Things to tell yourself each day.

Things to tell yourself each and every day.

I will be successful in whatever I do.
There is nothing beyond me. I choose to be positive.
I control my destiny. I'm a good person. I love who I am.

Their memory will always live on.

It only takes a few seconds to say goodbye to someone you love, but it will take the rest of your life to forget them. Their memory will live on forever in your heart. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Remember you're the better person.

Some people can be really mean and say some really nasty things to you. Just remember those things they say about you will tell everybody just what they are about, not what you are. It's hard, but try not to take it personally. You are the better person.

Making mistakes is a part of life.

Making mistakes is an inherent part of life that we cannot escape from, however we must be big enough to admit those mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, strong enough to correct them and wise enough not to repeat them. ~

Not everyone will appreciate you.

Not everyone will appreciate what you do for them. 

You have to figure out who’s worth your kindness and 
who’s just taking advantage.

Not everything will go to plan.

Not everything in life will go to plan.
So go with the flow and see what happens.

Some people need space.

Sometimes you have to give the people you love a little space and time to get their head together, before you let them back into your life. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Don't give them the satisfaction.

The best thing you can do is just move on and get over it.
NEVER give anyone the satisfaction of seeing you suffer.
~ by Dave Hedges

The down side to being strong.

The only down side to being a strong person is that nobody will ever think to ask you if you're OK. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Dignity is a belief in oneself.

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

One of my biggest mistakes.

One of the biggest mistakes I've made in my life is allowing certain people to stay in my life far longer than they ever deserved to be in it. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Other people's actions.

The actions of people in your life will always tell you everything you'll need to know about them. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Words mean nothing if their actions don't back them up.

True wealth in life.

What does it mean to be rich?
To be rich is not what you own or what you have in your
bank account. It's what you have in your heart.

Mistakes are part of life.

Making mistakes is an inherent part of life that we cannot escape from, however we must be big enough to admit those mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, strong enough to correct them and wise enough not to repeat them. ~

No need to impress others.

Don't live your life trying to impress certain people that simply don't care about you. That's a waste of your time, a waste of your effort and a waste of your life!

The Key to my Heart.

My Children hold the key to my heart.

A poem to my friends.

I'm thinking about you and I really care, so on my wall this post I share. If you ever need me and feel all alone, I will come to you and never moan. I'm here for you until the end, I'm not your family, I'm your very best friend. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Don't stress about stuff you can't change.

Things happen in life that we can't change or understand. 
So just live your life, learn to let go and don't stress about 
the stuff you can't change. ~ by Dave Hedges

Stay positive, stay strong and you'll go far.

When other people treat you bad,
just keep on going and don't get sad.
Don't let them change the person you are,
stay positive, stay strong and you'll go far. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Some people only want the gossip.

Open the book of your life to those people who know love and care about you. Because some people just want to know the gossip in the pages and not the whole story your life has to tell. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Accept what's happening in your life right now.

Accept what's happening in your life right now, put what
has happened behind you, let it all go and have faith that
good things are coming your way. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Things sometimes appear gloomy ahead.

Things sometimes appear gloomy ahead and you may feel like giving up, but if you don't keep going you will never know what wonderful things there are just around the corner. ~ by Dave Hedges

There is a role for everyone you meet.

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.

The strength to walk away

Sometimes, it takes all the strength and courage you have to make your stand. Sometimes, it will take even more strength and courage to walk away.
 ~ by Dave Hedges

Have faith, be strong and never stop believing.

It's always when you least expect it that something good will come along, and it's always something better than you could have ever imagined. So, have faith, be strong and most of all, never stop believing. 
~ by Dave Hedges

The walk of life.

As we take the "walk of life" we will discover along the way just who mattered to us, who no longer does and who always will. One thing is for sure, everyone along the way will make a lasting impression on us! 
~ by Dave Hedges

Know your worth.

When you start to finally understand your worth, you'll stop giving discounts to people who take advantage! 
~ by Dave Hedges

Trust in a relationship.

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

It's amazing how people can change.

I find it amazing how some people can change and treat you differently. One day, you mean something in their lives and the next, it's as if you don't exist.

Today could be the day.

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.

I miss your touch.

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, goodbye can be a blessing.

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. 

I'm where I should be.

I may not be at the place I intended to go but I'm happy and I know I've ended up exactly where I was supposed to be.

Don't be afraid to speak up.

You should always speak from your heart and say exactly what you mean. Others may not like it, but they will respect you for it.

Do what makes you happy.

If you're caught between what you want to do and what other people think you should do, always do the thing that makes you happy. Unless you would like everybody else to be happy except you! 

No relationship will ever make you complete.

No relationship will ever make you a complete person. You will complete yourself because of who you are and how you conduct yourself as a person, not because of the person you are with.

The winds of change.

Sometimes the winds of change will come at you from all directions and can be so strong, they can feel like they will blow you over.

You need to be strong, hold your head up high and use those
winds of change to soar high and rise above it all with a smile.

Some people will focus on your faults.

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. 

Remembering our parents in heaven.

I share this rose in loving memory of my parents in heaven.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of you.
Our parents live on within us, always.

The people who really 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.

Choose your words carefully in front of children.

What should not be heard by little ears should not be spoken by big mouths. Choose your words carefully in front of children.

The lowest points in our lives.

Sometimes when we reach the lowest points in our lives, we will find the very things we need to get us back on our feet. So, during those times, keep your eyes and your heart wide open.

I hope that good things will come your way.

This message is to all my wonderful family and amazing friends. 

I hope that good things will come your way and that smiles 
and happiness will be with you throughout your day.

The strongest people learn from the pain.

Some people think that to be strong is to never feel pain. However, the strongest people are the ones who have felt pain, understood it, accepted it and learned from it.

Their true colours.

One good thing about going through the worst parts of your life,
is that you finally get to see the true colours of everyone who
said they cared for you. 
~ by Dave Hedges

Each day I'm Thankful.

Each day I'm thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that became a reality and likes that turned into love.

Sometimes, we need someone to be there.

Sometimes, we just need someone to be there for us.
Not to fix anything or do anything in particular, simply so that we can feel we are supported and cared for during the hard times.

Respect those with disabilities.

Don't make fun of people with disabilities, regardless of what the disability is. It may be a physical one, it may be a mental one, but these disabilities do not stop them being wonderful human beings.

Everyone has feelings and everyone can feel hurt.

You can control your own destiny.

LIFE can change at any moment, and so can you.
You can control your own destiny. Never forget that!

by Dave Hedges

Someday we will forget about the hurt.

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.
