how blah i've been feeling lately.... This should probably be taped to your bathroom mirror where you could read it everyday. You may not realize it, but it's 100% true. 1. There are at least two people in this world that you would die for. 2. At least 15 people in this world that love you in some way. 3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you. 4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don't like you. 5. Every night, someone thinks about you before they go to sleep. 6. You mean the world to someone. 7. You are special and unique. 8. Someone that you don't even know exists loves you. 9. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it. 10. When you think the world has turned its back on you take another look. 11. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks And always remember....when life hands you Lemons, ask for tequila and salt and call me over!

Thank you for sharing, it made me smile too and it has so much profound meaning to it and it will help me to deal with the bad days and by reading this, it will give me a booster!

I know it helped me today- when things get bad and I will read this it will remind me that I have to stop being selfish and wallowing in self pity!

hey thanks so much for that. Know how you feel when you talk about feeling blah - lots going on in my life just now, awaiting back surgery, family bereavememts, fighting depression, kids driving me crazy... You're right we should all read and remember this and maybe we'd start to believe it and feel better about ourselves! Thanks again!!!

hope that the sun starts to shine a little brighter for you and that you can feel a little bit more peace in yourself! If you ever need to talk let me know - sometimes all you need is someone who knows where you are coming from to listen and be patient with you!

Well it's 6.00pm here, so I could have a gin, but the problem is I'm so damned tired it would probably finish me off completely - LOL! The new job contract is very interesting, but such long hours, and hard work:-(( I am in the office at 6.30am every morning, and it's really taking it's toll. I'm so glad it's only for another 6 weeks! So just hang in there girl, and tomorrow will come soon enough!!

Perfect and Inspirational! I even liked the lemon part.. Except I also don't drink tequila.. I'd change that part! How ture this is though-- This would be something good to read when you're feeling down! I just read an e-mail about waking up and choosing your mood-- I kept waiting for the funny part- but it wasn't funny.. Kinda like this- Different topic-- Ever seen the e-mail that floats around with the: I Believe--- and several sayings- I think one is It's taken me a long time to be this person I am That you can keep going long after you think you can't.. Would love to see that whole thing again- Sorry for the off topic!

Thanks for sharing this. It's something for us all to think about and remember. I have also had a case of "blah" lately. I think it's just the end of the winter/waiting for spring blahs. It always helps to look on the brighter side of things when you feel that everything is going wrong. I'll be sure to invite you over for cocktails the next time... I especially like #11, though. We too often dwell on the negative, rude things that people say and allow then to break our spirit for the day, when it would be so much easier and more pleasant to remember nice comments and compliments.

Interesting. There are many such small things which we ignore in our daily life and thereby fails to enjoy life as our creator desire.

I've been sent this via email from a very good friend of mine a few times and it never fails to bring a smile to my face and a tear to my eye. Few people really know how true these sentences are. Even fewer get the true meaning behind them.
