Living Life

Updated on May 22, 2017

Built For Life

Let me Live today, for I do not live forever

We are built for Life. Live Loud, Live Full,
Do good, Make A Difference, Do Not Lie, even if it cost you,
Respect yourself, and others will respect you,
Understand yourself, and others will understand you.
Be enthusiastic, it is a sign of spiritual health.
Do something that will make your heart dance,
And if you can't, then do something for somebody else.

Do not worry about your limits, You Have None.
Do not think Life Is Impossible, Nothing Is.
Do not think the dark night never ends, It always does.
We love too little, and hate too much.
We talk too much, and listen too little.
We have more conveniences, but less time.
We have more knowledge, but poorer judgement.
We have added years to life, but not life to years.

2000 years of civilization,
2 world wars,
Countless conflicts over territories,
religious beliefs,
and the colour of our skin.
Broken marriages, broken homes,
Millions of neglected
and abused children.

But know this, Life ask of every one a contribution,
What you chose to do or say today, determines your Life.
We pass this way but once, Let us make a difference now.
Many of the things we need can wait,
The child, the weak, the sick and the lonely cannot.
To them we cannot say tomorrow, their time is now.
Now is when we stand and say, Yes, count me in.
Let me do it now, I live my Life but once.

A Gift Worth Giving

Share for good Karma

Everyone deserves to be happy,
everyone deserves their day in the sun.
Happiness comes from within,
no amount of money, fame or anything else
can truly make you happy.

Happiness comes from
the little things in life,
the everyday, the mundane -
it is the absence of these that make you wish they were.
The little things in life are simple pleasures,

Stop complicating your life,
do more with less,
live more and laugh loud,
forgive and forget,
love with all your heart.

At the end of the day,
all the things that annoy the hell out of you
are as nothing.
It will only cast a dark shadow on you
if you give them the power to do so.

Laugh it off,
so what if it makes you look stupid,
you are making people laugh.
And that, my friends,
is a gift worth giving.

Be You For You

Be you. For you. And nobody else.
Being someone you're not for the purpose of making others happy is the greatest injustice you could do to yourself.

Here Is A Fact Of Life
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says W T F .....

Now Why Do You Think This Is?
LOVE has 4 letters, but so does HATE;
FRIENDS have 7 letters, but so does ENEMIES;
TRUTH has 5 letters, but so does LYING.

No One Is Perfect
... that's why pencils have erasers.

LIVE like it's your last day on earth,
LOVE like you've never been hurt,
DANCE like nobody's watching,
WORK like you don't need the money.

Unkind But True

Some people drink from the fountain of knowledge, others just gargle. ~ Robert Anthony

LIVE like it's your last day on earth, LOVE like you've never been hurt, DANCE like nobody's watching, WORK like you don't need the money.

World Peace

Inspirational

For The Others

Do A Little More For The Others Around You

1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.

2. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.

3. When you say, 'I love you,' mean it.

4. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye.

5. Never laugh at person's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.

6. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.

7. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.

8. Don't judge people by their relatives.

9. Talk slowly but think quickly.

10. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?'

11. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.

12.Say 'God bless you' when you hear someone sneeze.

13. When you lose, don't lose the lesson.

14. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.

15. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.

16. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.

17. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and Responsibility for all your actions.

18. Spend some time alone

A true friend is someone who reaches for your hand and touches your heart.

Friends And Friendships

A simple friend, when visiting, acts like a guest.

A real friend opens your refrigerator and helps himself.

A simple friend brings a bottle of wine to your party.

A real friend comes early to help you cook and stays late to help you clean.

A simple friend has never seen you cry.

A real friend has shoulders soggy from your tears.

A simple friend doesn't know your parents' first names.

A real friend has their phone numbers in his address book.

A simple friend hates it when you call after they've gone to bed.

A real friend asks you why you took so long to call.

A simple friend expects you to always be there for them.

A real friend expects to always be there for you!

A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have an argument.

A real friend calls you after you had a fight.

A simple friend wonders about your romantic history.

A real friend knows enough to blackmail you with it.

Life And Tequila

If life gives you a lemon, ask for Tequila and Salt

You may not realized this but this is absolutely true.

1. In this life, there are at least 2 people you would give everything for.

2. At least 10 people in this life loves you.

3. The only reason why anyone would ever hate you is because you are everything they are not.

4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone.

5. Every night, someone thinks of you before they sleep.

6. You mean the world to someone.

7. When you make your biggest mistake ever, some good will come from it.

8. When you think life has turned its back on you, take another look.

9. You are special and unique, someone you don't even know loves you.

10. Good friends are like stars, you don't see them sometimes, but they are always there.

Happiness makes you kind,

Trials make you strong,

Sorrows make you human,

Failures make you grow,

Success makes you humble,

And Love keeps you going.

Life Should Be Like This

Looking at those you love in a new light

1) Laid back when you feel a need for it.

2) Give a call to your friends once in a while.

3) Always smile to your man.

4) Go to a hair saloon, it makes you look like a million bucks.

5) Just by hanging around, you make a house a home.

Touched My Heart

The Fool by Patrick Henry Pearce

Since the wise men have not spoken, I speak that am only a fool; A fool that hath loved his folly, Yea, more than the wise men their books or their counting houses or their quiet homes, Or their fame in men's mouths; A fool that in all his days hath done never a prudent thing.... Never hath counted the cost, nor reckoned if another reaped The fruit of his mighty sowing, content to scatter the seed; A fool that is unrepentant, and that soon at the end of all Shall laugh in his lonely heart as the ripe ears fall to the reaping-hooks And the poor are filled that were empty, Tho' he go hungry. I have squandered the splendid years that the Lord God gave to my youth In attempting impossible things, deeming them alone worth the toil.

Lord, if I had the years I would squander them over again, Aye, fling them from me! For this I have heard in my heart, that a man shall scatter, not hoard, Shall do the deed of to-day, nor take thought of to-morrow's teen, Shall not bargain or huckster with God... The lawyers have sat in council, the men with the keen, long faces, And said, `This man is a fool,' and others have said, `He blasphemeth;' And the wise have pitied the fool that hath striven to give a life In the world of time and space among the bulks of actual things, To a dream that was dreamed in the heart, and that only the heart could hold.

O wise men, riddle me this: what if the dream come true? What if the dream come true? and if millions unborn shall dwell In the house that I shaped in my heart, the noble house of my thought? Lord, I have staked my soul, I have staked the lives of my kin On the truth of Thy dreadful word. Do not remember my failures, But remember this my faith And so I speak. Yea, ere my hot youth pass, I speak to my people and say: Ye shall be foolish as I; ye shall scatter, not save; Ye shall venture your all, lest ye lose what is more than all; Ye shall call for a miracle, taking Christ at His word. And for this I will answer, O people, answer here and hereafter, O people that I have loved, shall we not answer together?

You Are Perfect - Braude's Source Book For Speakers & Writers

When you think that you've made no difference in your life, when the going seems all uphill; there will always be someone in this world who thinks you're perfect. Who thinks that what you have done and what you continue to do, makes the world a better place.

Whoever you are, there is some younger person who thinks you are perfect. There is some work that will never be done if you don't do it. There is someone who would miss you if you were gone. There is a place that you alone can fill. - Jacob M. Braude

The mistakes of yesterday or even today does not matter. What matters is that you stay in the fight, and one day your time will come. And others will stand tall because of what you have done.
