Chapter 8, Page 26, Book 15


Forget about the days
when it's been cloudy,
but don't forget your
hours in the sun.

Forget about the times
you've been defeated,
but don't forget the
victories you've won.

Forget about the mistakes
that you can't change now,
but don't forget the lessons.

Forget about the misfortunes
you've encountered,
but don't forget the
times your luck has turned.

Forget about the days
when you've been lonely,
but don't forget the friendly
smiles you've seen....

Forget about the plans
that didn't seem
to work out right,
but don't forget to
always have a dream.

August 26th - Lessons from the heart

What most people need to learn in life is how to love people and use things, instead of using people and loving things. 


Life's biggest lessons aren't learned all at once. They are taught and learned time and time again over years and years. Lessons of the heart are strange. They’re really fragile and hard to explain, but here are just a few lessons that real love teaches us.

The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.

 Eden Ahbez

Love means letting go of expectations.  True love has no expectations. It simply loves as is.  Love forgives and allows other people’s actions to be their journey. Love doesn’t take things personally

 Life lesson from the nursery: Broken crayons can still color.

Love allows people their freedom. It doesn’t hold tightly and crush their wings in attempt to keep them. True love doesn’t want to possess. It is willing to set you free if you want to be.  Love is the absence of fear.

Just like the seasons there are reasons for the path we take, there are no mistakes, just lessons to be learned.

Barbara Streisand

Love is an action, not just a feeling. Show the person you love them. Don’t just assume they know.  Love is unconditional. True love really does love without trying to change the other person.

Love teaches us to care for one another, because that's the only way that we can make it in life

Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I liked that poem with what to forget; we sometimes need that reminder. That is so true too about love means letting go of expectations. We need to remember especially with our children that they are their own people and might make decisions we might not make, but we should love and encourage them as they live their lives like we had the chance to live ours.
