I Wish I Could

I wish i could fly like a bird,
Above everyone in the blue sky.
I wish I could roar like a lion,
And scare off all my enemies.
I wish I could have been the best,
Among all my friends.


I wish I could sing like the birds,
Every morning before the sun rises.
I wish I could jump like the monkeys,
And the people would smile at me.

That I am one of you
And I live with kind people
Like you

" Let it go, let it roll right off your shoulders. Don't you know the hardest part is over? Let it slide; let your clarity define you. In the end, you will only just remember how it feels."

I love the last line most. Challenges are like ceremonies; a birthday celebration for instance: a lot of wonderful things may happen that day but they'll all be forgotten with time. The celebration only COMES to PASS. I love the second line too because "as the going gets tough, the tough gets going".

" There is a reason behind everything occurring to you whether it is good or bad. The reason may not be clear to you at present but later on, when it's disclosed, you will appreciate the occurring because whatever happens, it happens by the will of the God. Sometimes the bad experiences shake us so badly that our vision becomes blurred and we cannot see the good thing lying underneath. Change your way of looking at the things then you will be able to build a positive cosmic aura around yourself; you would be able to find opportunity in every difficulty. Believe me it's true. Trust the God and everything will be fine."

" People always say that life is like a roller coaster ride. But the worst part is that you don't get to go again. You've got that ONE chance to feel the wind on your face, smell the rain, climb mountains and experience this wonderful journey called life. So LIVE it! It definitely isn't easy. It'll scare you and beat you up but take that chance because it's worth it."

I always hear people saying, "Life sucks...and then you die" but they never realize the fact that they get to LIVE it before they die. Instead of living every moment of their life to the fullest, they waste time thinking about the stuff they can't do and watch their lives go by without them.

" God created each of us in a different and unique way. And that's why there's no such word as "perfection" that exists in this world, only imperfection, which makes us really special. Don't be shy and hide those little imperfections that you have because they're the only things that you have and others don't. Have faith and show your true inner-self and shine on!"

Seven Cardinal Rules Of Life:

SMILE- you don't own all the problems in the world!

No one is in charge of your happiness except you!

What other people think of you is none of your business!

Make peace with your past, so it won't screw up the present!

Time heals almost everything; give time!

Don't compare your life with others and don't judge them, you have no idea what their life is all about!

Stop thinking too much. It's all right not to know all the answers, they will come to you when you least expect it!

" From much thought and experience, I have concluded the most precious gifts all of man is blessed with are time and a consciousness. With these concepts, all is attainable and a pure sense of happiness can be sustained."
Written in 2010 by Tyler H., Age 16 --- California
I've developed this quote to help people understand that to be happy, nothing is needed except your mind, your ability to control your thoughts, to have a good attitude about life, to know that time in itself is a blessing and to know that all you need is your thoughts.
