"You are Mine and you cannot be lost to My love. You can never be despised by Me. You never slip out of My presence for a moment. You are never abandoned for a split second. There's never a moment that I am not continually aware of you. There is never a fraction of a second that I am not caring for you. There is never a thought in My heart that is unloving toward you. You are Mine forever, My child whom I love and for whom I would give My life endless times.- Love Jesus" - Unknown
Hope for everything but expect nothing. That was if it doesn't happen you aren't brutally disappointed and if it does then you're pleasantly surprised. I try to live my life in those guidelines
faith makes things possible, not easy.
One day at a time.

"People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.
Love them anyway.
If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.
If you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.
The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.
The biggest person with the biggest ideas can be
shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind.
Think big anyway.
What you spend years building may
be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.
People really need help but may attack if you help them.
Help people anyway.
Give the world the best you have
and you might get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you've got anyway."

Since I was a teenager I have said to myself "You will live through it" even when you feel like you could die from all the stress and pain, you will keep living and life will go on. I has been the one thing that has pulled me through so many times. Just telling myself that I will live through it is my strength I need in my head to carry on.
"You say your life is your own. But can you dare to ignore the chance that you are taking part in a gigantic drama under the orders of a divine Producer? Your cue may not come till the end of the play--it may be totally unimportant, a mere walking-on part, but upon it may hang the issues of the play if you do not give the cue to another player. The whole edifice may crumple. You as you, may not matter to anyone in the world, but you as a person in a particular place may matter unimaginably."

Agatha Christie - Man from the Sea
Make it a great day, or not, the choice is yours.

The past cannot survive in your presence. It can only survive in your absence.

There was never a time when your life was not Now... nor will there ever be.

The end of illusion - that's all that death is. It is painful only as long as you cling to illusion.

Nothing real can be threatened.

(All are from Eckhart Tolle's book, "The Power of Now")
It's not failing to fall down, it's only failure if you stay down.

Solice is not found in a knife.
Bad Times Make Good Times Better Times
Don't let the sadness of your past & the fear of your future ruin the happiness of your present.
"It's not brave if you're not scared"

This applies to so many kinds of fear and helps me push on when I want to give up.

Bonus points if you know the movie this line is from. I had an epiphany when I heard it and haven't forgotten since!

The words I live by are "Everything's a piece of everyone."

- Andrew McMahon (the song Caves)
my latest mantra?

i am only human. and i forgive myself.
never tell people your problems.
20% don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them.
-it is to be believed because it is absurd; it is certain because it is impossible.

-don't believe everything you think

-we've all been sorry, we've all been hurt, how we survive is what makes us who we are.
Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. (1 Cor 13:4-8)

write for yourself. your audience will come to you.
That I have a choice every day of what kind of day I'm going to have. I can let the shit get me down, or I can decide that I'm going to have a good day.
Miss all as though you were apart,
Love as if none can break your heart,
Speak up as if there were no cost,
Go forth as if you can't get lost,
Be true like none will hold a grudge,
Sing loud and dance like none will judge,
Laugh out as though you cannot cry,
Live life as though you cannot die...

"Choose your attitude"
-my mom
Time is only wasted when you aren't having fun.
You aren't having fun if you don't have a smile on your face.
In the game of life it's a good idea to have a few early losses, which relieves you of the pressure of trying to maintain an undefeated season.
- Bill Baughan

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin -- real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last is dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
- Alfre D. Souza

Expecting life to treat you well because you are a good person is like expecting an angry bull not to charge at you because you are a vegetarian. (I LOVE THIS ONE)

But your smile makes it all alright.
I'm so glad that you're my friend.

- chinese proverb

What people say, what people do, what people say they do are entirely different things.

- Margaret Meade

You can tell a few lies, tell everyone you're fine. But you know the truth, and that always going to haunt you. Lying to yourself never works. There are two of you in your heart, and they both know the truth. No matter how hard you try to convince yourself otherwise.
- Unknown
When you come to the edge of all the light you have known and are about to step out into the darkness, Faith is knowing one of two things will happen - there will be something to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.

Without this saying, I don't know how I would have kept going - it's just been so inspiratational to me.
If you live your life with regrets, you will regret living your life.

If you have only one good friend in life... you're rich.
The walls we build around us to keep out the sadness also keep out the joy.

Forgiveness isn't about the other person, its about you.

A ship is safe in the harbor, but that's not what it was built to do.

Break free from the bloody shackles of scoiety, and flow like water in a river.
Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.

A bend in the road is only the end of the road if you fail to make the turn.

Everything gets better in time. Some things just take longer.

Most of what you can or can't do is only in your head.

Find the hours clocks cannot define

You will make it. But someone will love you even if you don't.

Do one thing everyday that scares you.

Never let the odds keep you from doing what you know in your heart you're meant to do.

Nothing is worth more than this day.
I think Brett Dennen sang it very well "I will be the one who loves me the most"

No matter what misfortunes may take place in life I will never lose faith in the beauty that truly can never be taken away from us; the right and ability to be happy, to love and to be loved (all three stem from your own heart)
"Life isn't about finding yourself.
Life is about creating yourself."
It's a movie quote:

I'd rather have 10 minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special."
"sometimes its best to forget how you FEEL and remember what you DESERVE"....
Don't take life so seriously. Nobody makes it out alive anyway.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.
"I live too fast and I love too much and I'll die too young, but I chose this cup that i drank from. Knew what I was getting into"
Bayside - "Tortures of the Damned"

Love can be a many splendid thing
Can't deny the joy it brings
A dozen roses
Diamond rings
Dreams for sale
And fairy tales
It'll make you hear a symphony
And you just want the world to see
But like a drug that makes you blind
It'll fool you every time

The trouble with love is
It can tear you up inside
Make your heart believe a lie
It's stronger then your pride
The trouble with love is
It doesn't care how fast you fall
And you can't refuse the call
See you've got no say at all
"I am not afraid to keep on living, I am not afraid to walk this world alone."

I am going through some medical issues right now and this quote from My Chemical Romance's song Famous Last Words saved my life!

Saturday, December 20, 2008

Something that is worth having is worth the fight.

If you don't believe in yourself, how are you going to make anyone else believe in you?

Bad things can happen to anyone. What people are remembered for is how they overcome the bad and succeed.

Love is nasty. Love hurts. Love will break your heart. Love is worth it all.

Faking it can work, but To become truly good at something, you have to dare to be bad at it first.

"He saved us, not because of the righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us throught the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that, having justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. This is a trustworthy saying.
