    THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE WE HAVE KNOWN ARE THOSE WHO HAVE KNOW DEFEAT.
    KNOW SUFFERING, KNOW STRUGGLE, KNOW LOSS, AND HAVE FOUND THERE WAY OUT OF THE DEPTHS.THOSE PEOPLE HAVE AN APPRECIATION,A SENSITIVITY, AND AN UNDERSTANDING OF LIFE THAT FILLS THEM WITH COMPASSION, GENTLENESS,AND A DEEP LOVING CONCERN.. BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE DO NOT JUST HAPPEN, SO MAKE SURE TO KEEP THOSE PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE Very Happy

    GOD GRANT ME THE SENILITY TO FORGET THE PEOPLE I NEVER LIKE ANYWAY, THE GOOD FORTUNE TO RUN INTO THE ONE I DO, AND THE EYESIGHT TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE

    to live by choice, not by chance
    to make changes, not excuse
    to be motivated, not manipulated
    to be useful not used;
    to excel, not compete
    I choose self-esteem, not self pity
    I choose to listen to my inner voices
    not to random opinion of other.

    Elaine thanks for sharing this beautiful poem... its powerful and a great way to live and and great definition of recovery...

    Thanks

    SEEKING HELP IS NOT A SIGN OF COWARDNESS. IT IS COURAGE THAT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO ADMIT THAT SOME SITUATIONS ARE NOT MEANT TO BE HANDLED ALONE Very Happy

    BEING STRONG ISNT A LIFESTYLE, BEING STRONG IS STANDING UP FOR YOUR SELF WHEN EVERYONE ELSE IS TRYING TO PUT YOU DOWN

    10% of conflict is due to difference in opinion and 90% is due to the wrong tone of voice

    I AM TOO POSITIVE TO BE DOUBTFUL..
    TOO OPTIMISTIC TO BE FEARFUL. AND TOO DETERMINED TO BE DEFEATED..
