life is not a race....

 i have a rather fabulous friend whom i went to college with & really don't keep in contact with very much anymore. Not that anything happened or we don't want to....but unfortunately life happens & sometimes i'm not very good at keeping in touch. Although i'm very thankful for her & her friendship...because i know.... that no matter how many days or months or years go by....that she will always be someone i call a friend....and a very dear one at that. She has seen me through some tough times & some happy times.... she is brillant & creative & most importantly one of the most beautiful people i have ever met both on the inside & out.

She wrote this on a blog on myspace forever & a day ago & little does she know its something that i read & re-read over & over again whenever i need a lil pick me up...

"Don't undermine your worth
By comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different
That makes each of us special.
Don't set goals by what other people
deem important,
Only you know what is best for you.
Don't take for granted the things
Closest to your heart,
Cling to them as you would your life,
For without them life is meaningless.
Don't let your life slip through your fingers
By living in the past or for the future.
By living your life one day at a time,
You live all the days of your life.
Don't give up when you still have
something to give.
Nothing is really over
Until the moment you stop trying.
Don't be afraid to admit that you are
less than perfect.
It is this fragile thread
That binds us to each other.
Don't be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances
That we learn how to be brave.
Don't shut love out of your life
By saying it's impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love
is to give love,
The fastest way to lose love
Is to hold it too tightly,
And the best way to keep love
Is to give it wings.
Don't dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams is to be without hope.
To be without hope is to be without purpose.
Don't run through life so fast
That you forget not only where you have been,
But also where you are going.
Life is not a race
But a journey to be savored
Each step of the way..."
