When desire is so intense
that you can taste it and see it.
You must act upon it
because you have only one life to live.
No one can live your dreams but you.
If you do not follow your heart,
you will live a life dictated by others,
a life unfulfilled
and dreams not pursued.
It is time to make a change.
Dreams are unfulfilled
and goals are not met.
Life has become unbearable,
undesirable and unwanted.
It is time to do what is necessary
to uplift and upgrade,
to make life better,
to make the heart happier,
to enjoy the air we breathe
and to enjoy the life we lead.
It is time to enjoy,
to be thankful,
to be grateful
and to be satisfied.
Giving up is the coward’s way out
to a bad situation,
to a dream unfulfilled
and to goals unmet.
Giving up is surrendering desires
and selling out ambition.
Giving up is releasing power of perseverance,
dedication and determination.
Giving up is a departure of will,
exit of vision,
denial of positivity
and acceptance of negativity.
To save the heart
and to rescue the soul,
do not give up.
In life, you must learn to be you.
At times, it may seem hard
but doing it is a very good start
to lifelong happiness.
You must not try to please people
especially if you are not pleasing you.
You should not live by others standards.
Live by your own.
If you believe in something,
when others do not.
Do not be disappointed
and do not give up.
If you happen to be wrong,
at least you know
you were being you.
You should not have to follow a pattern.
You should not have to follow in anyone’s footsteps.
You should be able to make your own.
We were all born as individuals.
We all should live as individuals.
Accomplish that by being you.
Do not worry.
Do not be scared.
Just be you.
The path to success
is sometimes a turbulent road.
Obstacles come along
and throw you a curve.
You veer to the right
to avoid impact
you are struck anyway.
You come out
without a scratch
Before you know it,
your goal is reached
you have won.
Sometimes I feel like my world is tumbling down.
Then I realize I could not even be around.
I wonder how I could have been such a fool.
I was a fool, a fool in love.
I loved this man with all of my heart.
However, circumstances tore us apart.
Sometimes I wonder how I can go on.
I know life must go on
Sometimes we make wrong decisions that shift
our life in an unknown direction
At the time, we think we are doing the right thing.
In life, we learn the heart can be misleading.
With each mistake comes a time of reflection.
Why oh why did I choose such direction?
I will never view love as naively as I did before.
With each chance meeting, I will proceed with caution.
I will live life being thankful for every breath I take
and every move I make.
I thank God for allowing me to survive.
Without him, nothing is possible.
I give advice whenever I can
and heed advice whenever I can.
If I can save only one life,
I feel as if I have scored a million.
Life is so precious,
and life should be lived to the fullest
It is silly to say I wish I could live life over.
What is wrong with living life now?
Tomorrow is not promised.
Love is not promised.
However, love does exist.
Love does not hurt
and love doesn’t kill.
Love cannot be bought.
Love must be learned and earned.
Love is necessary for a blissful life.
I love myself for who I am
and not for who I am to anyone else.
To get through any bad thing,
there must be a good thing
I am the good thing, and I love me.
Whether fat or thin,
I love me.
Whether rich or poor,
I love me.
Love yourself first,
and others will love and respect you
Be strong for you
if you can’t be strong for anyone else.
With every mistake,
reflect and go on.
Do not spend a lot of time wondering…what if.
Go after your dreams.
Live life, love life, and most of all be happy.
I am happy with me
and there is not a person I would rather be.
It took a lot to get to this point.
I do not regret a thing.
I am a better person to have survived
and a stronger person to have gone through it.
Loving yourself is vital to existence.
When you love yourself,
you generate positive energies.
You have the desire to dream
and have self-esteem so great
that no one or nothing can tear it apart.
You only want the best for yourself
and will settle for nothing less.
You are important to your survival
and rely on no one to make you happy
because your happiness exists within.
