DIGNITY. It means a belief in oneself, that one is worthy of the best. It means that what I have to say is important, and I will say it when it’s important for me to say it. Dignity really means that I deserve the best treatment I can receive. And that I have the responsibility to give the best treatment I can to other people.
— Maya Angelou
Throughout your life you will come to understand that there is a role for everyone you meet. Some will test you, some will love you, some will use you and some will teach you. The ones you remember the most are the ones who brought out the very best in you because those people are amazing and it's being with those people that will remind you every day why it's worth it.
In relationships, Trust is the foundation on which everything is built. Honesty & openness always leads to a successful relationship. However every friendship, every relationship, is bound to fall apart when you start keeping things to yourself. Secrets don't destroy things but the suspicion of secrets will destroy everything, especially when your suspicions are confirmed ~ written by Dave Hedges
Today could be the day you become the person that you're meant to be. However, that can’t happen if you're still carrying baggage. This day, you have a chance to start over and all you have to do is let go of all the bad things that you've done, all the bad things that have happened to you, and allow yourself to move forward.
Now that you are gone, I miss you so much,
Remembering days gone by, thinking of your touch.
Inside my heart is breaking, there's nothing I wouldn't give,
hold your hand one more time & remember how we used to live.
I never will forget you, the memories are too much,
please know that you are in my heart & that I miss your touch.
Sometimes when someone says goodbye, it can be a blessing in disguise. When people walk away, there is no need to try and hold on to them or chase after them to try and keep them as part of your life. If they choose to leave, take it as a sign that these people are not part of the plan for your life. It’s a sign that you need someone different in your life, someone who understands you and will stand by you and accept you - no matter what.
Embrace those goodbyes, because every goodbye always leads
to an even better hello from someone really special.
There are some people in our lives who, regardless of all the good, kind and meaningful things we do, will always focus on the faults we have and seek to use them to beat us down, rather than build us up when we could really use a lift. Sadly, it's these people we need to remove from our lives to ensure that it's our positivity & kindness, not their negativity, that shines through.
Someday we will forget about the hurt, the reasons we cried and who caused us pain. We will finally understand that the secret to being free is not revenge, but letting things unfold in their own way and own time.
After all, what matters is not the first, nut the last chapter of our lives which will show how well we ran the race. So smile, laugh, forgive, believe and love all over again.
