There may be days when you get up in the morning and things aren't the way you had hoped they would be,
....that's when you have to tellyourself that things will get better.
There are times when people disappoint you and let you down,
but those are the times when you must remind yourself to trust your own judgments and opinions, to keep your life focused on believing in yourself and all that you are capable of.There will be challenges to face and changes to make in your life,and it is up to you to accept them.Constantly keep yourself headed in the right direction for you. It may not be easy at times, but in those times of struggle you will find a stronger sense of who you are, So when the days come that are filled with frustrationand unexpected responsibilities,remember to believe in yourself and all you want your life to be, because the challenges and changes will only help you to find the goals that you know are meant to come true for you.
Keep believing in yourself.

Have you ever thought of Angels
Watching over you at night?
Have you asked for their protection
At the early morning light?
Have you heard a word of caution
FaIling softly on your ear?
Or in times of sudden danger,
Have you sensed them drawing near?
Have you almost heard their footsteps
At the closing of the day,
When your heart communed with Jesus
And your burdens slipped away?
Though unseen, they're always ready
To respond to God's command --
Messengers come down from Heaven,
Sent to lead us by the hand.

If nobody smiled and nobody cheered
and nobody helped us along;
If every man looked after himself
and good things all went to the strong;
If nobody cared just a little for you,
and nobody thought about me
And we all stood alone in the battle of life,
what a dreary old world this would be!
Life is sweet because of the friends we've made.
All things in common we share.
We want to live on, not because of ourselves,
but because of the people who care.
It's giving and doing for somebody else -
on that all life's splendor depends;
And the joy of the world when you sum it all up,
is formed in the making of friends.
I prayed to the Master, for Wisdom Divine.
He said understanding, will open your mind.
The key you have with you, is all faith, trust, and love.
In your inner self, and your God above.
The Golden Rule, our Maker bestowed.
On all of His children, has always been told.
Your own mind is your business, and should be first hand.
If you can control it, then, you've mastered God's plan.
May peace and contentment, be your constant companion.
I see it,I feel it,
I hurt for you.
But I must tell you, dear friend,
I believe with all my heart
that you will emerge somehow wiser, stronger,
and more aware.
Hold on to that thought,
tuck it away in a
corner of your heart
until the hurt melts enough
for the learning to have
When you're criticizing others And are finding here and there
A fault or two to speak of Or a weakness you can't bear.
When you're blaming someone's weakness Or accusing some of self...
It's time that you went out To walk around yourself.
There are lots of human failures In the average of us all.
And lots of grave shortcomings In the short ones and the tall.
But when we think of evils Men should lay upon the shelves,
It's time we all went out To take a walk around ourselves.
We need so often in this life This balancing of scales.
This seeing how much in us wins And how much in us fails.
But before you judge another Just to lay him on the shelf
It would be a splendid plan To take a walk around yourself.
