Dont hate roses because you got scratched with one thorn Dont give up on your dreams because one did'nt come true Dont give up on your efforts because one of them failed Don't condemn your friends because one betrayed you Don't stop believing in love because someone did not love you back Don't stop trusting friends because someone was unfaithful to you Don't throw away your chances to be happy because you failed in the first attempt Don't loose faith in prayers because one was not answered LOOK AROUND DEAR FRIENDS There at the end of the road there are New dreams New goals New friends A new love And God waiting for you to answer all your prayers

Everytime we are down we have to only cry out to Jesus and he lifts us up again.

Yes I believe in each and every word that I have written. I think it is because of this positive approach that I have been able to get along in life inspite of so many problems. Both my positive approach and the friends that I have around who are always there to guide me.....both have helped me in life....

What a wonderful composition! Very meaningful and worthy of life's realities. We should always take happiness and sadness side by side. If there is no sadness of bad moments in our life, we cannot value about good and happy moments in our life. Rose is the best example of taking negative side (throns) of a situation with right spirits. If we have to enjoy the beautiful rose, we will have to bear the bite of thorns too. It is said that - "Everything comes at a price." Life is to be seen in an optimistic way to move ahead. Good Post.

dear mayka123, thx for your meaningful post. we tend to forget what you mentioned in the prose whenever we lost our temple or get disappointed.we are so easier to lose our faith.and we always forget that there is hope ahead,and the sun will still rise refreshed!

All of the things you mention happen when we look outside ourselves and forget the answers reside within each of us. God is part of you, it you just turn your mind to that fact you will feel the energy awaken.

Yes these are facts that we forget often and need to be reminded time and again. God is always waiting for us and we have to just turn around and look for him.

Good one, mayka123. And you've given one great point there. Giving up just because a little barrier is such a waste of effort. You can do many things in your life if you just don't give up so easily. Everything is so hard in the beginning but you would get the result and it would be worth your hard work. And to be honest some of the words were really slap me in the face LOL. I did some of them. I hate people and I stop believing. I know that it was wrong and I am trying to fix what was wrong with me. And your words of wisdom that you've given to me just give me more courage to do that. Thank you for so much enlightenment.
