“If I’m alone too long I think too much, and I’m not interested in doing that. That won’t lead anywhere good, I’m sure.”  (Lisa Marie Presley).

“Don’t ever be reluctant
to show your feelings
when you’re happy, give in to it…
When you’re not, live with it.

Don’t ever be afraid to try to
make things better
you might be surprised at the results.

Don’t ever take the weight of the world
on your shoulders.

Don’t ever feel threatened by the future
take life one day at a time.

Don’t ever feel guilty about the past
what’s done is done.
Learn from any mistakes you might have made.

Don’t ever feel that you are alone
there is always somebody there
for you to reach out to.

Don’t ever forget that you can achieve
so many of the things you can imagine.
It’s not as hard as it seems.

Don’t ever stop loving
Don’t ever stop believing,
Don’t ever stop Dreaming your Dreams.” Unknown

Choose what kind of day you have

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all that my parents didn’t give me when I was growing up, or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can embark upon a quest of being friendly.

Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout with joy because I have been given the power to “create” wealth.

Today I can murmur because I have to do housework, or I can feel honored because I have a shelter for my mind,body and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor who gets to do the shaping.

What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have! Have a great day… unless you have other plans. Ernest Murray- Editor of the Lufkin Texas Daily News.


When I say I want to be alone, I keep finding that I’m not really alone. Allah is always there. And Allah always send me people to cheer up my days. Alhamdulillah.
