Love that Beckons Moments in Life!

There are moments in life when you miss someone so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real.  When the door of happiness closes, another opens; but oftentimes we look so long at the closed door, that we don’t see the one which has opened for us.  Don’t go for looks; they can deceive.  Don’t go for wealth; even that fades away.  Go for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright.  Find the one that makes your heart smile.

Dream what you want to dream; go where you want to go; be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do.  May you have enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human and enough hope to make you happy.  The happiest people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes their way.  The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; you can’t go forward in life so at the end, you are the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

This New Year tell those people who mean something to you that they are special; those who have touched you life in one way or another; those who make you smile when you really need it; those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down; those who friendship you appreciate; those who are meaningful in your life.  Don’t count the years – count the memories.  Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
