Just a good thought

The following was sent to me by a friend and thought I would pass it along.

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You will break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You will fight with your best friend. You will blame a new love for things an old one did. You'll cry because time is passing too fast, and you will lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you have never been hurt, because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you will never get back. So send this to all of your friends and a miracle will happen tonight.

Now the last line of that is in doubt but the rest is dead on. As time rushes on we tend to forget that we have the ability to make of our lives what we wish them to be and our attitude can determine how we view those events. A positive outlook makes for a much better memory. Those around us will pick up on how we feel and feel better because of it. All to often I have caught myself feeling sorry for myself and had to be reminded that there are others who have it much worse or at least as bad. A smile and a friendly word can make someones day and leaves a warm spot in me when I have made someone smile or laugh.
As this year of trial comes to a close I will vow to live this life with a more tolerant attitude and try to make someone smile each day. Offer kind words to those I come in contact with and judge only my own actions each day.
To all who watch this little journal of mine, may this be the start of a wonderful year ahead and may your Christmas season be filled with love and warm memories. Peace to all
