If you should ever need me, all you need to do is call me. It won't matter I'm sleeping, If we've had a falling out or if I'm going through my own issues, because there's nothing more important to me than my children. No matter what the circumstances, I will always be there for you to help, support and comfort you during your time of need. So please remember that I will always be there and I will always love you.

The happiest of people don't have everything...

The happiest of people don't have everything they ever wanted in this life, they just make the most of everything that this life has given them. The happiest of people have known hurt, they have felt pain, they have cried so many tears, they never gave up, despite the knocks and they are always trying to make things that little bit better. The happiest of people truly understand that the sad times never last and that the good times will always last longer and will always be the ones worth remembering.

Kind hearted people are not fools!

Kind hearted people are not fools!
They know what others have done to them but they choose to forgive. Kind hearted people are beautiful.

Moving on in life.

Sometimes you just have to move on. You may not want to and may not be able to forget what that person meant to you. But everything has changed and you need to accept that they are not the same person anymore, and neither are you.

To my beautiful child.

To my beautiful child. No matter what age you may be, I will hold you tight, support you, guide you, teach you, hug you, protect you and love you with all my heart and soul. Since the day you were born and until I draw my last breath, I will be there for you, no matter what. I love you.
~ by Dave Hedges

A kind hearts gets hurt the most.

When you have a kind and gentle heart you help too much, you trust too much, you give too much, you love too much, and sadly, it always seems like you get hurt the most.

You always knew what you had.

It's often said that you don't know what you've got until it's gone. The reality is, you always knew exactly what you had, you just didn't think that you would ever lose it.

~ by Dave Hedges

Mistakes do not define you.

A mistake is an error of judgement, not a reflection of the person you are. It's what you learn and how you react to the mistake that will show others who you really are. 
~ by Dave Hedges

People need to talk to each other.

A lot of the problems in this world would not exist if people talked to each other rather than talking about each other.

What does being a good person mean?

Being a good person doesn't depend on your religion, your status in life, your race or your skin colour. Being a good person will always depend on how you treat others! 
~ by Dave Hedges

Those special people in our lives.

We all have those special people in our lives. You know, those special friends we love as family. I just wanted to say thank you for being in my life and for showing me that family is not just about blood. It's about trust, honesty, love and respect. 
~ by Dave Hedges

People think they know the real me.

A lot of people think they know the real me, who I really am and what I’m about, but they don’t. Some people pass judgement on my life, the choices I've made and they have no idea about what I’ve been through and why I choose to be the way I am. So please, don't judge me when you don't know my story! 
~ by Dave Hedges

We all want to be loved, wanted and needed.

We all want to feel we're loved, wanted and needed by others, and that’s a good thing. But we should make sure we don't change the fabric of who we are so that others will love, want or need us. When people love, want and need us for just who we are, it's one of the best feelings in the world. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Stop wishing your life away...

If you really want to be happy then you need to stop wishing your life away and accept where you are in life right now. Enjoy what you have and forget what you don't have or what, for now, is out of reach. Don't worry about what others have, you can't control that. It's hard, but once you focus on what you are actually blessed with, you will truly start to be happy. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Life is an echo...

Life is an echo, I thought you should know,
You will always reap, those things you sow,
What you dish out, you know you will get,
If you give out bad, you will surely regret.
You can call it karma, you can call it fate,
But if you give out good, you will receive great.
So try not to judge, even those who judge you.
Give out love and let your love shine through.

~ Written by Dave Hedges

Difficult times will show you what you're made of.

There are times when difficulties in life make you feel that the weight of the world is on your shoulders. The truth is, the difficult times do not come to beat you down, but show you what you're made of and just how strong you really are. 
~ by Dave Hedges

We often try to bury the past.

We often try to bury the past but you must always maintain your connection to it and then gradually pull away from it. After all, it is those experiences, good and bad, have made you the person you are today. A stronger and wiser one.

A real woman knows who she is.

A real woman is whatever SHE wants to be and will not be defined by her looks, her size or how others think she should be. A real woman knows who she is, knows her own mind and is confident enough to rise above the stereotypes. 

Truth, honesty, respect and care.

The way you treat yourself will set the standard for how you should be treated by other people. Don't settle for anything less than truth, honesty, respect and care. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Before you make assumptions about someone..

Before you make assumptions about someone, make sure you learn the facts. Before you judge someone, understand why they are the way they are. Before you hurt someone else, think how you would feel if you were in their shoes. Before you speak your words, think how they are going to affect others. 
~ by Dave Hedges

The Beautiful Butterfly.

The Beautiful Butterfly. It's said that when you see a butterfly, it's someone you love in heaven reminding you of them and giving you a reason to remember all the beautiful memories you shared with them. So, share proudly and remember all the good times.

Allow your class to always shine through.

Always try to be kind and polite to everyone, even those that are unkind to you and perhaps don't deserve your kindness. Do it, not because they're nice, but because you are and you have learned to forgive others. Allow your class to always shine through. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Successful parents haven't had it easy.

Successful parents are not the ones who have had it easy. They are not the ones who had help around every corner. They are the ones who have fought, struggled and sacrificed so much of their lives. They are the ones who never gave in during the tough times because they knew it would be worth it. ~ by Dave Hedges

People who choose to be single.

Sometimes, people choose to be single because it's better than being in a relationship with someone who doesn't love, respect or care about them.
They choose to love, respect and care about themselves. 

~ by Dave Hedges

I was raised to show respect.

I was raised to show respect. I wasn't dragged up, I was taught to knock before I open a door. Say hello when I enter a room. Say please, Say thank you and show respect to my elders. I let another person have my seat if they need it, say polite things and help others when they need me to, not stand on the side lines and watch while someone struggles. I will hold the door for others walking behind me and say "excuse me" should I need to pass. I love people for who they are, not what I can get from them and most importantly, I was raised to treat people exactly how I would like to be treated by others. It's called respect.

I've Learned from my Life.

I'm stronger because I had to be. I'm smarter because of my mistakes. I'm happier because I have overcome the sadness I've known and I'm wiser because I have learned from my life.

Some people only hear what they want to hear.

Sometimes, it's just not worth your time trying to explain things to others. Some people will only hear what they want to hear.

The right people will come into your life.

Isn't it wonderful how sometimes the right people will come into your life, at just the right time, just when you really need them. Wonderful people who will love you, support you, help you and pray for you, regardless of the circumstances and with no expectation of anything in return. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Look for the good in people.

People lie, cheat, steal and abuse others, making us lose faith in people. However, people love, care, support and protect us. So, look for the good people and never let the bad ones destroy all the hard work those good people in your life have done.

When you face life's obstacles head on, you will develop an inner strength that will help you overcome adversity, develop your self-confidence and more importantly, it will give you the strength to move forward with your life.

The people who care about you.

Love the people in your life who will love you just as
much, when all you have to offer them is you.
Those people genuinely care about you.

There will come a time in your life.

There will come a time in your life when you will start to understand who really matters, who never did and who always will.

There are times when you have to be strong for YOU.

There are times when you have to be strong for YOU, understand that YOU are a good person and a good friend to those who need you. What’s meant to be will always be and what’s not won’t. Love is worth fighting for, but you can't always be the only one fighting, because sometimes you need people to fight for you. If they don’t, you just have to move on and know in your heart that the love you gave them was so much more than they were willing to give YOU.

by Dave Hedges

No matter what, keep going.

It doesn't matter how many mistakes you have made or how slow your progress is. We learn from our mistakes and all good things take time. So keep going because you're still way ahead of those who don't even bother trying.

One of the most important lessons.

One of the most important lessons to learn in this life is knowing what you should say, when you should say it and knowing when you need to stop.
