Remember These Words
Don't let go of hope.
Hope gives you the strength to keep
going when you feel like giving up.
Don't ever quit believing in yourself.
As long as you believe you can,
you will have a reason for trying.
Don't let anyone hold your
happiness in their hands;
hold it in yours, so it will always
be within you reach.
Don't measure success or failure by
material wealth, but by how you feel;
our feelings determine the richness
of our lives.
Don't let bad moments overcome you;
be patient, and they will pass.
Don't hesitate to reach out for help;
we all need it from time to time.
Don't run away from love but towards
love, because it is our deepest joy.
Don't wait for what you want to come to
you; go after it with all that you are,
knowing that life will meet you halfway.
Don't feel like you've lost when plans
and dreams fall short of your hopes.
Anytime you learn something new about
yourself or about life, you have progressed.
Don't do anything that takes away from
your self-respect; feeling good about
yourself is essential to feeling good
Don't ever forget how to laugh or be
too proud to cry.
It is by doing both that we live
life to its fullest.
