CHANCE UPON A TIME


Quote of the day:
Chance favors only the prepared mind -Louis Pasteur

I learn everyday. 
Isn't that the beauty of life-the known and the unknown? 

I'm learning to ...
Let go of the past-too many scenes to delete in that movie...
Most of life's frustrating moments can be traced to us still hanging on to the past.

Life is not a bed of roses...
but we move from strenght to strenght..
only faith moves mountains -have faith in yourself. 

I'm learning to...
Not let the sun go down on my wrath...
ahead you only see obstacles-all i see is a beautiful path. 

If life is a game...
what manner of player are you? 
he who keeps score can never really win. 

If you feel you know everything 
a little knowledge is a dangerous thing...
never stop learning-that's all there is to say.

Why walk on queer street...
when you can be on main street?
why waste time -when you can spend quality time.

Most importantly, why live other people's lives..
when you have yours to live.

  1. Another wisdom piece. So true indeed. I have come to learn all these things too. You are so good at structuring your thoughts I need to take a lesson. "Most of life's frustrating moments can be traced to us still hanging on to the past" - So so true. Everything is so it's hard to pick out a favorite. Thank you so much for sharing this.

  6. again...Blogoratti stay droppin knowledge!!! word!!! (hehehe yup betchu u didnt know i was hood huh) lol.

    def resonated wit me, esp y live other ppl's lives when u have yours to live...as human beings we sometimes find ourselves worrying about what is going on in other ppl's lives instead of tending to our own. Same goes for living vicariously thru others, if u think u can do something DO it, don't just quit cuz u think someone else can do it well.

    Lastly, u have to love your won life since at the end of the day u can't please everyone not that that should ever be the intention. Just becuz u don't go to med school to make ur parents "proud" doesnt mean u cant make yourself proud by doing you. You don't wanna live life full of regrets, becuz other ppl will defintly live theirs even at your expense.

    ok i berra stop now before i go on on...lol
