Do not take anything
as being forever
because forever is only as long as today.
Know that the people who are the richest
are not those who have the most,
but those who need the least.
We are at our strongest when life is at its worst,
and at our weakest
when life no longer offers a challenge.
It is wiser not to expect
but to hope,
for in expecting you ask for disappointment
whereas in hoping you invite surprise.
Unhappiness doesn't come from not having something you want,
but from the lack of something inside that you need.
There are things and people to hold
and those to let go of .
Letting go doesn't mean you lose
but that you acquire that which has been waiting
around the corner.
Most of all remember to use your dreams
as a way of knowing yourself better,
and as an inspiration
to reach for your star....
