Friday Frills



Maybe...the biggest challenge in life is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else.

Maybe...you shouldn't hate the people who are jealous of you, but instead respect their jealousy - after all, they are the ones who think that you are better than them.

Maybe...the brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past. After all, you can’t go on successfully in life until you let go of your past mistakes, failures and heartaches.

Maybe...it's not where you are in life, but who you have by your side that really counts.

Maybe...you shouldn’t go for looks; they can deceive. Don’t go for wealth, even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile, because all it takes is a smile to light up the darkest day.

Maybe...you shouldn't let what you can't do interfere with what you can.

Maybe...when life is good, we should say thank you and appreciate it. And when life is grim, we should say thank you and learn from it.

Maybe...everything is beautiful, but being beautiful isn't everything.

Maybe...you shouldn't change your looks or lifestyle to please someone else, because if they truly love you, they will accept you just the way you are.

Maybe...being happy doesn't mean that everything has to be perfect. It just means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.

These are such beautiful sentiments hun. I think its something people battle with routinely: being true to yourself vs being (overly?) influenced by others? Its a tricky part of life to manouvre around. Lovely post with a really sincer message =) I like it alot ^_^

Love all the maybes!! Especially: "Maybe...you shouldn't change your looks or lifestyle to please someone else, because if they truly love you, they will accept you just the way you are."


All the best, ~Angel

I agree with this statement; Maybe...being happy doesn't mean that everything has to be perfect. It just means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections....

However, it's easier said than done... But; I guess, that's what growing up is for(;

"Maybe...the brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past."

There is so much in my past I need to let go. thanks for reminding me. Have a great weekend.

Be yourself and most importantly love yourself. Embrace your imperfection, they make us unique. Let go the past... I think these are the hardest things in life...
Wise words, I like the way you write :)
