Say it.. Mean it.. Believe it...

Some things that are getting me thru life at the moment:

"Regret is the cancer of life."

"Live Well, Laugh often, Love much"
(although Im having issues in the "love" world..Im loving what's already mine)

Comes the Dawn

After a while, you learn the subtle difference
between holding a hand and chaining a soul;
and you learn that love doesn't mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses arent contracts
and presents arnt promises.
You begin to accept your defeats with your head up
and your eyes open, with the grace of an adult
not the grief of a child.

And you learn to build all your roads on today,
because tomorrow's ground is to uncertain.
and futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.

After a while, you learn that even sunshine burns
if you get to much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul.
instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.

And you learn that you really can endure.....
that you really are strong.....
and you really do have worth....

And you learn, and you learn, and you learn
