" If you've lost a relationship, look back and laugh, look back and smile, look back and realize the two years you had together were only a portion and life moves on, it really does. If your relationship lasted two years and you live to be a hundred, that's two percent of your life. What are you going to do with the next 98 percent?"

" Hurt, wounded, destroyed. These are the words that describe every bad moment in life. But there is only one word to describe all the good ones. Friends. Friends are always there for you through thick and thin. No matter what, they are always right by your side. When life is at its worst, do they abandon you? No. They are by you and help you through it. Friends, the best word in the world."

It tells us that when we say, "I don't want to do that!" that maybe that whatever we are being asked or told to do, will benefit us later. An example: becoming what we actually set out to be.February 9, 2009
" I dream for happy things to happen. Dreaming is nice and helps me get through sometimes. REASON: it's my mind. In my dreams I can be anything, I can do anything. There are no walls keeping me from getting to where I could be in life. To get somewhere in life, you have to become. To become, you have to learn. To learn, you have to fail. To fail, you have to take chances."

I selected this one because everyone makes mistakes and we always think that because something bad happens that our life is gonna go down hill from there. No matter what you do, you can always bring yourself to a higher standard than what people think you're at. If it is robbing a store or failing an exam, tomorrow's a new day to change and make sure you don't rob a store or fail your next test.February 4, 2009
