24 Things To Remember

2 Feb

One of the blog post suggestions from The Daily Post was whether you were an optimist or a pessimist.  Whenever I get asked this question, I usually say that I’m a realist.  When they give me a blank look, I qualify it by saying that I hope for the best of outcomes but am prepared if it doesn’t turn out quite the way I’d envisioned it.

I am quite the glass-half-full type of person.  I think it is my faith that allows me to believe that things will ALWAYS get better.  I know that God will always take care of me.  No matter how difficult things are, I know that God will get me through it.

I got this email from one of my former work colleagues today and I thought I’d share it with whoever wanders into my blog space.  In the words of Martha Stewart, “It’s a good thing!”

Your presence is a present to the world.
You are unique and one of a kind.
Your life can be what you want it to be.
Take the days just one at a time.

Count your blessings, not your troubles.
You will make it through whatever comes along.
Within you are so many answers.
Understand, have courage, be strong.

Do not put limits on yourself.
So many dreams are waiting to be realized.
Decisions are too important to leave to chance.
Reach for your peak, your goal and you prize.

Nothing wastes more energy than worrying.
The longer one carries a problem the heavier it gets.
Do not take things too seriously.
Live a life of serenity, not a life of regrets.

Remember that a little love goes a long way.
Remember that a lot goes forever.
Remember that friendship is a wise investment.
Life’s treasure are people together.

Realize that it is never too late.
Do ordinary things in an extraordinary way.
Have hearth and hope and happiness.
Take the time to wish upon a start.

    Thanks for posting such a nice poem! It helps when others care and when we get nice emails and not the forward kind.

      It most certainly does. When I got it this morning I knew it had to go up on the blog because if people wandered in, then they would read this.
