Friday Frills



If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart. 

Sometimes things happen to you, and at the time they may seem horrible, painful and unfair; But in reflection you will realize that without overcoming those obstacles, you never would have realized your potential strength, willpower or heart. 

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck. 
Let yourself fall in love again, break free, set your sights high and try something new. 
Hold your head up because you have every right to. 

Learn to trust your own instincts and have faith in all you can be. 
And always remember: You are braver than you believe,
Stronger than you seem and smarter than you think.

Lilli said...

Hello Sam! Thanks for this reminder, seriously I needed to read these words right now. I deeply believe that things dont happen by chance or for luck, instead I think there is always a reason and that we always have the control of how turning things in our life, since the only owner of it is ourselves first. I also believe that we need not only happy moments but also the hardest ones because is from them that we could really know our person and the great inner potential we already have in ourselves. People will always disappoint us, it is impossible to avoid, but is possible learning the lesson from all the experiences we face, because at the end we are braver, stonger and smarter than we believe :) (as Winnie the Pooh also said!:P) Happy Friday my dear! xo

Denise Sabs said...

Dear Sam, you know I love your Friday Frills, cause they give me some confidence to go on! Your Friday Frills now stated exactly what I have NOT been thinking of me lately... I may be kind of strong, kind of brave, but definitely not a smart chick. And you know what? It's OK. I have seen and done a lot, and it's Ok to feel or to be stupid after all. Not a horrible feeling, believe me! More like zen, I would say! Hope you are OK!!!! denisesplanet com

Very positive these quotes. I really like the first one although I feel it is a little bit difficult to forgive those who hurt us. I ´ll try to put in practice( I don´t know if this is the correct expression) Kisses, Sam:) Nice weekend, my friend.

Ashley Phillips said...

So true! Like the saying goes, kill them with kindness. And things may happen now and we not understand it but as time past we will be able to look back and see that things do happen for a reason and we aren't given anything that we cant make it out of on top!
Have a great weekend dear!

Dressed with soul said...

Hi dearest Sam, this is exactly what I believe: that the bad behaviour of our fellow men helps us to develop us and the drama wouldn´t have been happen if it would not have been necessary that I have to learn something! I think we arrenged the unpleasant situation long times ago between our souls - as you mention accoring to my opinion - to strenghten and develop our own personality!

Many thanks for sharing this important fact <3 Wish you a happy weekend!
