I have been searching for something special to reflect on and Kelsey had posted just what I was looking for! (I am not sure where she found it, but I found the following on her blog!)
1.) I've Learned-
that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.
2.) I've learned-
that no matter how much I care, some people just don't care back.
3.) I've learned-
that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.
4.) I've learned-
that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
5.) I've learned-
that it's not what you have in your life but who you have in your life that counts.
5.) I've learned-
that you should never ruin an apology with an excuse.
6.) I've learned-
that you can get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you'd better know something.
7.) I've learned-
that you shouldn't compare yourself to the best others can do.
8.) I've learned-
that you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
9.) I've learned-
that it's taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
10.) I've learned-
that you should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
11.) I've learned-
that you can keep going long after you can't.
12.) I've learned-
that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.
13.) I've learned-
that either you control your attitude or it controls you.
14.) I've learned-
that regardless of how hot and steamy a relationship is at first, the passion fades and there had better be something else to take its place.
15.) I've learned-
that heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.
16.) I've learned-
that money is a lousy way of keeping score.
17.) I've learned-
that my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
18.) I've learned-
that sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down will be the ones to help you get back up.
19.) I've learned-
that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
20.) I've learned-
that people will forget what you said, and people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.Of course I have not learned all of these things, but they are definitely things I should learn. It will take time and strength to learn them, so I figure I will reflect on each one every now and then! I will post "Reflections" under my banner and link up the posts! Feel free to reflect as well, as they come up!!
