Overcoming obstacles with Optimism

Sometimes in life we are knocked down so far we may never think we’ll be able to stand again.  Sometimes in life we think we have forgotten who we are and begin to question who we may become.  Never forget, life is a journey.  Work hard.  Enjoy every moment.  And, most important, always leave what we pass by a little better than how we found it.

 

“You aren’t born as yourself.  You’re born facing a mass of possibilities, a mass of other people’s ideas and perceptions-and you have to mold a ‘self’ by working through those raw materials.”  V.S. Vaipaul

 

“Animals can learn, but it is not by learning that they become dogs, cats, or horses. Only man has to learn to become what he is supposed to be.”  Eric Hoffer

 

 “I asked for strength and God gave me difficulties to make me strong.

I asked for wisdom and God gave me problems to solve.

I asked for prosperity and God gave me brawn and brain to work.

I asked for courage and God gave me dangers to overcome.

I asked for patience God placed me in situations where I was forced to wait.

I asked for love and God gave me troubled people to help.

I asked for favors and God gave me opportunities.

I asked for everything so I could enjoy life. Instead, He gave me life so I could enjoy everything.

I received nothing I wanted. I received everything I needed.

My prayer has been answered.”
