What I've learned so far!
I have been in a small funk these past few days, maybe it's the weather(rainy), maybe it's lack of sleep... or maybe it's just the ebb and flow of my life these days.
I sometimes feel that I should be doing more, that I should live bigger, larger. I feel guilty for not doing something new and fun every minute, "Carpe diem" my friends say.
While surfing the net today, I found these quotes by Maya Angelou. Then a funny thing happened, I realized that I was having fun, I am living my life and I am communicating and sharing ideas.
It may not be everybody's idea of fun, but I'm Ok with that.
I'm happy now,I'll worry about tomorrow,...tomorrow!
"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow."
"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."
"I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life."
"I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life."'
"I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance." '
"I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back."
"I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision."
"I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one."
"I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back."
"I've learned that I still have a lot to learn."
"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
