Many will admit that they’ve found themselves at the place where they were certain they couldn’t go on for one more day, one more hour, one more minute. The pressures of life, consistent troubles and hardships convinced them that it would be better to stop right there than to try to persist. Then, the next minute came, the next hour, the next day and they found themselves pressing forward. Bottom line: The strength that got you up and moving when you were sure you no longer could, is the same strength that will take you to bigger and better things – to your destiny – if you would be courageous and determined enough to continue the course.
Be careful who you decide to disrespect and dishonor. For the same person you turn away, ignore and think less of could be the very one God had sent to be your greatest blessing. Respect all, dishonor none because some opportunities come only once.

If you cannot uplift someone, don’t risk the repercussions attached to trying to bring them down. Malicious behavior always finds its way back to you in one form or the other. If you examine yourself and acknowledge your own short-comings, you would not have the mindset or heart to judge what you deem to be the missteps of another.
The simplest solution to the problems the world faces in a nutshell is love. Love that is genuine in nature consisting of compassion, sensitivity to the feelings and plight of others, a willingness to make another person’s life better: the only kind there really is. There is no other kind of true love. Love is absent of greed, maliciousness, callousness, insensitivity, selfishness. If only love was practiced in the true sense of the word, our human existence would be one of harmony and peace in spite of our many differences. The problem is that everyone is looking at everyone else to make a change when each person should really be looking inside of himself and let the change begin there.
Don’t get used to mediocrity. You are more valuable and more capable than you think. Think better thoughts, dream bigger dreams and you may be surprised at how far from mediocre you truly are.
No one on earth is promised tomorrow. Live today as stress-free and drama-free as possible. Strive to fill each day with peace and love with all sincerity. When you’ve arrived at the end of the road, you’ll see that nothing else really matters. Hopefully in life you would have given much good, so that in death only good will come to you.
It’s much easier to give up than to press on. But how easy would it be to live with yourself not knowing what you might have achieved if you didn’t take the easy way out? During the struggle along the rugged journey of life, the best motivation is to keep your eyes on the prize.
While you’re busy treating others carelessly or maliciously, particularly the ones you’re supposed to care for and love, just keep this one thing in mind: Even if there comes a time when they actually forgive you, you may be left with only a “shell” of a relationship – if any at all. Forgiveness may be found in the human heart, but the memory of the treatment still lingers to some degree in the mind. A wise person knows this and is careful to conduct himself accordingly.
If this is you: “I try so hard, but sometimes I just want to give up.” Don’t! Every day is not the same. Tomorrow holds great possibilities. The truth is: We don’t know when things will get better, but rest assured that whatever the circumstance, it is subject to change. An easy life was never promised to anyone. Hold on. You are stronger than you think.
