“Each one of us has different strengths … This does not make you weak. This make you special and unique.”
Christine E. Szymanski.
I have had a few challenges lately and found my self slipping into wondering what tio do. Thankfully the feelings has not lasted. So I may have some hurdles ahead but if I can’t jump over them I will crawl under them or walk around them and get done what needs to be done.
Here is a reminder that what happens is up to us.
Steps to happiness
You can’t be all things to all people.
You can’t do all things at once.
You can’t do all things equally well.
You can’t do all things better than everyone else.
Your humanity is showing just like everyone else’s.
You have to find out who you are, and be that.
You have to decide what comes first, and do that.
You have to discover your strengths, and use them.
You have to learn not to compete with others,
Because no one else is in the contest of being you.
You will have learned to accept your own uniqueness.
You will have learned to set priorities and make decisions.
You will have learned to live with your limitations.
You will have learned to give yourself the respect that is due.
And you’ll be a most vital mortal.
Dare To Believe
That you are a wonderful, unique person.
That you are a once-in-all-history event.
That it’s more than a right, it’s your duty, to be who you are.
That life is not a problem to solve, but a gift to cherish.
And you’ll be able to stay one up on what used to get you down.
“Each one of us is special … what you are capable of might be unimaginable for someone else.”
Dr. Prem Jagyasi.
Heard at the senior center:
My supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.
My secrets are safe with my friends because they can’t remember them either.
“If you listen when you hear and look when you see then you will never be deaf or blind to an opportunity.”
She said: “I’ve got 3 TVs, cable, & a satellite dish; I have 3 phone lines in the house, a cell phone & one in the car, plus a pager. I use 2 computers, 3 ISPs and a fax. I subscribe to two daily papers & one weekly one. I watch both the local & network news every evening. And my kids have the nerve to tell me I’m out of touch!”
“If you were arrested for being kind……..would there be enough evidence to convict you?”
The banker had called the man in to talk about his account. “Your financial affairs are in a big mess! Your wife constantly overdraws your account. She is behind in her charge accounts at the department store, and her check stubs are all added wrong. So…why don’t you talk to her about it?”
“Because….” said the man, “I would rather argue with you than with her.”
“Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain — and most fools do.”
She said: I pulled into a crowded parking lot and rolled down the car windows to make sure my golden retriever had fresh air. She was stretched out on the back seat, and I wanted to impress upon her that she must remain there.
I walked to the curb backward, pointing my finger at the car and saying emphatically, “Now you stay….. Do you hear me?… Stay!.. Stay!”
The driver of a nearby car, perhaps noting that I am a blonde, gave me a strange look and said. “Why don’t you just put it in park?”
You must arrange in advance for pleasant memories.
The customer in the Italian restaurant was so pleased that he asked to speak to the chef. The owner proudly led him into the kitchen and introduced him to the chef.
“Your veal parmigiana was superb,” the customer said. “I just spent a month in Italy, and yours is better than any I ever had over there.”
“Naturally,” the chef said. “Over there, they use domestic cheese. Ours is imported.”
“Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.”
