“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.
I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.
I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.
I’ve learned that making a living is not the same thing as making a life.
I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.
I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.
I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one.
I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

-Maya Angelou-

  1. I’ve learned that forgiveness is not forgetfullness, and those two should not be confused.

    I’ve learned that love for someone else doesn’t conquer all, in fact, it’s love for yourself that conquers all.

    I’ve learned that most times, if not all times, I ask for help – and really need it – I get it. I just need to learn to ask.

    I’ve learned the power of that old saying “let go and let God.” I always thought it was crap, but there really is something to it.

  2. Some very wise lessons about your harshest critic and the way we most learn to love ourselves.

    I learned sometimes it isn’t how well you do something that matters, it is that act of doing it that counts.

    (This was taught to me by Tinkerbell while carving pumpkins and creating gingerbread houses).

  3. ive learnt what Shel Silver stein once said.

    “Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”
