The Happiest of People

Every once in a while, a friend sends something along that resonates.

Maybe it’s the holiday season. Maybe it’s global warming. Who knows? It’s true that we don’t know, or says the story below.

I’m sharing the following with you here in the form of inspiration and gratitude mixed with some food for thought. I don’t know who the author is or who compiled these thoughts. If you know, pass it along (when I find out, I’ll update and credit them). I’m simply sharing the message with you here, and for the most part, as it was sent to me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

HappiestofPeopleWe never get what we want. We never want what we get; we never have what we like; we never like what we have. And still, we live & love. That’s life…

The best kind of friend

is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, Never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.

It’s true that we don’t know

what we’ve got until it’s gone, But it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been missing until it arrives.

Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they’ll love you back!

Don’t expect love in return; Just wait for it to grow in their heart, but if it doesn’t, be content it grew in yours.

It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,

An hour to like someone and a day to love someone, but it takes a lifetime to forget someone.

Don’t go for looks; they can deceive.

Don’t go for wealth; even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile!

May you have

enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy.

Always put yourself in others’ shoes.

If you feel that it hurts you, it probably hurts the other person, too.

The happiest of people

don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

Happiness lies for

those who cry, those who hurt, those who have searched, and those who have tried, For only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives.

When you were born, you were crying

and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you’re the one who is smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Please send this message

to those people who mean something to you, to those who have touched your life in one way or another, to those who make you smile when you really need it, to those who make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down, to those who you want to know that you appreciate their friendship.

And if you don’t, don’t worry.

Nothing bad will happen to you. You will miss out on the opportunity to brighten someone’s life with this message…
