Did anyone ever tell you
Just how special you are?
The light that you emit
Might even light a star.

Did anyone ever tell you
How important you make others feel?
Somebody out here is smiling
About love that is so real.

Did anyone ever tell you
Many times, when they were sad
Your email made them smile a bit.
In fact it made them glad?
For the time you spend sending things
And sharing whatever you find
There are no words to thank you,
But somebody thinks you're fine.

Did anyone ever tell you
Just how much they love you?
Well, my dearest online friend
Today I am telling You.

Message by George Carlin

"The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but
shorter tempers, wider Freeways but narrower viewpoints. We spend more,
but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and
smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees
but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more
problems, more medicine, but less wellness.
We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read
too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too
much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to
life not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but
have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbour. We conquered
outer space but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better
things.
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We've conquered the atom,
but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but
accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more
computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but
we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small
character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of
two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are
days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night
stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to
quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and
nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to
you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to
just hit delete...
Remember; spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going
to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because
that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the
only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but
most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes
from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will
not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious
thoughts in your mind.

IF YOU DON'T

There is a destination for every journey, a final
episode for every drama series, a finishing line
for every race, a goal for every plan, a product at
the end of every process, a result at the end of a
match and an at last at the end of a difficult life
story.

There is an at last at the end of your pain, an at
last at the end of your studies, an at last at the
end of your flooding sea of tears, an at last at
the end of your journey of struggles, an at last at
the end of your loneliness, an at last at the end
of your unemployment, an at last at the end of
your tunnel of frustration and discouragement, an
at last at the end of a winter season of debts,
lack and hopelessness, an at last at the end of
your sickness and at last at the end of your
storms of life.

Take note that in the middle of your hardships,
there is an at last waiting for you, an at last that
is going to bring you a smile, an at last that is going to bring you healing, an at last that is going to introduce you to love, an at last that is going to
lead to your promotion and breakthrough.

Remember, at last is only seen by those who
refuse to quit, at last is only reached by those
are persistent, at last is only perceived by those
who are positive, at last is only experienced by
those who are prayerful, at last is only achieved
by those who are perspiring, at last is only
enjoyed by those who are willing to endure to the
end.

Hang in there because all the things you have
been pursuing and desiring will eventually fall into
place. At last you will be employed, at last you will
be married, at last you will get your promotion, at
last you will give birth to your dreams, at last you
will be released from the prison of stagnancy and
routine, at last you will experience healing, at last
you will experience the restoration of all the
things you lost, at last you will be recognised for
your achievements, at last you will triumph over
what has been holding you back, at last you will be free from the chains of rejection, abuse and exploitation.

At last you will be the source of inspiration and
not the bill board of pain, at last you will be
celebrated for your long sought-after victory, at
last your cries will turn into laughter, at last your
tears will evaporate into a smile, at last your
dreams will be accomplished and your purpose
fulfilled, at last you will start living and stop
existing, at last you will be applauded and
rewarded for your brilliance, at last you will be
free and free at last.

AT LAST

You are pregnant with destiny

Suicide is not the answer, giving up is not an
option, succumbing to your struggles is not a
solution and abusing drugs and alcohol is not a way
out. Just remember, you are pregnant with
destiny.

You may have been imprisoned by your painful
past, abused, bruised, rejected, abandoned,
betrayed, falsely accused, ill-treated, overlooked,
neglected and labelled a loser. Just remember,
you are pregnant with destiny.

You may sometimes feel that your life is
meaningless, worthless, loveless, useless,
futureless, directionless, hopeless, powerless,
visionless and progressive less. Just remember,
you are pregnant with destiny.
It doesn’t matter how long you have been
waiting for God, opportunities, healing, love,
business, employment, breakthrough, assistance
and success. Just remember, you are pregnant
with destiny.

There is something great growing inside you.
There is a tomorrow beckoning you. There is a red
carpet laid for you. There is a podium erected for
you. There are reservations God has made for
your provision. Just remember, you are pregnant
with destiny.
You are pregnant with answers, solutions, ideas,
plans, songs, books, businesses, poems, sermons,
movie scripts, plays inventions, talents, skills,
creativity, knowledge, wisdom and thoughts you
need to share with your generation and
generations to come. Just remember, you are
pregnant with destiny.

Don’t create a void by not doing what you are
supposed to do. Don’t leave a blank page on the
earth’s page by not attaching your unique
signature of announcing that you were here. Don’t
enrich the grave with what you were meant to
share. Don't relocate from this world without
having appeared on the stage of life. Don’t die
without leaving your footprints to those who are
coming behind you. Just remember, you are
pregnant with destiny.

In everything you are doing, in everything you
are going through and in everything you are
aspiring for, just remember, you are pregnant
with destiny.

Attitude

Attitude

by: Charles Swindoll

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes,
than what others think or say or do.

It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.
It will make or break a company... a church... a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding
the attitude we will embrace for that day.

We cannot change our past... we cannot change the
fact that people will 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... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens
to me and 90% how I react to it.
And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes."

Climb 'Til Your Dream Comes True

Climb 'Til Your Dream Comes True

by: Helen Steiner Rice

Often your tasks will be many,
And more than you think you can do.
Often the road will be rugged
And the hills insurmountable, too.
But always remember,
The hills ahead
Are never as steep as they seem,
And with Faith in your heart
Start upward
And climb 'til you reach your dream.
For nothing in life that is worthy
Is ever too hard to achieve
If you have the courage to try it,
And you have the faith to believe.
For faith is a force that is greater
Than knowledge or power or skill,
And many defeats turn to triumph
If you trust in God's wisdom and will.
For faith is a mover of mountains,
There's nothing that God cannot do,
So, start out today with faith in your heart,
And climb 'til your dream comes true!

How to overcome indecisiveness

Andy Andrews, an author and motivational speaker, tells a story about Hernan Cortes,
a Spanish Conquistador who went in search of and captured a large Aztec treasure.
Before he left for the New World, he gathered the troops he would need and told
them the story of how their life would change after they captured the treasure.
The day finally came for Cortes and his troops to sail.  Each day on the journey
he told his troops the same story about the gold and how it would change their
life.
When they reached the New World, they camped along the shore for a few weeks and
each day Cortes told his troops the same story about the treasure.
Finally, the troops were restless and were eager to find the gold.  Cortes knew
they were ready.  He assembled the troops and gave them one last order - "Burn the
boats."  The men were perplexed, but did as Cortes had said.  Cortes explained to
them that by burning the boats they were eliminating any reason they had to fall
back to safety - it was either capture the treasure or die.
After the troops burnt the boats, they marched off and captured the treasure. So, what are the boats in your life and your business?  What are the things that
give you perception that they are providing you safety, security, and comfort?
What reasons are you making for not burning these boats?

Be thankful

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement..
Be thankful for each new challenge, because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes. They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary, because it means you've made a difference.
It's easy to be thankful for the good things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks.
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.

Take hold of every moment

A friend of mine opened his wife's underwear drawer and picked up a silk paper wrapped package:
"This, - he said - isn't any ordinary package." He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box.
"She got this the first time we went to New York, 8 or 9 years ago. She has never put it on. Was saving it for a special occasion.
Well, I guess this is it. He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothings he was taking to the funeral house, his wife had just died. He turned to me and said:
"Never save something for a special occasion. Every day in your life is a special occasion".

Look Well to this day


Look well to this day,
For it and it alone is life.
In its brief course
Lie all the essence of your existence:
The Glory of Growth
The Satisfaction of Achievement
The Splendor of Beauty
For yesterday is but a dream,
And tomorrow is but a vision.
But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Tea cup

There was a couple who used to go to England to shop in the beautiful stores. This was their twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. They both liked antiques and pottery and especially teacups.
One day in this beautiful shop they saw a beautiful teacup. They said "May we see that? We've never seen one quite so beautiful." As the lady handed it to them, suddenly the teacup spoke.
"You don't understand," it said. "I haven't always been a teacup.
There was a time when I was red and I was clay. My master took me and rolled me and patted me over and over and I yelled out, let me alone,' but he only smiled, 'Not yet'.
"Then I was placed on a spinning wheel," the teacup said, "and suddenly I was spun around and around and around. 'Stop it! I'm getting dizzy!' I screamed. But the master only nodded and said, 'Not yet.'
Then he put me in the oven. I never felt such heat. I wondered why he wanted to burn me, and I yelled, and I knocked at the door. I could see him through the opening and I could read his lips as he shook his head, 'Not yet.'
"Finally the door opened, he put me on the shelf, and I began to cool. 'There, that's better,' I said. And he brushed and painted me all over. The fumes were horrible. I thought I would gag. 'Stop it, stop it!' I cried. He only nodded, 'Not yet.'
"Then suddenly he put me back into the oven, not like the first one. This was twice as hot and I knew I would suffocate. I begged. I pleaded. I screamed. I cried. All the time I could see him through the opening nodding his head, saying, 'Not yet.'
"Then I knew there wasn't any hope. I would never make it. I was ready to give up. But the door opened and he took me out and placed me on the shelf. One hour later he handed me a mirror and said, 'Look at yourself.' And I did. I said, 'That's not me; that couldn't be me. It's beautiful. I'm beautiful.'
'I want you to remember, then,' he said, 'I know it hurt to be rolled and patted, but if I just left you, you'd have dried up. I know it made you dizzy to spin around on the wheel, but if I had stopped, you would have crumbled. I know it hurt and it was hot and disagreeable in the oven, but if I hadn't put you there, you would have cracked. I know the fumes were bad when I brushed and painted you all over, but if I hadn't done that, you never would have hardened. You would not have had any color in your life, and if I hadn't put you back in that second oven, you wouldn't survive for very long because the hardness would not have held. Now you are a finished product. You are what I had in mind when I first began with you.

A book or a burger

The body needs food just as your mind needs information. Your body needs a burger while your mind needs a book. A burger fills your stomach while a book enriches your brain. A burger will give you temporary satisfaction while a book will provide you with permanent fulfillment. A burger will give you energy while a book will give you ideas.
A burger will make you deformed while a book will keep you informed. A burger will increase your weight while a book will increase your mental capacity. A burger will keep you where you are while a book will transport you to where you have never been. A burger will cost you money while a book will pay you dividends. A burger will disappear after entering your mouth while a book will remain even after feeding your brain.
A burger will take you to the toilet while a book will equip you into reaching your desired destiny. A burger may be appetizing but a book is empowering. A burger will solve your hunger problem while a book will address your physical, mental, spiritual, social and financial challenges.
As you feed your body today, don’t forget to make provision for your mind, for what you don’t feed will starve to death. A mind that is not fed will remain undeveloped and undeveloped mind will produce a shapeless miserable life.

Think and think again

The most powerful thing about human beings is the ability to think. But sadly, very few actually get involved in this mental exercise. The mind continues to be a rich diamond deposit that has never been mined, an overflowing oil vein that has never been drilled and a treasure chest that has never been dug out. As one man once said, “when man fell into sin, God decided as punishment to hide the keys to man’s breakthrough. He first thought about placing them on top of the highest mountain but He realised man was capable through his tenacity to find them, next it was the bottom of the ocean but again God knew man could dive down there and retrieve them. Hiding them under the ground was also ruled out because man will dig until he finds them. But after a lot of deliberations with the heavenly hosts, God decided to put everything inside the man because this was the one place he will not notice nor bother to search.”
The mind continues to overflow with ideas that have never been used, plans that have never been implemented, solutions that have never been applied, dreams that were never pursued and directions that were never followed. What you are looking for on the outside is ironically locked on your inside. You have been endowed with strength, equipped with brilliance and loaded with greatness.
Therefore in order to live positively in a world covered with the dark clouds of negativity, think and think again. Stop blaming others for your frustrations. Stop pointing an accusing finger at somebody for your failed relationships. Stop making excuses about the direction your life took. Stop living in a mud of depression, hopelessness and blunders. Think and think again.
If you don’t think, you will remain chained to your mess. If you don’t think, you will rot. If you don’t think, you will stink. If you don’t think, you will remain deformed. If you don’t think, you will drown in a salty sea of tears. If you don’t think, you will remain somebody else’s doormat. If don’t think, you will remain a tea bag that others will use to draw out what they desire. If you don’t think, you will wither in sadness. If you don’t think, you will remain unnoticed, unrecognised and uncelebrated. If you don’t think, you will remain a servant of somebody else. If you don’t think, you will continue trying to make ends meet from the bread crumbs that fall from other people’s breakfast table. Think and think again.
The world is ruled by thinkers. Bread is only enjoyed by thinkers. Dreams are realised by thinkers. Discoveries are made by thinkers. Think and think again.
Think positive thoughts and not negative ones. Think solutions and not problems. Think about the palace of your future and not the museum of your past. Think about where you want to be and not where you have been. Think about what you can, and not, what you can’t. Think about your goals and not your struggles. Think about the people you want to meet and not those who walked away from you. Think about God’s goodness and not the devil’s evil intentions. Think and think again.

Stop competing

Competition is essential in sports and business. Competition brings the best out of competitors. Competition opens doors of expansion and growth. Competition brings challenges and opportunities to both business and sports personalities. Competition leads to success and rewards. But ironically, competition is not ideal in the journey called life.
You can’t go through life competing with others. You can’t go through life trying to outperform others. You can’t go through life trying to match up to others. You can’t go through life trying to impress others. You can’t go through life trying to be better than others. Life is a marathon and not a short sprint.
In order to live meaningfully, stop faking the success you know you can’t afford. Stop living about your means. Stop pretending to be a top dog when you know you are still struggling down there to find a way to the top. Stop living in a place you know you can’t afford. Stop competing for recognition when you know your bank account is drying up. Stop borrowing the glamour you know you can’t repay. Stop throwing a wedding and parties that are beyond your pocket. Stop appearing flashy when your funds are getting empty. Stop trying to make an impression when nobody is paying attention. Stop the foolishness of competing before you end up becoming a fool. Stop the madness of competing before you end up in a mental institution.
Take note that overspending leads to debts. Take note that competition breeds discontentment. Take note that competition leads to disaster, divorce and depression. Take note that competition leads to gambling. Take note that competition leads to suicide. Take note that competition leads to crime. Take note that competition is one of the sources of unhappiness. Take note that competition creates problems.
Take note that contentment is a decision and not a feeling. Take note that life can be fulfilling when you live at your own pace. Take note that life can be gratifying when you built one brick at a time. Take note that life can be less stressful and healthy when you quit competing. Take note that life can be pleasurable when you focus on your dreams and desires. Take note that life can be enjoyable when you live according to your means and standards.
