As you grow up, you learn that even the one
person who wasn’t supposed to ever let you
down probably will.
You will probably have your heart broken
more than once and it may be harder every time.
You’ll fight with your best friend. You’ll
blame a new love for the things an old one did. You’ll cry because time is passing too quickly,
and you’ll eventually lose someone you love.
So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you’ve never been hurt because
every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you’ll never get back.
Birds of a Feather Flock Together
Don’t spend major time with minor people.
If there are people in your life that continually disappoint you,
break promises, stomp on your dreams, are too judgmental,
have different values and don’t have your back during difficult times…they are not your friends.
To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in life as you grow, your friends will grow or go.
Surround yourself with people who reflect your values, your goals, your interests, and your lifestyle.
Over the years my phonebook has changed because I changed for the better.
At first, you think you’re going to be alone, but after a while,
new people show up in your life that makes your life so much sweeter
and so much easier to endure.
Remember what your elders used to say, “Birds of a feather flock together.”
If you’re an eagle, don’t hang out with the chickens: Chickens Can’t Fly!
It is great if you can inspire others to grow. Don’t ever allow those others to bring you down!
