Words and Wisdom...Part 2

In response to my previous blog on April 17th - Words and Wisdom - I received quite a few responses via Facebook and wanted to share them.

"You've gotta' dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth.
(And speak from the heart to be heard.)”
-William W. Purkey - author and college professo

Surround yourself with positive people that do their best. It keeps you on your toes and inspires you to do the same. -Kathy

Don't be lazy or expect anything to be handed to you. Do the work. Often the only way to get things done is to do it yourself. Keep at it - sometimes it takes a while to get where you need to be! All things that you can personally attest to. -KPW

Live, love and laugh ALOT. Life is way too short ,so don't sweat the small stuff and always follow your dream. -Tricia

We have to teach our children that they have the power to become whatever they want in life and that they are worthy if only just because they were born. If every High school had assemblies like the one that I went to there would be a lot less bullying, hatred, crime, etc.... Some children get a lot of positive reinforcment at home but some children do not get any. The answer is simple for me - Be kind to everyone you meet because you never know what their life is like and maybe you can make a difference in their day. Emily

Life is like a tapestry…weave with your thoughts and actions every day! Enjoy every moment! -Maureen

If you believe...you can achieve anything. Always follow your heart and believe in yourself! -Margaret

Follow your heart and always do the right thing. –Theresa

They will ask you "How can I become a famous writer and make a fortune?" I encourage kids to write, write, write-and especially-to "write what they know." I encourage them to start with school papers, zines, anything like that. I tell them to persevere. You could give them an example-like J.K. Rowling...of how hard it was for her to get started. But-I would (and do, always) tell them that just because someone can write a sentence, it doesn't mean "they are a writer." -Cynthia

Carpe diem. Always seize the day. Writers, write. Singers, sing. Try to like what you do, and do what you like. I guess to impart a sense of wanderlust and creativity in your career/life. –Mara

Remember the five simple rules to be happy!

1. Free your heart from hatred – Forgive.
2. Free your mind from worries – Most never happen.
3. Live simple and appreciate what you have.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less from people but more from yourself.  

Thank you friends! I am grateful! -Mona
