Friday Frills

I will go through this life only once,
and I shall have but one chance to live.

Not all people will like me,
Some may even despise me,
as I may not be easily understood. 
Yet I will take this chance to live, 
and give the best I have to give. 

Not all days will bring me sunshine, 
So I will rejoice also for the rain;

Not every endeavor will be a success,
But I will savour the victories I achieve;

Not all dreams I dream will be mine,
But in time new dreams will fill my heart,

No fear shall trample me whatsoever,
Though some tasks seem to outweigh my spirit. 

I will only do what I have to do, 
Fueled by the power and capabilities within me, 
Played to the best of my strengths, with all of my heart... 
and God will take care of the rest.

Morning Sam! Hope your day is going well! Your words are always very inspiring to me and give me much positive energy. We always have to remind we only have one chance of life, so better to fully enjoy it from each angles and in each ways before is to late, before wake up in the morning and start to regret things you havent done, said or missed. We have to live happily, to embrace hard times with courage and optimism, to remember that not every days will be easy but the fact you are alive give you the opportunity to always change things and draw new dreams to replace the ones which are failed:) Be brave enough, trust on you,and you are able to discover the path everyone has to follow in life:) Kisses dear, happy Friday! xo

Beautifully inspiring words and I love the gorgeous image you chose too.

That bold lip color is quite amazing! It's by a Korean brand called Hera that Shin Min Ah is the spokesperson for and it's Rouge Holic color 247.

Have a lovely weekend Sam!

Yesterday I was out, so I saw the covers just today! My favorite is the red dress that Lily Collins is wearing! My favorite color and shape!
Now, these words are the ones I needed today. Not everybody will like me, many will misunderstand me... that's what I feel about my brothers. I am sure they like me, but they are always criticizing me and taking me for granted. Or even, misunderstanding me. But I will go on doing my best towards them and trying to be as strong as I can :) Great words, my dear friend, as usual!!!! denisesplanet com - because I will use google today!

Paola Lauretano said...
