Mother Teresa's "ANYWAY"

Mother Teresa's "ANYWAY"

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;
Give the world the best you've got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Just felt the need to share this epic poem!!!

We dream for a reason. Dreams are meant to be lived.

I couldn't say this any better. Its perfect.

Thank God for the good days!!

Today i saw some quotes that sparked something epic inside of me.
My friend Marsha had this as her Facebook status.
"Growing up i had many insecurities about myself. Most times maturity comes with age. I've learnt to love and appreciate myself as i become older and more independent. I'm embracing all the flaws as well as my assets. Love and appreciate yourself unconditionally because no one else will."

 And i was reminded that i had this up on Sept 30th 2010.
"I believe in and stand for freedom of expression, doing what you love, and going after your dreams. I often tell people that "I'm too stupid to know what impossible is". It simply does'nt exist to me. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true."

I couldn't agree more and this is exactly how i woke up feeling today. It was one of those mornings. I felt i should get up and start living, really living and not just merely existing.

It felt like today should be the day the big "IT" begins, it, as in my life. I keep seeing these inspirations quotes and saying everywhere i turn and i keep having these strange but realistic dreams. Yes i think the universe is trying to tell me something.

Its like the pieces are ready to come together.
Its the second day of September. That's it Summer is over. I loved and will miss the summer but i'm ready for whatever the rest of the year has in store. It also happens to be my favourite time of year now. Sept to January is a magical time. Still not sure why, it could be because it gets much cooler, the days get shorter and we all know how i love those long nights. I come alive at night. Its weird. I don't care much for the daylight and i'm a horrible bitch in the mornings.
Everything always feels slower and calm. I'm always way more relaxed. Its awesome i can already feel it.

I'm not sure about you but i find that the universe has a way of building me up to let me down and its never in a gentle manner. Most of the time when i get to my highest, and feel on top of the world something always goes wrong to of course remind me that that nothing lasts forever and that most of the time, whatever seems too good to be true usually IS!!
But you know what!!!! This time i think i've learnt my lessons. I plan to stay grounded and not allow the positivity get to my head. I always do that. So i figure that its when you lose your head up your ass that the universe plus that higher being feels the need to drag your ass back to ground level / reality and make you acknowledge their presence.
So hopefully by remembering to be thankful and humble the powers in charge will refrain  from fucking me over to teach me a lesson.

I know i wont feel this amazing everyday obviously its not possible. Its me, i'm bound to have days when the world tries to tear me apart. But i welcome them. Challenge accepted.
I'm pretty sure ill overcome and appreciate the days like today even more.

I'm happy and in a great state of mind for the coming season. And no thanks to my little yellow pills. Its all me and all natural.
Life is too short. Its no secret, we all know. But today its even more clear and its scary. I'm ready to let go of all the negative energy and ready to forget all the bad things i've been trough this year. I love this feeling i'm experiencing now and the person i'm becoming!!

Road to enlightenment  and a better me >>> maturity and inner peace >> I'm ready!!  #LETS GO!!

Only losers live in their past.

Denis Waitley said Losers live in the past. Winners learn from the past and enjoy working in the present towards the future.

How many times has it happened where you unfortunately get stuck listening to some old geezer relive their "amazing" past.
Wellllll for me its been too many times. I have no clue why people almost always feel the need to tell me random shit when its obvious that i would rather spend the time kicking my own teeth in than listening to them yammer on about their good old glory days.

If you're someone who does this, you're lame and i hate you. The truth is, most people who feel the need to bore others with their past are pathetic and unhappy with their present. Yes you know what im talking about, those people who were cool back in the day, living the dream and such, but let it get too much to their heads and of course didnt plan for the future and are now social rejects.

Nobody cares how cool you were back then because you're far from cool now. I honestly dont even have pitty for people like you. Im not sorry  for you. Your future not being as bright as your past is more than likely all your fault so live with it.
And you know whats funny. I find that they always tend to complain about all the people they helped in the past who dont even acknowledge their existence at this point in time. Welll gee i guess being on cloud nine made you fucking blind to the fact that nothing lasts forever, that people are fake and will fucking use you then kick you as soon as your ass is down.

I cant understand why they always hit on girls that are presently way out of their league too, then talk shit and complain when they got shot down. Really homeboy! Really! Wake the fuck up! & stop hating on the so called "hot girls" of today for not being the least bit interested. && No, they are not fake, materialistic bitches who will be sorry. And even if they are get over it. You're just mad because you no longer have what it takes to attract them. You're a loser!!!
Stop living in the past and try to make the best of your present. Life is what you make it. Maybe you can salvage whats left of yours.

The above is the reason why i dont agree with the saying "live everyday like its your last". Thats never an idea to be taken too literal except for those of you who happen to have some sort of incurable disease. Its easier to live one day at a time but with a realistic plan for the future. That way you wont end up being an annoying has been.

Live in the moment. It is but all you have.

Im very sad to say that i had to attend a funeral last Saturday. One that i would have never expected to have attended anytime soon. The thought had never ever crossed my mind but then again these things hardly ever do unless the person is sick. Long story short, he was someone that i grew up with and loved dearly. His death came as a total surprise. I hate funerals. I dont go to them unless i was very close to the person so this one i went to with no hesitations. I just couldn't forgive myself if i didnt.

Death and funerals, as much as i hate them, i appreciate them. They remind me of how short life is.
And now all i can think about is the phrase "Carpe Diem".

"Carpe Diem"  comes from a poem, written by the legendary latin poet Horace and is often transulated as seize the day. In the poem it is part of a longer phrase "Carpe Diem, Quam minimum credula postero". It means Seize the day, putting as little trust as possible in the future.

All its basically saying is that the future is promised to none of us. Life is short and most of us go through it thinking that we'll live forever. So we spend our time, effort and money, with careful considerations and the future in mind.
And as a result we often put so many important things off. Decisions, trips, whatever we think can wait. Too many times there is so much we leave unsaid with the assumption that we have another year, month, day or even a tommorrow not realizing that all we have is right now.

I know what your about to say and yes Iv heard this speech before and have said the same things to my self over and over. I know it isnt an easy thing to do. There are so many reasons why we cant, we all have responsibilities.
And of course we fear the risk of failure, which is what constantly keeps us from reaching our true and full potential. We spend way to much time saying what if or wishing we were brave enough to take chances and ultimately end up missing out on the shots we dont take.
But we need to realise that life is too short to allow our concerns and fears to weigh us down, most of all the unnecessary ones. We must find someway to create a balance that will allow us to live responsibly while still enjoying life to the fullest while we have it.

There's a popular saying  "Dont ever save anything for a special occassion. Being alive is a special occasion."
Most of us dont realise this untill some form of tradegy rocks our worlds. For me it was losing a loved one. 

I dont know about you but i intend to start living in the moment, doing what i love and fully embracing life no matter what my situation or circumstance.
And i sincerely hope you will do the same.

HelloO Im back and with a BANG!

Did u guys miss me and my blogs or what? Assuming you did let me just say I'M BACK!!!!!! :)
OK so I know that i have been absent for some months now. Almost 4 i think. Pretty sure you guys missed me cuz ummm i would miss me. lol & on that note I missed you too.

I just want to take the time apologise for my absence but i've been sick and hence needed a break from eveything and almost everyone. As you all know i'm manic depressive and therefore i need a break sometimes.
I have a mild disorder and am okay (to some extent) most of the time so Its usually only after severe events which cause me to hit rock bottom that i shut down the way i have during these past months.

Something tragic happened.... Actually it was more like a string of unfortunate events and it was too much to bare. Which is all i will say for now But don't you worry i will share the details about my stint as a recluse with you at some point in time but right now i just want you to know that I'M BACK!!
So stay tuned, say goodbye to boredom and prepare to be entertained.       
                                                     Love Sue xoxo
