Chloe and Her Dah-e

All I've Learned

I've learned that
if someone says
something unkind about me,
I must live so that
no one will believe it.

I've learned that
you can make some one's day
by simply sending them
a little note.

I've learned that
the greater a person's sense of guilt,
the greater his or her
need to cast blame on others.

I've learned that
no matter what happens,
or how bad it seems today,
life does go on,
and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that
motel mattresses are better
on the side away
from the phone.

I've learned that
you can tell a lot about a man
by the way he handles
these three things,
a rainy day, lost luggage,
and tangled
Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that regardless
of your relationship
with your parents,
you'll miss them when
they're gone from your life.

I've learned that
making a "living"
is not the same thing
as making a "life".

I've learned that life sometimes
gives you a second chance.

I've learned that
you shouldn't go through life
with a catcher's mitt
on both hands.
You need to be able
to throw something back.

I've learned that
if you pursue happiness,
it will elude you.
But if you focus on your family,
the needs of others,
your work,
meeting new people,
and doing the very best you can,
happiness will find you.

I've learned that
whenever I decide something
with kindness,
I usually make
the right decision.

I've learned that
even when I have pains,
I don't have to be one.

I've learned that
every day you should reach out
and touch someone.
People love human touches --
holding hands, a warm hug,
or just a friendly pat
on the back.

I've learned that
I still have a lot to learn.

I've learned that
you should pass this on
to someone you care about.
Sometimes they just need
a little something
to make them smile.

Imagine you are at a party...

Tenth floor of a hi-rise building...

and then you have to visit the bathroom...

You open the door...


the floor is just a painted floor!

(scroll down slowly)

Kinda takes your breath away...
Doesn't it?

Would this mess up your mind?
Would you be able to walk
into this bathroom?

thanks GLENDA

I Believe..,

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born.

A Death Certificate shows that we died.

Pictures show that we lived!

Have a seat . . . Relax . . . And read this slowly...

I Believe....
That just because two people argue, that
doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue, that
doesn't mean they do love each other.

I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry,
but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends if
we understand that friends change.

I Believe...
That no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.

I Believe......
That you can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.

I Believe...
That it's taking me a long time
to become the person I want to be.

I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones with
loving words. It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe......
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe...
That we are responsible for what
we do, no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences...

I Believe...
That money is a lousy way of keeping score.

I Believe....
That my best friend and I can do anything, or nothing, and have the best time.

I Believe...
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you
When you're down will be the ones to help you get back up..

I Believe...
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had,
and what you've learned from them...and less to do with how many
birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe.....
That it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe...
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
but we are responsible for who we become.

I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find
out a secret. It could change your life forever.

I Believe....
Two people can look at the exact same
thing and see something totally different.

I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of
hours by people who don't even know you.

I Believe...
That even when you think you have no more to give, if
a friend cries out to you...you will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
That credentials on the wall do not make you a decent human being.

I Believe...
That the people you care about most in life are taken from you too soon..

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything.

Thank you God for all the wonderful people who help us throughout the journey of life...
