Maybe When One Door Shuts Another One Opens?

Updated on March 9, 2010

Maybe . . . We were supposed to meet the wrong people before meeting the right one so that, when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.

Maybe
. . . When the door of happiness closes, another opens; but, often times, we look so long at the closed door that we don't even see the new one which has been opened for us.

Maybe
. . . It is true that we don't know what we have until we lose it. But it is also true that we don't know what we have been missing until it arrives.

Maybe
. . . The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Maybe
. . . The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; after all, you can't go on successfully in life until you let go of your past mistakes, failures and heartaches.

Maybe
. . . You should dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you dream of, and want to do.

Maybe
. . . There are moments in life when you miss someone -- a parent, a spouse, a friend, a child -- sooo much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real, so that once they are around you appreciate them even more.

Maybe
. . . The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

Maybe
. . . You should always try to put yourself in others' shoes. If you feel that something could hurt you, it probably will hurt the other person, too.


Maybe
. . . You should do something nice for someone every single day, even if it is simply to leave them alone.

Maybe
. . . Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they will love you back. Don't expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart; but, if it doesn't, be content that it grew in yours.

Maybe
. . . Happiness waits for all those who cry, all those who hurt, all those who have searched, and all those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of all the people who have touched their lives.

Maybe
. . . You shouldn't go for looks; they can deceive; don't go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile.

Maybe
. . . You should hope for enough happiness to make you sweet enough, trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy.

Maybe
. . . You should try to live your life to the fullest because when you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling but when you die, you will be the one who is smiling and everyone around you crying.

Maybe . . .
You could send this message to those people who mean something to you, to those who have touched your life, to those who can and do make you smile when you really need it, to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down, and to all those whom you want to know that you appreciate them and their friendship.
