Peace is not the absence of conflict, but the ability to cope with it.
What are you warming up for?
A smile is cheer to you and me
The cost is nothing –it’s given free
It comforts the weary –gladdens the sad
Consoles those in trouble –good or bad…
Unlike most blessings for which we pray
It’s one thing we keep when we give it away.
“We think we’ll be safest tiptoeing carefully around land mines of criticism. Callings beget criticism. The thing about trying to please critics: they’re never pleased. A wise man once told me that there are people you don’t want to like you.” – Beth Moore
I have always wanted everyone to like me. I want people to feel good, not only about the day, what is going on around them, about themselves, and about me.
It’s been a hard lesson, but I have realized that I can’t always make everyone happy. Not everyone will like what you do, say, or how you act. There will be people that just don’t like you. But YOU have to like you. You have to accept the flaws, bumps, and awesomeness that you are. That’s it. It is harder than it seems, eh?
Blessings today…and always.
Who leads your life?
