It is true that those we meet can change us, sometimes so profoundly that we are not the same afterwards, even unto our names.

I didn’t understand the significance of his resignation till I was told hes only the 2nd pope after 600 years to give up his position. 

Everyone else died as pope.

Food for thought!

Love Wealth Success

Here is an inspirational story I read somewhere :
 
Long time ago in China there was a time when people used to have gardens outside there houses. Almost all the families had one.
This story is about one such ordinary family having a modest house with a garden in front.
The family was going through a tough phase as the husband was not doing well in his career, the family was financially quite badly off and this was causing discord in their home.
One evening the wife was strolling in her garden waiting for the husband to come home from work.
From the corner of her eye she saw three old men standing in the far corner of her garden.
She gradually started walking towards them.
As she came closer she noticed that they were noble looking elderly men with long white beards.
She did not recognize them, but being a kind woman, she said “I don’t think I know you, but you must be hungry. Please come in and have a cup of tea and something to eat.”
“Is the man of the house home?” they asked.
“No”, the wife said, “my husband is out.”
“Then we cannot come in now”, they replied.
In the meantime her husband returned home from work after another gruelling day.
He was obviously not in a good mood since, as usual; he had a bad day at work.
The wife immediately told him that they had guests standing outside and suggested they invite them.
Initially the husband was reluctant but then he finally agreed after being persuaded by his wife’s insistence, so he said, “Okay, go and tell them that I am home and invite them in.” 
The woman went out and invited the men in.
“We do not go into a house together,” they replied.
“Why is that?” asked the puzzled wife.
One of the old men explained: “His name is Wealth,” he said pointing to one of his friends, and then pointing to the other one he said, “He is Success, and I am Love. Only one of us will come into your home. It is for you to decide which one of us three you want to invite into your home.”
Seeing the confusion on her face, they told the wife, “We suggest you go in and discuss with your husband which one of us you want in your home.”
The wife went in and told her husband about what the three old men had said.
The husband was overjoyed. “How nice,” he said, “Let us invite Success. He will make me successful in my career, I will no longer be a loser, a failure, and all our troubles will go away.”
But his wife disagreed, and said, “My dear, why don’t we invite Wealth? Let him come in and fill our home with plenty of wealth – it will make us rich and prosperous and you won’t even have to work and we all can enjoy throughout our lives.”
Their daughter was listening from the other corner of the house. The daughter wanted peace and harmony in the house so she said: “Let us invite Love. Our home will then be filled with love – that’s what we need most now!”
At first they did not agree with their daughter’s suggestion but the daughter was very stubborn and would not change her mind so the two parents finally gave in and agreed to invite Love.
“Okay, we will do as our daughter says,” the husband said to his wife, “you go out and invite Love to be our guest.”
The woman went out and told the three old men, “We wish to invite Love into our home.”
Love stepped forward and the wife started leading him towards her house.
As she conducted Love into her home she noticed that the other two Success and Wealth also followed and entered the house.
Surprised, the lady asked Wealth and Success: “I only invited Love. Why are you two coming in?”
The old men replied together: “If you had invited Wealth or Success, the other two of us would have stayed out, but since you invited Love, wherever he goes, we go with him. When Love comes into your lives, into your home, into your family, Success and Wealth automatically follow.
 
Do you agree, Dear Reader. Is this relevant today?
Wherever there is Love, there can be also Wealth and Success
and suppose even if those two, Wealth and Success are not there, it is Love that matters the most …

Being a Human Being

Don’t try to be perfect.  Just be an excellent example of being human 🙂 😉

Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Growth requires pain. – Be patient and tough, someday this pain will be useful to you.  Those with the strength to succeed in the long run are the ones who lay a firm foundation of growth with the bricks that life has thrown at them.  So don’t be afraid to fall apart for a little while.  Because when it happens, the situation will open an opportunity for you to grow and rebuild yourself into the brilliant person you are capable of being.

  • You will learn as long as you live. – There is no stage of life that does not contain new lessons.  As long as you live there will be something more to learn.  And as long as you follow your heart and never stop learning, you’ll turn not older, but newer every day.

  • There is a positive lesson in every life experience. – Don’t forget to acknowledge the lesson, especially when things don’t go your way.  If you make a mistake that sets you back a little, or a business deal or a relationship doesn’t work, it only means a new opportunity is out there waiting.  And the lesson you just learned is the first step towards it.

  • True beauty lives under the skin. – When you start to really know someone, most of their physical characteristics vanish in your mind.  You begin to dwell in their energy, recognize their scent, and appreciate their wit.  You see only the essence of the person, not the shell.  That’s why you can’t fall in love with physical beauty.  You can lust after it, be infatuated by it, or want to own it.  You can love it with your eyes and your body for a little while, but not your heart in the long-term.  And that’s why, when you really connect with a person’s inner self, most physical imperfections become irrelevant.

  • Only you know what you’re capable of. – Unless someone can look into the core of your heart, and see the degree of your passion, or look into the depths of your soul and see the extent of your will, then they have no business telling you what you can or cannot achieve.  Because while they may know the odds, they do not know YOU, and what you’re capable of.  That’s something only you know.

  • Your love creates your happiness. The happiness you feel is in direct proportion to the love you give.  When you love, you subconsciously strive to become better than you are.  When you strive to become better than you are, everything around you becomes better too.  During your youth, love will be your teacher; in your middle age, love will be your foundation; and in your old age, love will be your fondest memories and your greatest delight. 

  • Your health is your life. – Regardless of the size and shape of your body, it is the greatest tool you will ever own.  Without it, you wouldn’t be alive.  How you take care of it or fail to take care of it can make an enormous difference in the quality of your life.  Exercise to be fit, not skinny.  Eat to nourish your body.  To truly be your best, you must give your body the fuel it needs.  Toss the junk and fill your kitchen with fresh, whole foods.  Run, swim, bike, walk – sweat!  Good health is essential for having the energy, stamina and outlook to tackle your goals & dreams.

  • Your choices design your life. – You have a choice each and every single day.  Choose to appreciate what you have.  Choose to make time for yourself.  Choose to do something that makes you smile.  Choose to be excited.  Choose to laugh at your own silliness.  Choose to spend time with positive people.  Choose to be persistent with your goals.  Choose to try again and again.  Within your choices lie all the tools and resources you need to design the life of your dreams, it’s just a matter of choosing wisely.

  • Negativity poisons the soul. – Don’t let needless drama and negativity stop you from being the best you can be.  Avoid the drama, and focus on what truly matters.  Life is insanely short and your time is precious, so don’t waste your time on trivial matters.  Let go of the things that are weighing you down.  As you unclutter your life, you will slowly free yourself to answer the callings of your inner spirit.

  • This moment is a gift. – The truth is, your whole life has been leading up to this moment.  Think about that for a second.  Every single thing you’ve gone through in life, every high, every low, and everything in between, has led you to this moment right now.  This moment is priceless, and it’s the only moment guaranteed to you.  This moment is your ‘life.’  Don’t miss it. !!

An insight about Me *

Couple-nivjoyjoy-love-hearts-sweet-love-couples-lovers-comments-my-heart-is-yours-yours-only-michelle-angel-romance-stars-couple-dance-sweet-dreams-arena-tags-davromantic-u-and-i-sexy-mm_large

I’ve always wanted to do this blog thing, and have finally started to figure it out, and have now become slightly obsessed with it!

I’m very conservative. Oldest of three kids. I’m obsessed with organizing which also means I’m a neat freak. I love giving and receiving handwritten Thank Yous.

My dream is to one day own my own business, a business of some sort whether it be a bakery, venue, boutique the options are endless.There is an entrepreneur in me somewhere:)

Never an animal lover, but have fallen in love with my @i‘s dog Lucy. I believe that the little things mean the most. Slightly obsessed with reality TV. I’m way too emotional. I’m obsessed with fitness.

Seriously have the best family in the world. Favorite color is purple. My day doesn’t start off right if my bed isn’t made.

I care too much about what people think. Shopping hands down is my favorite thing to do. I hate to gamble/smoke.

I get grouchy when I’m hungry. I have a major sweet tooth.

If I could eat anything every day, I’d choose cake. I’m deathly afraid of mice. I hate being cold.

I love to plan anything, which also means I love lists, you’ll find them all over my house.

As my Dad always told me, you can do anything you set your mind to..I’m just a simple girl with BIG dreams:)

Thanks for stopping by! I love meeting new people, so please follow me if your heart so desires. I hope that this blog can in some way be inspiring, motivating, or just fun to read.

Every moment we spent together
Has touched our lives, our souls forever
The things that we shared and learned
Is permanent growth that we’ve earned.

The person that I have grown into today
Did not get there by chance, no way
I am who I am partly because of you
And you are YOU because of me, too.

The changes I see
and what I have learned about me
are a response to how we affected our lives
and what we discover in each others eyes.

It is uncertain if we have to part or one day live together
Either way, we have touched our lives forever!
No matter what the future will show
No matter what we are told.

We are connected on such a deep levels
That no one can remove that, not even the devil.
Our feelings might be different a year from now
But you are part of me forever somehow.

A part of me will always be you
and a part of you will always be me.
no matter what happens ,that much is certain
our souls are one until life closes the curtain.

I will love you forever
For worse or for better.

You are tattooed in my heart
And nothing can tear our souls apart.

I will never forget you
For my love is honest and true.

I/You-We/Us

Seasons come in calm and fury

Not knowing towards but hold us, Love

Waver not in belief for I shall not drift

Hold us for we shall not fail,

What is us,

What is ours,

Years may stain, don’t let that burden you

Our hearts and arms shall house this belief:

“This love we have is unreserved devotion

To keep who we are

To keep what is us,

To keep what is ours,”

Life may abate but hearts will soar,

Death will come eventually calling, but, 

Remember where you walk I will follow

Always and forever will hold us, Love
