Friday Frills

In life there are people that will hurt us and cause us pain, 
but we must learn to forgive and forget and not hold grudges. 

In life there are mistakes we will make, 
but we must learn from our wrongs and grow from them.  

In life there are regrets we will have to live with, 
but we must learn to leave the past behind and realize it is something we can't change. 

In life there are people we will lose forever, sometimes by choice, 
but we must learn to let go and move on. 

In life there are going to be obstacles that will cause interference, 
but we must learn to overcome these challenges and grow stronger.  

In life there are fears that will hold us back from what we want, 
but we must learn to fight them with the courage from within.

In life the best way to succeed is to
Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.

It doesn't help you when you hold things in. They just fester. It's taken me awhile to do this though. HaHaHa

Laia herrero said...

Wise words Sam, things like this make your blog different than any other fashion blog.
We learn from everything painful but we hace to face it and grow up stronger.
Kisses and have a great weekend!

This reminds me of something we talked about in Psychology today actually...there are different personality types, and Type C is actually the type that will keep a smile pasted on but on the inside they're festering over whatever's been dealt to them. These are the types more likely to develop cancer! So the saying about keeping things inside will make them rot and poison you is true in a sense!

Morning Sam! My week is going fine, except for a bad stiffneck lol, thanks a lot for asking dear! Hope yours is going well too! I have read your words with very attention, they are always a good reminder for me:) I think the key is the acceptance of the facts: what is just happened cant be changed but what we have done wrong can be always improved looking forward to the future with optimism and a good attitude with everyone. This to not have regrets then and always know to have done the best with what we can, have a are in life! The bad things of out past are lessons learned we should keep in mind to avoid the same mistakes:) Happy Friday my friend, hugs!:*

Fashion-Bridge said...

The first thing which took my breath away was the stunning, flawless photo! I could look days long at it (I also pinned it to my pinterest:) but then I read the words...and they are even more beautiful and truthful that the photo is.
Have a wonderful weekend dear Sam!



S said...

Great advices, we often lost a lot of time mumbling or holding grudge on passed things!
It's totally useless!
Love the pic!

miss b said...

What a dreamy photo! Learning to forgive and forget and not bear grudges is very good advice! Today I read a quote which I remember from some time ago. 'Don't look back. You're not going that way' which echoes I think the sentiment in your quote.

Elsha said...

This is such a beautiful post. Sometimes it is hard to remember that we ALL make mistakes and we ALL have heartache that we experience.

Very beautiful words, they are so true, and I loved the last part - how many times we give ourselves excuses "I can't do this because I don't have the right things with me now, because I'm not in the right place", etc... and s, I loved it "do what you can, with what you have, where you are!" Thanks for that, such an inspiring post as usual!

Virginia said...

So beautiful and motivating!

Thank you for taking the time and stopping by!
I think you are one of the rare people who haven't read Harry Potter :)
I have to admit it's been quite a while since I read all of the books and I cannot really remember what exactly the first ones were like, but what I remember is that I liked them! More than the movies.
So, yes, I'd recommend them, but you should start with the first book, otherwise I doubt you are going to understand all of the others.

I also wish you a great week!
