a thought to ponder on


Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,

and remember what peace there with be in silence.
As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
They too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
They are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you have distinguished vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and Lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
It is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
EXERCISE CAUTION in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what there is Virtue;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many Fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it Should.
Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
It is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy

silver linings

Some define silver linings as seeing the beautiful and good things despite of not so good events in our every day lives..

Let go and let God..
Sometimes He breaks our heart, and makes us cry so that tears can wash our eyes to see things better. Sometimes you have to fall so you'll know who will pick you up.
Sometimes we feel sad, so that we will learn to treasure happy times.
We feel broken so we could find things that will complete us.
Sometimes we have to empty our hands so that we can hold and receive better things.
Sometimes the best thing we could do for the one we love is to just exist and be there when they need us.
Sometimes we have to be quiet so that we could hear what is truly meant.
Sometimes we do not get what we want, because there is something better for us that we might need...
Sometimes you have to stand up and believe that at some point, fate has to accept its defeat..

lesson: at the end of the day, we have to move on..the best things are yet to come..
