Ten Rules for Being Human

by Cherie Carter-Scott

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it's yours to keep for the entire period.

2. You will learn lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called, "life."

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trial, error, and experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that ultimately "work."

4. Lessons are repeated until they are learned. A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons does not end. There's no part of life that doesn't contain its lessons. If you're alive, that means there are still lessons to be learned.

6. "There" is no better a place than "here." When your "there" has become a "here", you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here."

7. Other people are merely mirrors of you. You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you make of your life is up to you. You have all the tools and resources you need. What you do with them is up to you. The choice is yours.

9. Your answers lie within you. The answers to life's questions lie within you. All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. You will forget all this.

Yup....
in life there is always a choice...
and make sure the we choose the right path.....
And choosing the right path doesn't mean in won't hurt....
actually...all the difficulties will sure arise when you started to choose the right path...
but if we believe and hold on to what is right....
you will earn great things that you never expected.....
God bless....

Ascunde-n sufletul gingaş un univers plin de comori,
Din ochii mari poţi să culegi priviri prinse-n buchet de flori,
Cu multă linişte şi calm pe buze grafiaz-un zâmbet,
Iar glasul său armonizează blând vibraţiile unui cântec.
La tâmplele fierbinţi ea poartă doar amintiri din flori de gânduri,
Cu mâna fragedă le-aşează într-un album cu foi prinse în riduri,
La gâtul diafan cristalele de rouă stau prinse-n colier,
Pe umerii rotunzi timpul aşterne poveste de iubire şi mister.
Îmbracă astăzi rochie din verde crud de iarbă,
Privire de bărbat puţin iscoditoare trece şi se întreabă,
Cine-i această lume discretă , virtute-ncântătoare?
Este FEMEIA,MAMA, IUBITA ce azi e-n sărbătoare.
Gânduri sublime îţi trimit pictate-n fluturi diafani,
Să fii iubită, să-nfloreşti şi un suav, LA MULŢI ANI!
