Live without pretending
Love without depending
Listen without defending
Speak without offending
1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return.
But what is more painful is to love someone and never
find the courage to let that person know how you feel.
2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
never meant to be and you just have to let go.
3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a
porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.
4. It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose
it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been
missing until it arrives.
5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an
hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it
takes a lifetime to forget someone.
6. Don’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
7. 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 want to do.
8. Always put yourself in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it
hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.
9. A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck
a life. A timely word may level stress. But a loving word may
heal and bless.
10. The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best
of everything they just make the most of everything that comes
along their way.
11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with
a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone
around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die,
you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.
A few days ago I listened to the song ‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen and at first I was a bit hesitant to listen to it because I had read somewhere that JB had picked her or something, and I don’t particularly like JB songs. I listened to it first without watching the official video and it was an okay song, a bit cheesy for my taste but it was okay.
Then, a few days later I was surfing YouTube when I came across the video and that’s when I actually appreciated the song. The video had carried out such a strong message to me and I hope to all of you who listened to it as well. The video to me screamed out ‘Take a Risk!’
Carly hopelessly had a crush on an extremely handsome guy and she had been drooling over him for a very long time and one day she finally decided to make her move by inviting him to listen to her song but to her dismay, she finds out that the guy was gay. Oops! He popped her fantasy bubble didn’t he? But anyways, getting back to the point, did you realize that she took a risk? She made her move but was disappointed. That’s sad but the better part was that at least she found out about him before it was too late. Imagine if she hadn’t made the move, she would have kept dreaming over him for a very long time. But now when she took the risk, she found out the truth and that is why now she can move on to someone else.
She might feel bad for a while, but later when she finds her perfect guy, she would realize that it was for the best because sometimes god doesn’t give you exactly what you want in the way you want, sometimes he gives you what he knows is best for you but in a subtle and unexpected way. But for that you have to be willing to take a risk!
Take a risk on a guy or a job opportunity or just take a risk to do something extraordinary in your day! Take that risk my fellas!
Take a chance! All life is a chance. The man who goes farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare.
