You Are Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile

I find that sometimes things happen that take our breath away either in a good way or in a bad way. We can have the wind knocked out from us by something happening that is so destructive that our lives will never be the same again, or something so good. so … beautiful, so wondrous that it changes our lives forever. These changes all have to be met so that you can adapt to the changes. I would say easily, but they are not always easy, in fact some may seem impossible, but impossible says “I’m Possible” There is always a way. Always

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it
Life is beauty, admire it
Life is a dream, realise it
Life is a challenge, meet it
Life is a duty, complete it
Life is a game, play it
Life is a promise, fulfill it
Life is sorrow, overcome it
Life is a song, sing it
Life is a struggle, accept it
Life is a tragedy, confront it
Life is an adventure, dare it
Life is luck, dare it
Life is too precious, do not destroy it
Mother Teresa

    • Thanks Sylvia. That one made me think about some photos that I have, and the fact that I don’t talk to some of the people because they changed so much.

      • Actually Al, the entire post very much spoke to me because just a few days ago I was shaken to my foundation by the extreme reaction of a friend (whom I had considered to be very close), immediately worrying that maybe I really had crossed a line. She totally misunderstood something I had written (she was the only one, BTW) and as a result, she was willing to break off our relationship. It took me a day to recover from the shock and realize that SHE was the one having a problem, and that I hadn’t done anything wrong. So the timing of your self-esteem-boosting post couldn’t have been better!

        • It is awful when that happens, but if she was the only one, then it shows that the problem was not yours, as if it was, then more people would have been. It could be that they will come back and apologise.

          I am glad that my post was timely then. Thank you

  1. This is a great massage, Alastair.
    I love Mother Teresa’s writings are full of wisdom.
    Quotes also very well chosen.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Have a wonderful evening, Alastair! 🙂

    • “The impossible can be made possible, but miracles take a little longer” Thank you Vishal 🙂 I hope to be able to start properly visiting blogs again this week

  3. Al, this post is such distilled wisdom, full of spirits that bring joy to my heart. What a blessing for my day. I would love to reblog, it gave me such a lift. Is that okay?
