thought for the day!!!!

“THE ART OF BEING YOURSELF AT YOUR BEST IS THE ART OF UNFOLDING YOUR PERSONALITY INTO THE PERSON YOU WANT TO BE . . .

BE GENTLE WITH YOURSELF,

LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF,

TO FORGIVE YOURSELF,

FOR ONLY AS WE HAVE THE RIGHT ATTITUDE TOWARDS OURSELVES CAN WE HAVE THE RIGHT ATTITUDE TOWARDS OTHERS.”

Hi Jamie, I read this again and I really like it...and it's something to always remember...I also read Anonymous~~yes, some people do have major issues but that doesn't mean they aren't good people...it just means somewhere along their path they were hurt at one time or another...

YES, Jennifer that is so true, once someone is hurt or made to feel like they are NOT all that they can truly be, one does NOT fall in love with one's self, and to truly LOVE others, we MUST love ourselves first. WE ARE All GREAT CREATURES great and small and we must let our LIGHT shine so brightly and be PROUD of who we are and NOT be someone else. No one wants to be a 2nd rate version of someone else, be YOU and be Unique so that you are special!
and you MY friend are very SPECIAL and loved by so many so Never feel like you are not the BEST person in the whole world!!
big hugs 2 U today,
jamie

Hi Jamie, I think your amazing! your always positive and uplifting... and I know things aren't always positive in everyones lives but you make the bad things seem so small and the good things so great... that they over shadow the bad...you make people feel good about themselves... I'm one of those peoples...:o)
