A Beautiful Life in the Making

My Momma sent me this birthday card two years ago and I have kept it posted on my mirror in the closet and read it every couple of days. It seems to really help me get back to "me" and it gives me a sense of comfort.

How to Make A BEAUTIFUL LIFE…Reflections for a Daughter on her Birthday

Love yourself.
MAKE PEACE with who you are
And where you are at this moment in time.

Listen to your heart.
If you can’t hear what it’s saying in this noisy world,
MAKE TIME for yourself.
Enjoy your own company.
Let your mind wander among the stars.

Take chances.
Life can be messy and confusing at times,
But it’s also full of surprises.
The next rock in your path
Might be a stepping-stone.

Be happy.
When you don’t have what you want, want what you have.
That’s a well-kept secret of contentment.

There aren’t any shortcuts to tomorrow.
You have to MAKE YOUR OWN WAY.
To know where you’re going is only a part of it.
You need to know where you’ve been too.
And if you ever get lost, don’t worry.
The people who love you will find you.
Count on it.

Life isn’t days and years.
It’s what you do with time and with all the goodness and grace
That’s inside you.
The kind of life you deserve.
