    Lessons to Learn Today

    True happiness is not always to achieve my goals,
    but to learn to appreciate with what I have achieved.

    I will learn that I should control my attitude,
    and not let my attitude control me.

    I will learn that to be rich is not to have the most,
    but to need the least.

    It is futile to compare myself to others,
    because there is always someone better or worse than I am.

    It takes years to build trust,
    and a few seconds to destroy it.

    There are people who love me very much,
    but simply do not know how to show their feelings.

    I will learn to forgive by practicing forgiveness.

    I cannot make anyone love me,
    but learn to let myself be loved.

    What is most valuable is not what I have in my life,
    but who I have in my life.

    It only takes a few seconds to hurt people I love,
    and that it can take years to heal.

    Money can buy everything but happiness.

    While at times I may be entitled to be upset,
    that does not give me the right to upset those around me.

    True friends are scarce, and when I have found one
    I have found a true treasure.

    It is not always important that I be forgiven by others,
    but that I forgive myself.

    I am the master of what I keep to myself
    and the slave of what I say.

    Happiness is a decision,
    and decide to be happy today with what I am and what I have,
    not die from envy and jealousy of what I lack.

    Those who are honest with themselves ,
    without considering the consequences, succeed in life.

    I will reap what I plant.
    If I plant gossip, I will harvest suspicion.
    If I plant love, I will harvest happiness.

    Wonderful! Thanks for sharing. I have a thought for today also that I would like to share.
