FOOD FOR THOUGHT

My friend, Mari, sent me this and I thought it was so nice that I decided to put it here.

 MAYBE

Maybe … we were supposed to meet the wrong people before meeting

the right one so that, when we finally meet the right person, we will

know how to be grateful for that gift.

Maybe … when the door of happiness closes, another opens; but, often

times, we look so long at the closed door that we don’t even see the new

one which has been opened for us.

Maybe … it is true that we don’t know what we have until we lose

it, but it is also true that we don’t know what we have been missing

until it arrives.

Maybe … the happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of

everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their

way.

Maybe … the brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past;

after all, you can’t go on successfully in life until you let go of your

past mistakes, failures, and heartaches.

Maybe … you should dream what you want to dream; go where you want

to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one

chance to do all the things you dream of, and want to do.

Maybe … there are moments in life when you miss someone — a

parent, a spouse, a friend, a child, your girlfriend/boyfriend — so

much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them

for real, so that once they are around you appreciate them more.

Maybe … the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and

swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the

best conversation you’ve ever had.

Maybe you should always try to put yourself in others’ shoes. If you

feel that something could hurt you, it probably will hurt the other

person, too.

Maybe … you should do something nice for someone every single day,

even if it is simply to leave them alone.

Maybe … giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they

will love you back. Don’t expect love in return; just wait for it to

grow in their heart; but if it doesn’t, be content that it grew in

yours.

Maybe … happiness waits for all those who cry, all those who hurt, all

those who have searched, and all those who have tried, for only they can

appreciate the importance of all the people who have touched their

lives.

Maybe … you shouldn’t go for looks; they can deceive; don’t go for

wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile,

because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the

one who makes your heart smile.

Maybe you should hope for enough happiness to make you sweet, enough

trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough

hope to make you happy.

Maybe you should try to live your life to the fullest because when you

were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling, but when

you die, you can be the one who is smiling and everyone around you is

crying.
