For 2017

Maybe

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 -- 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 that
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
crying.

I thought this was kind of pretty and makes you think that sometimes things happen to you in life or you get a much different answer than you thought you would or should get - yet it turns out to be a great answer after all.

I want to thank all my Blogger friends for such wonderful support!

Love,

I have often pondered the very first statement on your post. I believe it to be very true.

There are so many true, deep, and valuable remarks in your post, enough to guide a life by, I do believe.

I like the one about dreaming what you want and then doing it.
