“I’ve Learned That …”

“What in your life is calling you,

When all the noise is silenced,

The meetings adjourned…

The lists laid aside

And the wild Iris blooms

By itself

In the dark forest…

What still pulls on your soul?”     (Rumi)

“The choices you make now, the people you surround yourself with, they all have the potential to affect your life, even who you are, forever.”     (Sarah Dessen, The Truth About Forever)

“How many slams in an old screen door?  Depends how loud you shut it.  How many slices in a bread?  Depends how thin you cut it.  How much good inside a day?  Depends how good you live ’em.  How much love inside a friend?  Depends how much you give ’em.”    (Shel Silverstein)

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.  I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.  I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.  I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a ‘life.’  I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.  I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.  I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.  I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone.  People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.  I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”     (Maya Angelou)

One thought on ““I’ve Learned That …”

  1. life is a game , all that is needed is to play it hard and selfish and yeah to achieve any success we need to go through the pain, because until we realize our potentials , we aint gonna get successful in life and thats what pain and troubles makes us realize- our potentials.
