If only we believe


To believe is to know that everyday is a new beginning

It is to trust that miracles do happen and dreams really do come true

To believe is to see angels dancing among the clouds

To believe is to know the true value of a nurturing heart the innocence

Of a Child's eyes and the beauty of an aging hand. For it is though their teachings we learn to love.

To believe is to find the strength and courage that lies within us

When it is time to pick up the pieces and begin again

To believe is to know we are not alone that life is a gift and this is our time to cherish it.

To believe is to know that wonderful surprises are just waiting to happen

And our hopes and dreams are within reach,

If only we believe!

What Life is All About

Life is not about keeping score.
It's not about how many friends you have.
Or how accepted you are.

Not about if you have plans this weekend or if you are alone.
It is not about whom your dating, who you used to date,
or how many people you've dated, or if you have not been with anyone at all.
It is not about whom you have kissed. It's not about sex.

It is not about whom your family is or how much money they have,
or what kind of car you drive, or where you are sent to school.
It's not about how beautiful or ugly you are, or what clothes you wear,
what shoes you have on, or what kind of music you listen to.
It's not about if your hair is blonde, red, black, or brown.
Or if your skin is too light or too dark.

Not about what grades you get, how smart you are,
how smart everybody else thinks you are,
or how smart standardized tests say you are.
It's not about what clubs you are in or how good you are at "your" sport.

It's not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper
and seeing you will "accept the written you"
But, life is about whom you love and who you hurt.
It's about whom you make happy or unhappy purposefully.
It's about keeping or betraying trust.
It's about friendship, used as a sanctity or a weapon.
It's about what you say and mean, maybe hurtful, maybe heartening.

About starting rumours and contributing to petty gossip.
It's about what judgments you pass and why.
And who your judgments are spread to.
It's about whom you've ignored with full control and intention.
It's about envy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.
It's about carrying inner hate and love, letting it grow, and spreading it.

But most of all, it's about using your life to touch or poison other people's hearts
in such a way that could have never occurred alone.

Only you choose the way those hearts are affected,
and those choices are what life's all about.

Regret most of us come across this a few times in life, “I wish I would have done that”, “or if only”, but as we all know we cannot turn back time.

“Where is that magic clock?”


Don’t worry about what as past you by, we are human and make many mistakes in life, we learn by our mistakes some of us repeating the same mistake until we get it right and we will. This will make us stronger and more able to adapt to the human way of life. Try varying a standard routine, just for the sake of change - a change is as good as a rest! Instead of doing the things you've always done just because you've always done them, question them. Are they really the best, or is there a better option. Just by taking control and actually thinking more about what we do, we can improve our lives so much.


Once we look back and see the lessons we have learned in life, no matter how small they seem to be. This will give us some strength to carry on in life with a positive attitude and let those negative feelings go, always remember what’s done is done and never can be altered. So no amount of worrying will make it better, or make you feel better for that matter!

We all have an in built ability to sense danger whether it is for ourselves or someone else, learning to use it at the right times in our lives is the hardest part, listen to that voice or feeling and use it in your future.

Inspirational verse helps us to realise, that other people have felt the same way as we do. The power in those words helps us to smile.

Mandela in inauguration speech 1994


Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure

It is our light not our darkness

That most frightens us

We ask ourselves

Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?

Actually who are we not to be?

You are a child of god

(This can be any god)

You’re playing doesn’t serve the world

There is nothing alighted about shrinking

So that people won’t feel insecure around you.

We are all meant to shine, as children do.

And we light our shine

We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same

As we are liberated from our own fear,

Our presence automatically liberates others.

                                                   Quoted by President Nelson

Each of us knows all we need

We need only to open our minds to our own





"You cannot teach a man anything,

you can only help him find it within himself"
~ Galileo ~

Eyes can't see what the soul can feel.
