Wisdom For Life's Journey
Your life is a journey ahead of you.
EACH DAY IS A NEW BEGINNING.
Yesterday is a friend that will guide you.
There will be good times and bad times;
Cherish the good because they make life sweet,
but be thankful for the bad
for through them you come to know
what is most important in life,
and the meaning of life.
There will be times when you face difficult decisions
and you won’t know which way to turn.
The important thing is that you make a choice
and move forward,
as no one gets anywhere by standing still.
There will be times that test your strength and endurance
but don’t give up;
refuse to accept defeat,
for perseverance is the key to success.
There will be times when you are hurt by love.
Forgive those who hurt you
so that your heart will be free to love again.
There will be times when you make mistakes.
Remember that mistakes are not a reflection of your self-worth
but of your humanity.
Nor do they make you less of a person.
Because of the lessons you have learned
you have grown and become wiser.
There will be times when your search for happiness
leads to frustration and disappointment,
but don’t stop believing in happiness.
Being happy with yourself
goes a long way toward knowing happiness in your life.
There will be times when life seems unfair
but don’t allow it to make you bitter,
or steal your joy.
Nothing is worth this.
When fear stands in the way of reaching out for your dreams,
confront your fears
and you will conquer them.
There will be times when your faith is shaken
but don’t despair,
you are stronger than you think.
When you need it most,
faith will rise up,
and carry you above the storm,
and to victory….
