I was not made to be able to handle everything that life throws at me because I do get upset when I am in terrible situations. I was not made to be happy and smiling all the time because I do cry when I am emotionally worked up. I do get mad at people who stab me in the back. I also hurt when my very own friends do things that break my heart. I am not supposed to be standing tall everyday because I do stumble and fall. But YES, when I am done with all this I do learn lessons from the punches that are thrown at me. They challenge me and help me to become emotionally strong and I am ready to face it all with a brave heart. So, I can proudly say that I am perfect the way I am and I refuse to change anything about me.
Be with the one that makes you happy. The one that makes you smile. The one that makes you laugh, and each day worth while. Live life for the moment, try hard to make it last because life is so short, it goes by so fast. So when you find love, don't let it slip away. Hold it forever and cherish it each day. As long as you are happy that is what you should do. Love that someone and let them know before your life is through.
It's an action requiring your involvement and your active participation. You cannot sit back and expect the world will serve it to you. You cannot expect that your relationship will continue to provide love while you're not putting in any effort. Love has to be earned and must be continually fought for.
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She's not perfect - you aren't either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don't hurt her, don't change her, don't analyse and don't expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there.”

Our lives are blessed with one new day after another. That's why we have sunsets and sunrises. Each new day brings a fresh chance to start doing things differently. If we can't seize that opportunity, we can grab the next. Or, if we prefer, we can use nature's generosity as an excuse for laziness. We can keep putting everything off till tomorrow...until there really are no tomorrows left for us.

Not everyone believes in soulmates. I do. I believe that there is one person, in this world, who is made specifically to complete another person. And when you find that one person, he will complement you perfectly. He will be with you when you're the happiest and the saddest. He will protect you, spoil you and pamper you. He will know what you're about to say while you're thinking it. And you will chip away parts of yourself to fit with each other perfectly. That's when you know what a soulmate is. That's when you suddenly realise what you've been waiting for your entire life. There's little more you can ask for. A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are, we can be loved for who we are and not for who we're pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we're safe in our own paradise....Our soulmate is the one who makes life come to life.

In our modern materialistic world, we often equate 'the best' with 'the most expensive'. But, though the best things in life are not always free, they are rarely as costly as some of the more outrageously priced alternatives. Once we stop measuring value in financial terms and look at human qualities like integrity, loyalty, sympathy and intelligence, we soon realise that these are factors which nobody can ever put a price on, which all of us can afford to prioritise.

Two wrongs never make a right. We all instinctively understand this. We don't even need to have it taught to us. It is just so obvious. Yet how often do we hear people justifying bad behaviour with phrases like, 'Well, they deserve this after what they did.' Or, 'What I'm doing now, isn't half as bad as what so-and-so has done.' These so-called excuses don't actually excuse anything. Shouldn't everything in your life be happening in accordance with the highest possible standard? You have the power to set this and stick to it.
When you say that you are going to do something, you do it. If circumstances conspire to prevent you, you will move heaven and earth. There may be times when it is simply impossible but you don't ever give up without a fight. All of which is deeply laudable. But one slight side-effect of being born blessed with such determination is that, once in a while, you will find yourself striving to accomplish something that isn't actually so important. Don't waste precious determination on an irrelevant objective.
