" We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude."

Be Extra-Ordinary

If I can sing yet other can sing better than me
I'm still an ordinary.
If I can dance yet other can dance better than me
I'm still an ordinary.
If I can play piano, flutes, guitar or drums yet other better than me
I'm still ordinary.
If I can write stories yet other can write better than me
I'm still an ordinary.
So what could make me an extra-ordinary?

If I pray every 10 minutes
I can be extra-ordinary.
If I show care to a hundreds people a day
I can be extra-ordinary.
If I can make a multitude smile in just a minute
I can be extra-ordinary.
If I do things good more than the common people do
I can be an extra-ordinary.
Strive more, pursue more, inspire more,
Do more than ordinary.
Be extra-ordinary!!!

" When you do your best and put forth sincere efforts and you realize your efforts are not praised and going in vain, then don't stop being good. You are actually a star who shines without being appreciated but one cannot ignore the light and the warmth spread by it."

" Words are the language of mind. Tears are the language of heart. And silence is the language of soul."
Written in 2011 by Mukesh Sharma --- India
A bad man may hide himself behind the words propagated by his crafty mind, so words can't trusted at their face value. However anything said in the language of heart and soul, which are universal languages, needs no words, no learning. Every human being is born with these languages. A mother interacts with her new-born baby first in these languages only.

" We search for happiness everywhere, but we are like Tolstoy's fabled beggar who spent his life sitting on a pot of gold, under him the whole time. Your treasure --- your perfection --- is within you already. But to claim it, you must leave the buy commotion of the mind and abandon the desires of the ego and enter into the silence of the heart."

" We are our own individuals so we can make the changes we need in our life, to live our life the way we want to. This is our life, our body, our mind, and our heart. We do what we want with it since we own it, don't let anyone tell you different. Live your life, it's yours."

" Sometimes it takes tiny steps to get to the top of the staircase but if you keep moving forward and upward, you will get there."
Written in 2011 by Marion Licchiello-Lenz --- New York
I believe with anything in life such as losing weight, getting a promotion, finding the love of your life, learning, getting healthy, and anything that you desire, you need to take the first step to get there and then just keep moving forward. Before you know it, you can be at the top!

" Although some may say otherwise, the past should be remembered. Accept it, learn from it and expand it in such a manner that it can someday include your current ideal vision of your future."
Written in 2011 by Virgil Cotia --- Romania
If you give your best in your pursuits, the "new" past will give you momentum and the "old" one will give you the wisdom and patience to avoid or overcome obstacles.

" It is not wise to spoil what you have by desiring what you don't have; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for and one of the greatest thing we all must acknowledge is greed destroys happiness."

" Spring is upon us, and with every spring brings new life. A fresh start for many things that are right under our noses. The leaves on the trees are growing back, the aroma of fresh blooming flowers in the air, bees will be buzzing around collecting their pollen to make honey. So many things happen in this season and along with the renewal of life, comes happiness for longer days, fresh clean air to breathe, and a new sense of joy that the long winter is now over. Enjoy this wonderful season and add a (spring) to your step."
