Some Important Don'ts

Don't determine your worth by comparing yourself with others, it is because we are different that each of us is special.

Don't set your goals by what other people deem important, only you know what is best for you.

Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart, cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless.

Don't let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future, by living your life one day at a time you live all the days of your life.

Don't give up when you still have something to give, nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying.

Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect; it is this fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Don't be afraid to encounter risks, it is by taking chances that we learn how to be brave.

Don't shut love out of your life by saying it's impossible to find. The quickest way to receive love is to give love, the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly, and the best way to keep love is to give it wings.

Don't dismiss your dreams. To be without dreams is to be without hope; to be without hope is to be without purpose.

Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only where you've been, but also where you're going.

Life is not a race, but a journey - to be savoured each step of the way.

Look Ahead

A major source of discouragement is the mistaken assumption that the future equals the past. It is difficult indeed to keep going when previous experience has produced so much disappointment. But the fact is that life does not have to follow a straight line. At any point, it is possible to change direction.

Great accomplishments often come on the heels of bitter disappointments. Rather than assuming that you're doomed by your past, consider all the ways you can create a bright future.

Each day, each moment is a new opportunity, independent of what has gone before. Learn what you can by looking back, but spend the bulk of your time and attention looking forward. The past may be full of despair, but you don't have to live there anymore.

Your new home is being built in the future, and you can make it as wonderful as you wish.

Written by Ralph Marston
