Make sure the people in your life know how much you value them. Be slow to anger and quick to forgive. Give them love and support, not judgement and criticism. Keep your heart open and let them love you back. Make memories of happiness and joy. Look to tomorrow with anticipation, not fear. Look forward to good times coming your way instead of dreading the trials you have to endure. Take care of your body and your spirit, so that you have the ability to live with joy and peace. And have peace, in knowing that this world is temporary, there is so much more out there that we can't see with our eyes ~ and it is good.... you'll just have to trust me on that for now...
