THE SAME CHANCE TOMORROW

These are thoughts I have been having
For some time now...
And I would like to share them with you
Before life in this world gets too crazy,
And tomorrow never comes.


I have come to realise many things
Since I connected to the Internet,
In that we get to meet people
We never would have met
In any other way.

We get to know these people,
Not by their looks or by their touch,
But by their heart and soul.

If we had met any of these people on the street,
We may not have given them a second glance.
Or, maybe we would have looked at them and said,
"Hey, look how fat that person is,"
or "Hey look, there's a gay guy"
or even "Hey look, there's a person of color."

We could have done this
And never have known
This real person on the inside.
This is a very sad thing.

I have come to meet many people on the internet
Who have truly touched my heart in many ways.
They have made me a much better person.
Wouldn't it be something
If the whole world could be touched like this?
To get to know each other in ways
They would never have thought possible?
I believe if they did,
There would be no war,
No homeless or hungry people.

This also applies to the people we already know.
Don't make assumptions.
Don't be judgmental.
And don't let pride get in the way of love.
We should stop to think how it would be tomorrow
If we lost that person,
And we didn't have the chance
To say we were sorry.

So, the next time you pass someone....anyone....
Think about this.
This person could be one of your Internet
acquaintances...
One of those people you would love to meet.
One of those people who have a knack
For making your day,
Or for bringing some warmth and friendship
Into your life.

One of those who've helped you along the way,
And you'd like to repay the favor
In some small way.

Just turn to that person and give them a smile...
A warm hello.
And soon this will catch on,
And soon we all will be smiling.

Because if we don't,
Then the same chance tomorrow
May never come.

Money only makes life easier to enjoy - Kyle

"The larger the island of knowledge, the larger the shoreline of wonder.." -Ralph W. Sockman


He who is afraid to ask is ashamed of learning.

Intelligence is like wearing underwear, everybody should have it but we don't show if off.

The beautiful thing about learning is that no-one can take it away from you.

Beauty isn't worth thinking about; what's important is your mind. You don't want a fifty-dollar haircut on a fifty-cent head.

If your mind isn't open, keep your mouth shut too.

A pay rise is like a martini: it elevates the spirit but only temporarily.

Politics is a bit a like washing windows. No matter what side you're on, the dirt is always on the other side!

If you are lavishly praised, enjoy the taste But don't swallow it whole.

If someone says, "I know what I mean, but I just can't put it into words," he doesn't know what he means.

Don't waste your time trying to be own best friend. You can't pat yourself on the back, and it's unsatisfying to cry on your own shoulder. Find a friend instead…

"Good habits are just as hard to break as bad ones."

"Modesty is the proof that morality is sexy"

Before you can win, you have to believe you are worthy.

Like fire, money itself is neither good nor evil. It is neutral, its character determined by the eye of the perceiver, the hand of the user.

Without friends, you're like a book nobody bothers to pick up."

Practice doesn't make perfect, nor is it supposed to. Practice is about increasing your repertoire of ways to recover from your mistakes.

The only person who listens to both sides of an argument is the fellow in the next apartment.

Real communication happens when people feel safe.

If you believe in your heart that you are right, you must fight with all your might to do it your way. Only dead fish swim with the stream all the time.
