Valuable Words

I received an email yesterday with some pretty good life lessons...

DON'T HURT ANYONE!
"It only takes a few seconds to hurt people you love, and it can take years to heal."

LIVE TODAY!
"There are two eternities that can really break you down. Yesterday and Tomorrow. One is gone and the other doesn't exist...so live today."

MARRIAGE!
"Do not marry a person that you know that you can live with; only marry someone that you cannot live without."

MONEY!
"Money can buy everything but happiness."

TRUST!
"It takes years to build trust and a few seconds to destroy it."

VALUE!
"What is most valuable is not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life."

I haven't been here in a while. Caught up on some posts.

Life has been interesting lately.

But it is all good because He is good.

Some thoughts...

DON'T HURT ANYONE!
"It only takes a few seconds to hurt people you love, and it can take years to heal."

I would add, heal someone... a little kindness, especially the unexpected sort, goes a long ways in healing folks.


LIVE TODAY!
"There are two eternities that can really break you down. Yesterday and Tomorrow. One is gone and the other doesn't exist...so live today."

I have discovered recently that though I so wish to change the past, I cannot... and though I am so eager the future be something I wish for... it depends on others and I have no control over them... All I have is what I do, myself, and that is only right now, this moment, today.

MARRIAGE!
"Do not marry a person that you know that you can live with; only marry someone that you cannot live without."

This is the harder lesson.


MONEY!
"Money can buy everything but happiness."
-yeah...

TRUST!
"It takes years to build trust and a few seconds to destroy it."

I don't know if it can be repaired.


VALUE!
"What is most valuable is not what you have in your life, but who you have in your life."

...especially those in your heart.


All these comments seem obvious... and therefore don't carry a lot of meaning to those who aren't struggling with the big issues they represent.

And for those who are learning these lessons, it is an internal change that is humbling.

Bottom line... be kind... be gentle... be brave...
