HAVE FAITH IN YOURSELF
It is not easy
Live life sometimes,
And face the world with a smile.

It takes a lot of courage
To reach down inside yourself
Hold on to that strength

And know that tomorrow
Is a new day -
With new possibilities
But if you can
just hold on
Long enough to see this through,
You'll come out a new person -
With more understanding,
And with a new pride in yourself
From knowing you made it.

We can live a day at a time,
enjoying the present
and always seeking to become
a more loving and better person.
Take Things at a Time.

Hugging is healthy.
It helps the immune system, cures depression,

It's invigorating, rejuvenating, and has no unpleasant side effects.

Hugging is good medicine.
It transfers energy, and gives the person hugged an emotional boost.
Hugging feel good and warms, overcomes fear,

maintenance, and twelve for growth.
will win this battle
And emerge better and stringer than ever.
Fight pain and self-doubt
With prayer and humor
Reach out and accept the love and support
Of your family and friends
Know that you will overcome this obstacle
As you have all others.
There are some roads in life
That we must travel alone,
Even though we may be
Surrounded by people whom we love.
Some things in life,
Such as what you're feeling now,
Can't be felt by anyone but you.
But just remember
You are not alone at all;
Everyone who loves you
Is waking with you in spirit,
And will be there with you.
You're find a new strength,
A new peace and a new happiness.
It just takes a little time.
is a learning process
about learning to love
and valve yourself enough to stop destroying yourself.
It's about learning to change your mind and your heart.
It's about forgiving yourself and others.
It's about letting go of shame and learning to accept your true self.
Recovery is about letting go of the lofty expectation of perfection
that you have placed upon yourself and others.
It's learning to love and accept yourself and others unconditionally.
Recovery is about learning to use your anger
as the fuel to create something good,
rather than denying it or holding it inside until you self-destruct
or strike out at another.
Recovery is about learning that you have a choice:
You can choose to be hopeful rather than hopeless;
you can choose to act from faith rather than react from fear;
and you can choose to enjoy life rather than merely survive it.
Acceptance means that you
Can find the serenity within
to let go of the past
with its mistakes and regrets,
move into the future
with a new perspective,
and appreciate the opportunity
to take a second chance.
Acceptance means you'll find
When difficult times come
Into your life,
And comfort to relieve any pain.
You'll find new dreams, fresh hopes,
And forgiveness of the heart.
Acceptance does not mean
That you will always be perfect.
It simply means that
You'll always overcome imperfection.
Acceptance is the road to peace-
Letting go of the worst,
Holding on to the best,
And finding the hope inside
That continues throughout life.
Is the heart's best defense,
Love's greatest asset,
And the easiest way
To keep believing
In yourself and others.
to Let Something Go
and Begin Again
in our lives
That we find hard to accept.
Thoughts come back to trouble us
and time again.
When something happens in our lives
that we find difficult to accept,
We must decide if there is anything
we can do to change things.
If there is, we must do
What we can to make things right again.
But if we have done all we can,
And we know in our hearts that there
Is nothing more we can do about it now,
Then we should let go of
Whatever is troubling us.
After going over all the
"What ifs" and "whys,"
we may learn a valuable lesson.
And we find that even though
It was painful,
We grew through the experience.
Just learning to let things go,
Rather than worrying about
What might have been,
Might eventually be worth even more
Than whatever it is we had to let go of.
There are times
in every life when we feel hurt or alone
But I believe that these times when we feel lost
and all around us seems to be falling apart are really bridges of growth.
We struggle and try to recapture the security of what was,
but almost in spite of ourselves,
we emerge on the other side with a new understanding,
a new awareness, a new strength.
It is almost as though we must go through the pain
and the struggle in order to grow and reach new heights.
Sometimes it seems like the world
Is crumbling around us
And we just can't go on.
But those are the times when
We most need to look to the future,
To hold on to our faith and hope
And to each other.
One of the hardest
things to accept
Is the realization that things that make no sense
To us now
May never make any sense,
but life will go on anyway -
with no explanations or apologies,
and that we somehow survive
the changes thrust upon us.
We even manage
But noting grows without rain,
So when it begins to pour,
Let it flow.
And when the storm has passed,
Let it go.
Be kind to yourself;
Ask for what you need.
You are not alone.
I am finally
seeing life in an entirely new way -
The clouds are dispersing, the sky is now blue and no longer gray.
A type of re-births completely foreign to me,
has made my mind clearer now and I feel free.
Life has so much to offer us all,
but sometimes we don't see it until after we fall.
So many unforeseen problems and stresses arise -
Take a break from the confusion, look up and gaze at the sky.
For so many years I gave of myself,
always leaving my needs and feelings tucked away on a shelf.
Life is there for me and for you..
It has not been reserved for a chosen few!
I am learning that what life has to offer, can be mine!
If I play my cards right I will attain them in time.
Life provides us with happiness and joy -
Don't abuse it, or lose it or play with it as if it were a toy.
For one day it will be gone,
and you will never again hear life's sweet song!
No man can make you happy,
if you are unhappy with yourself.
Trying to make men responsible for how we feel is self-defeating.
That responsibility belongs to us.
Everyone has the responsibility to make herself emotionally healthy,
before they get involved with another person.
If you believe a man can provide what you lack emotionally,
you may be grossly disappointed.
Stop looking for men to support you in ways you are not supporting yourself.
Learn to care for yourself physically,
financially and emotionally.
Your man will enhance what you already are and what you already have.
IS LETTING GO OF FEAR
The 12 lessons
to bring about a personal transformation are:
ALL THAT I GIVE, I GIVE TO MYSELF
FORGIVENESS IS THE KEY TO HAPPINESS
I AM NEVER UPSET FOR THE REASON HAT I THINK
I AM DETERMINED TO SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY
I CAN ESCAPE FROM THE WORLD I SEE BY GIVING UP ATTACK THOUGHTS
I AM NOT THE VICTIM OF THE WORLD I SEE
THIS INSTANT IS THE ONLY TIME THERE IS
TODAY I WILL JUDGE NOTHING THAT OCCURS
THE PAST IS OVER, IT CAN TOUCH ME NOT
I COULD SEE PEACE INSTEAD OF THIS
I CAN ELECT TO CHANGE ALL THOUGHTS THAT HURT
I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT I SEE
ARE ALL LIMITLESS
this sense of total freedom
it is important for us to detach ourselves from past-future
pre occupations and choose to live in the NOW.
To be free also means not being confined
to the reality that seems limited by our physical senses.
To be free allows us to participate in the love we share with everyone.
We cannot be free until we discipline and to retrain our minds.
While many of us want love, many of us seem unable to experience it.
Our guilty fears from the past block our ability to give
and receive love in the present.
Fear and love can never be experienced at the same time.
It is always our choice as to which of these emotions we want.
By choosing love more consistently than fear,
we can change the quality and nature of our relationships.
Things In Life
Too often we
what we have until it is gone;
Too often we wait too late to say
"I'm sorry -- I was wrong."
seems we hurt the ones
we hold dearest to our hearts;
And we allow foolish things to tear our lives apart.
Far too many
times we let
unimportant things into our minds;
And then it's usually too late
to see what made us blind.
So be sure that
you let people know
how much they mean to you;
Take that time to say the words
before your time is through.
Be sure that
everything you've got
And be thankful for the Little Things
in Life that mean a lot.

and you wind
Up somewhere you didn't plan on being, maybe
It's time to stop and rest, read some good books,
regroup, and stop trying so hard. Do
Some things you may not have taken the time
To do for yourself before. Take time to study;
All of us need to be constantly growing in Wisdom.
Feed your soul by being quiet, by just being rather than doing.

You're going to deal with this.
You're going to uncover some things about yourself even you
Didn't know. You're going to find strength you
Didn't know you had and grace to handle
Whatever comes along.
Just remember that everything changes, so it's
Just a matter of time until this trial will be
Over and you will draw strength from the
Knowledge that even though life handed you a
Challenge, you survived; you carried on

I Had My Life to Live Over
I would have
talked less and listened more.
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained,
or the sofa faded.
I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass
I would have shared more of the responsibility carried by my husband.
I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth
would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.
Stop sweating the small stuff.
Don't worry about who doesn't like you,
who has more, or who's doing what. Instead,
let's cherish the relationships we have with those who do love us.
I would hug more people, and hold more hands.
something do you know that?
And in spite of whatever may happen in your day,
you are going to stay that way:
trying and giving and living life in the best way you know how.
So keep your spirits up, and keep things in perspective.
It's going to be okay.

Right. And you always land on your feet.

The First Step on the Road to
Recovery is Always
the Most Important One
The first few
steps you take on any journey
won't get you where you want to go.
But without those first steps and the many more that follow,
you would where you are, looking towards the future
and wondering what it would really be like to see your world the way
you always dreamed it could be.
One of the greatest lessons in life is the one you learn
about moving forward and taking steps to reach your goals.
Life rewards those who are willing to be involved in it...
and take chances.
Take your chance and take those first few steps,
because a better life is just waiting for you.
At times you may expect the answers to come quickly,
but try to be patient; some answers may take a sometime to be revealed
Admitting our weaknesses is the bravest thing we can do.
Because with that admission, we drop our shield of pretense,
find the courage to face reality, and reach out for the help we need.
Although the first step on the road to recovery is not always an easy
but recovery offers you a new chance to learn to love yourself,
your family, and life.
It takes time to get adjusted to a new way of living
and to learn to enjoy the peacefulness that recovery offers.
There will be times when you will feel anxious,
and that's normal.
But you deserve to live in love and happiness,
and there is no greater gift you could give yourself.
I forgive myself
totally and completely.
As I forgive, I am forgiven. As I forgive others, I forgive myself
I forgive myself for past errors.
I am now willing to forgive myself and others for hurting me.
As I forgive, I see the Truth.
I am now willing to forgive my mother, father, partner.
I now release, renounce, forgive and free my past.
I freely forgive you, I let you go.
It is done, finished forever.
All that has offended me. I forgive.
Whatever has made me bitter, resentful, unhappy, I forgive,
within and without I forgive,
things past, things present, things future, I forgive.
I forgive everything, everyone, every experience,
and every memory of the past or the present that needs forgiveness.
God's love is now adjusting my life, realising this, I abide in peace.
There are only
two emotions- love and a cry for help!
Thirteen Ways to Increase Your Self-Esteem
Confidence stays on the inside and builds from there. So whenever you
want to accomplish something, picture yourself already there. See yourself
successful; make it real in your mind. Close your eyes and fill in all
the details--how it would feel, how you would behave, how others would
behave in response. Then put what you see into action. As you think, so
REACH OUT TO OTHERS
Say nice things to other people. Make a list of the things you would like
and appreciate in others. Lend a helping hand when you can. By helping
others, we feel more in control of our own lives.
Perfectionism paralyzes you and keeps you from accomplishing your goals.
TAKE CARE OF YOUR PHYSICAL APPEARANCE
Your physical appearance is a critical factor in your self-esteem. Resist
the urge to get sloppy on days when you feel bad. In fact, those are the
days when you should take extra care to look your best.
GET IN TOUCH WITH YOUR OWN CREATIVE ENERGY
Get regular exercise; when you can use your body effectively, you feel
more in control. Listen to music, commune with nature, meditate. As you
do these things, let thoughts come and go. Daydream and center yourself.
What were your passions as a child? What do you fantasize about now?
List 50 reasons why you can respect yourself. If you get stuck, think
of people who admire you or have admired you, and write down what they
would say about you.
LOOK FOR A SILVER LINING
When you're going through tough times, find a strength or piece of knowledge
(knowledge is power, you know) that you would not otherwise have were
it not this particular trauma.
ACT IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR OWN VALUES
Sometimes values conflict. In that case, practice role playing with a
friend and explore the various consequences of each action. Then choose
what feels best for you.
BE GOOD TO YOURSELF ON A DAILY BASIS
Do something that makes you feel good--something that's just for you--every
Take a course. travel to a new place--it's easier to try out new facets
of your personality when you are away from the familiar. As you meet new
challenges, you gain new confidence and enhance your sense of accomplishment.
Dispute your pessimistic beliefs. Think of misfortunes as temporary and
specific instead of permanent and general. For example, "All managers
are jerks" is permanent and pervasive, a view that can lead to feeling
hopeless about a particular problem you've encountered. "He was in
a bad mood this morning" is an explanation that takes the temporary/specific
viewpoint. It allows hope for improvement.
DON'T TAKE THINGS SO PERSONALLY
When somebody behaves in a manner that you find rude or abrasive, that
tells you something about that person and how he or she is feeling at
the moment. Try to see the pain or fear the other person is experiencing
and tackle it from that perspective.
DON'T TAKE THINGS SO SERIOUSLY
See the humorous side of life's everyday calamities. When you can see
both the serious and humorous side of a given situation, your perspective
and your approach will be more balanced. So lighten up. You'll bounce
back from disappointments and embarrassing moments more quickly, and more
people will like you better, too.
Practice these positive measures to reinforce your own belief in your
self worth and increase your self-esteem. Then you'll have the master
key to you own success.

Only You Know What Is Best for
You cannot listen
to what others want you to do.
You must listen to yourself.
Society, family, friends do not know what
you must do.
Only you know and only you
can do what is right for you .
So start right now.
You will need to work very hard.
You will need to overcome many obstacles.
You will need to go against the better
judgment of many people and you will need
to bypass their prejudices.
But you can have whatever you want
if you try hard enough.
So start right now and
you will live
a life designed
by you and
for you and you will
love your life.
to Always Remember... and One Thing never to forget...
is a PRESENT to the world.
You're unique and ONE of a kind.
Your life can be what YOU want it to be.
Take the days-just ONE at a time.
Count your BLESSINGS, not your troubles.
You'll make it through WHATEVER comes along.
Within YOU are so many answers.
Understand, have COURAGE,
Don't put limits on YOURSELF.
So many dreams are WAITING to be realized.
Decisions are too IMPORTANT to leave to chance.
REACH for your peak, your goal, and your prize.
Nothing WASTES more energy than worrying.
The longer one carries a problem, the HEAVIER it gets.
Don't take things TOO seriously.
Live a life of SERENITY,
not a life of regrets.
Remember that a little love goes a LONG way.
Remember that a lot . . . goes FOREVER.
Remember that FRIENDSHIP is a wise investment.
Life's treasures are PEOPLE . . . TOGETHER!
Realize that it's NEVER to late.
Do ordinary things in EXTRAORDINARY ways.
Have HEALTH and HOPE and HAPPINESS.
Take the time to WISH upon a star.
And don't EVER forget . . . For EVEN a day . . . HOW VERY SPECIAL YOU
I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me, is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, than education, than money,
than circumstances, than failures, than success,
than what other people think or say or do.
It is more than appearance, giftedness, or skill.
It will make or break a company... a church... a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude
we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will
act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the
one string we have, and that is our attitude...
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react
And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes."
Be thankful that you don't
already have everything you desire.
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?
Be thankful when you don't know something,
for it gives you the opportunity to learn.
Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.
Be thankful for your limitations,
because they give you opportunities for improvement.
Be thankful for each new challenge,
because it will build your strength and character.
Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons.
Be thankful when you're tired and weary,
because it means you've made a effort.
It's easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who
are also thankful for the setbacks
Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles,
and they can become your blessings.
that you cannot make someone love you.
All you can do is be someone who can be loved.
The rest is up to them.
that no matter how much I care,
some people just don't care back.
that you should always leave loved ones
with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.
that we are responsible for what we do,
no matter how we feel.
that either you control your attitude
or it controls you.
that learning to forgive takes practice.
that there are people who love you dearly,
but just don't know how to show it.
that sometimes when I'm angry
I have the right to be angry,
but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
that just because someone doesn't love you
the way you want them to
doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.
that no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.
that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
that no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn't stop for your grief.
that just because two people argue,
it doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
it doesn't mean they do.
that two people can look at the exact same thing
and see something totally different.
that even when you think you have no more to give,
when a friend cries out to you,
you will find the strength to help.
Live Your Life
The past is
gone, but Now is Forever.
The future does not lie in our hands,
But the future lies in the hands of the Presents.
Go out and grasp the seconds of the day
As if you had only that day to live
Experience and enjoy the moments of your life.
We only have one life to live,
So live it like a champion.
Everyone was put here for a purpose,
So let that purpose rise up above and show
Every what you're made of.
I'm not telling you how you should live,
But how you should feel when you look back
at the memories of a once-upon life of yours.
Don't regret things later.
If you feel it is right, do it.
It's your life and nobody else's.
Make decisions that please you.
Let nobody put you down.
Don't live in anybody's shadows or dreams.
If you do have a dream, act on it
And it will probably come true.
Our life is
a journey, we've often been told.
With our future ahead, not sure what it will hold.
This uncertainty seems to breed skepticism and fear.
As we search for answers and want things to be clear.
Life is a journey that we must vigorously embrace.
Enabling us to deal with the opportunities
and challenges we face.
So you see my friend,
walls that we build to protect us from others.
May actually keep us from
getting to know our sisters and brothers
Our family, our friends and even ourselves.
Because our dreams and desires
have become dormant on shelves.
To learn, to grow, and to understand,
each of us must learn to REACH OUT.
Even when our lives seem so complicated
and embedded in doubt.
REACH OUT to those around you who show
that they care.
Despite what you think at times
those people are there.
Break down the walls that we all hide behind.
Take some chances,
get involved and to others be kind.
Spend time with
family and friends
and build a foundation.
Because caring is what will help strengthen
our struggling nation.
There is no
as many people want to believe.
It's up to each of us to pursue the things
that we want to achieve.
So rather than
let us build bridges each day.
It will help us look at life's journeys
and challenges in a whole new way!
REACH OUT! !
