Courage comes in many forms.

It takes great strength and inner courage to stand up and fight 

for something you love, however there are times when it will take 
even more courage to walk away and leave your past behind.

The 5 simple rules to being happy.

This story is so inspiring ~ Please pass it on 

The 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o'clock, with her hair fashionably coifed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home today. Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.

Putting On A Brave Face

Sometimes in life you just have to smile, put on a brave face

and pretend that everything's OK

Raise your head up high, hold back the tears
and bravely walk away...

During the storms

Remember, anyone can love you when the sun is shining, 

but it's during the storms that you find out who cares for you.

Moving Forward - Moving On

Even when a relationship breaks down, it can be so hard to let go of the powerful emotions. Those strong feelings of love, belonging and intimacy can outweigh the hurt, but we need to find the strength and courage to move on with our lives.

Sometimes you just have to erase the messages, delete the numbers and move on. You don't have to forget who that person was to you, you just need to accept that they are not that person anymore.

What does the year hold in store for you?

The truth is always better.

It is better to be slapped with the truth
than to be kissed with a lie.

Our children never outgrow our hearts.

Our children may outgrow our lap
but they will never outgrow our hearts.

The best revenge.

The best revenge you can have is simply 

moving on and getting over your troubles.
Don't give anyone the satisfaction of seeing you suffer.

Always remember to keep moving forwards.

The next time you feel stressed, just take a step back,

take a deep breath and smile.
Remember who you are and what you are about.
You are never given anything that you can't handle.
Be strong, be flexible, trust in yourself and hold your head up high.
Always remember to keep moving forwards.

Everything happens for a reason.

Do you believe nothing in life happens by accident and

everything happens for a reason?
Everyone we encounter in our lives will have a role to play.
Some will be small, others will guide us and some will be life changing. Some will make us laugh, others will make us cry and some will make us stronger and wiser people.
Some will teach us lessons, transforming us into a better person.
some people will love us for exactly who we are and make us
happy and content in life.
I'm sharing this because I believe and I thank all of the people who have been a part of my life and making me who I am today.

You were born to be real, not perfect.

You were born to be real, not perfect.
You are here to be who you want to be, not what others want to see.
Live YOUR Life

Someone who really loves you.

Someone who really loves you sees what a mess you can be,

how moody you can get, how hard you are to handle,
but still wants you in their life because they love you
just the way you are.

You simply can't be nice all the time.

You simply can't be nice all the time. 
Sometimes you need to
stop hiding from 
the difficult decision, make your stand, 
show how strong you are and refuse to let others hurt you.

One of the greatest challenges in your life.

One of the greatest challenges in YOUR life is finding 

someone who knows all about your flaws, the mistakes you've 
made and your weaknesses and can still see the best in YOU

Personality Is what captures the heart.

Beauty only gets attention.
Personality is what captures the heart.

Not only will I survive, I will win.

I have already been through hell, so give it your best shot.

Not only will I survive, I will win.

Remembering loved ones this Memorial Day

remembering the men and women who died while serving
in the country's armed forces. 

The holiday, which is celebrated every year on the last Monday of May,
was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the

A wonderful man.

If you have a wonderful man who is your whole world, 

who isn't perfect, but perfect for you, 
who works hard and would do anything for you. 
Who treats you with respect and dignity. 
Who makes you laugh, who is your best friend and 
sometimes your only friend, who you want to grow old with 
(if you don't kill him first) who you are thankful for everyday, 
then feel free to share this as your status.

One of the hardest decisions.

One of the hardest decisions you'll ever face
is whether to walk away or try harder.

We have all been in a relationship, a job, involved in something
where we reach our limit and feel as if we are going nowhere,
so we need to choose what next and sometimes, that choice
can be the hardest decision of our lives.

A friend for life or A lesson for life?

When you completely trust another person,

you will end up with one of two outcomes.

A friend for life or A lesson for life.

Both, regardless of the outcome, are valuable.

You just need to walk away from all the drama.

There will come a time in your life when you just need to walk

away from all the drama and the people who bring it into your life.

You will surround yourself with people who make you smile,
care about you and make you feel like you belong.

Love the people who care for you and say a prayer for those
in life who used you.

Life is far too short to be unhappy so make the changes
you need to make your life a happy one.

Making a genuine effort.

When someone truly wants to be a part of your life
they will make a genuine effort to become a part of it.

I just want to be happy!

I simply want to be able to live my life without all the 
stress or worries.
I don't need to be rich or famous, I just want to be happy!

My husband has an amazing wife!

My husband has an amazing wife!

Just incase a few husbands have forgotten... :)

The road ahead.

The road ahead is a long one but you must keep going...

Better things are just around the corner!
Just take it one day at a time!

Sisters that mean the world to us.

Like and share this rose if you have a
Sister or Sisters that mean the world to you.

If they are your best friend and you
would do anything for them.

This includes friends who you class as your sister.

Some people are like clouds.

Some people are just like clouds.

When they disappear, It's a brighter day!

People should stop expecting normal from me.

Seriously, people should stop expecting normal from me.
We all know it's never gonna happen!
A little light hearted fun to make you and your friends smile.

Anyone can love a rose.

Learn to love with all your heart and
accept the faults of others in your life.

Remember, anyone can love a rose but
it takes a great heart to include the thorns.

We don't forgive people because we are weak.

We don't forgive people because we are weak.

We forgive people because we are strong enough
to know that we all make mistakes and that it's
not our place to judge them.

When God opened the window of heaven, he asked me

what I would wish for today.
I replied - Please bless the person reading this.

Life isn't about pleasing everybody!

Be happy, be who you want to be.
If others don't like it, let them be.

As the saying goes, happiness is a choice.
Life isn't about pleasing everybody!

Trust is a fragile thing.

Trust is a fragile thing. 
Easy to break, Easy to lose 
and one of the hardest things to get back.

The Smallest Things

Sometimes It's the smallest things in our lives
that can take up the most room in our hearts.

Share A Hug Today

A HUG can help someone who is feeling depressed to

reduce their anxiety and give them renewed strength.

So now I've give a HUG to you,
Inside I know I feel better too.
Hugs are better when you share,
so pass one on and show you care.

The Only Regrets I Have.

I will never regret the things I did wrong.

I will only regret the good things I did for the wrong people.

Sometimes, people in our lives take advantage of our kind nature 

and will make us feel regret for doing something that we 
thought was right. It's sad but it will cause the feeling of regret.

Life's too short for regrets.

Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.

So love the ones who treat you right 
and forget about the ones who don't.

I Love My Children

I am your parent, you are my child,
I am your quiet place, you are my wild,
I am your calm face, you are my giggle,
I am your compass, you are my wiggle,
I am your dinner, you are my chocolate cake,
I am your bedtime, you are my wide awake,
I am your lullaby, you are my peekaboo,
I am your goodnight kiss, you are my I Love You.

Created from the original poem by the amazing ~ Maryann K Cusimano.

I Am A Woman

I am a Woman. I am smart, I have opinions, I have feelings,
I care, I make a difference, I matter and I am proud of who I am.

SHARE this proudly on your wall if YOU are too.

Hug With Prayers

When my arms can't reach those who are close to my heart,
I will always hug them with my prayers.

Don't Judge Me

Don't judge me when you
don't know my story.

The best place in the world.

The best place in the world is in the arms of
someone you love.
Who will not only hold you at your best, but
will pick you up and hold you tight in
your weakest moments.

Never sacrifice who you are.

Be who you want to be, not what others want to see.

It's your life.

Never sacrifice who you are just
because someone has a problem with it.

Family - Together we have it all.

Family - We argue, we fall out, we make up, we love, 

we don't speak, we chat for hours, we are family.

We may not have it all together, but

together we have it all.
