    There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go. Dont miss out on a great relationship because you want to hold on to a relationship that will never work. Don't miss out on a great opportunity because you are scared to let go of a position that leaves you with nothing more than being stable or secure. Be fearless in your resolve, learn to let go!

    Whatever I am writing here is the lessons I learnt from my experience in life.

    Sometimes we have to make our own decisions. There will be many to give us advises instead of refusing to take their advise , we can listen to them and do what we feel is right. Sometimes we have bad experiences in life. Because of some incident everyone becomes against us. Sometimes we feel that you those who do bad are living happily and we have done so much good but still we are suffering. We should always learn to control our emotions. Nothing is constant and life changes from time to time

    Love is what makes life worthwhile. It makes the prettiest roses even more pretty; it makes the sweetest honey even sweeter. Love is a grand and beautiful thing.

    In life we meet people who give us so much love that we forget everything . Blessed are those who are married to a loving family and get all the love from there. Blessed are those who come across good friends and they become part of their life. As long as they are there we enjoy their love and affection but when time comes for them to depart we are not able to forget them but life is like that people cant be always with us .

    No matter how good or bad you think life is, wake up each day and be thankful for life. Someone somewhere else is fighting to survive.

    We have to be always thankful to God for the life he has given us. We should make our life meaningful and not worry about what happened in the past but try to live the present in a worthy manner. So that tomorrow we have not to regret for anything. We may not have the best but must be thankful to God for whatever we have. We have to be thankful for even the little things we are experiencing in life
    .
    We have to live life in a way that children follow our footsteps . We dont realise that they are watching our every step.

    Children Learn What They Live’ – Dorothy Law Neite

    If a child lives with criticism, he learns to condemn.
    If a child lives with hostility, he learns to fight.
    If a child lives with ridicule, he learns to be shy.
    If a child learns to feel shame, he learns to feel guilty.
    If a child lives with tolerance, he learns to be patient.
    If a child lives with encouragement he learns confidence.
    If a child lives with praise, he learns to appreciate.
    If a child lives with fairness, he learns justice.
    If a child lives with security, he learns to have faith.
    If a child lives with approval, he learns to like himself.
    If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he learns to find love in the world.

    I have realised everyone has their own set of rights and wrong.What might be right for me could be wrong for someone else...
    So when i take decisions in my life i make sure they are MY decisions and so that later on i dont regret for taking those decisions.
    Being fearless comes at its own risk in life....my experience says so.

    I liked "children learn what they live" by Dorothy Law Neite.
    Thanks for sharing it vijima.
