Friday Frills

Don’t ever let people tell you that you aren’t good enough. 

Because you are.


Don’t ever give up your dreams, 

Because you need them.


Don’t ever compromise your morals
Because they make you who you are.

Don’t ever hide your feelings
Because someone’s willing to hear them.

Don’t ever think you’ve got it all figured out, 
Because the next moment you won’t.

Don’t ever live your life in the past,

Because then you’ll miss out on the now.

Don’t ever let people bring you down
Because they don’t deserve to.

Don’t ever be someone you aren’t
Because then you’ll never know you who really are.

Don’t ever let someone tell you how you feel
Because it’s not their right to.

Don’t ever give up something that feels right
Because it probably is.

Don’t ever worry about the petty things, 
Because they just don’t matter.

Don’t ever run away from your problems,

Because they always find you.

Don’t ever be afraid to take risks
Because they make life worth living.

Don’t ever let someone take away your happiness,
Because it was never theirs to take.

*I also want to bid a sad farewell to our late great President Nelson Mandela. 
 He changed the way the world saw our country and he brought freedom and light to a nation without hope.

Dear Sam, I am so sorry about the sad news. Tears burn my eyes when I think what person we all just lost. Nelson Mandela was not only a greatest man, he's not only changed the whole country he's changed the world and people. he was the biggest inspiration and still is. As Obama said: he doesn't belong to us any more, but he belongs to ages. Let him rest in peace!




Hi dear, it's alwasy a joy to read your inspirational Friday posts. I heard teh news of Mandela, what a great man. I am so happy to share my birthday date with him. :-) Happy Friday!

Birdie Liau said...

Really amazing post you have here good choice of words and all (: inspiring. x

Lilli said...

Morning Sam, first of all I'm so sorry for His death, he was a beautiful person and for sure the whole world will feel his absence, he really change it, we have another angel in paradise. Love your words, is actually what I need to read. We are human and so we are weak, is easy to be influenced by people or facts, often we give up our dreams or let people drag us down, we have our own head and are able to follow only what we believe is right or now. Also take some risk, because only in this way make things happens. Happy Friday my dear, big hugs! xo

Dear Sam, I thought so much of you yesterday because of Mandela. We were all very sad, but at the same time, he had a life that made a difference to the whole world. So my thoughts are with his family, the South African people and actually, everybody who really feel how important he is for the whole world.
On a personal note here, I want to apologize because I think I wrote too much and maybe, as I always tell you, I need to be inspired and not feeling down, I think I went through things that were part of my childhood and then they are here today - never let anybody tell you that you are not good enough, because you are. Wow, that was really "for me". I was told I was brilliant, but then always compared to everybody and had to surpass everyone, but that was so not me! I'm not competitive and when I had the chance to be who I am - not that brilliant at all, but much better - I did it! Your Friday Frills always trigger so much! I love them! denisesplanet com
