Reflections For A Daughter On her Birthday
I was looking through a stack of greeting cards when I came across a Hallmark greetings card that my late father, God rest his soul, gave to me for my birthday couple of years before his passing. How to Make A Beautiful Life?
The card’s title is: How To Make a beautiful Life – Reflections For A Daughter On Her Birthday
The card is a beautiful poem by an unknown poet, nevertheless, it has many meanings and a sound advice.
The Card Reads:
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.
Try. Take chances. Make mistakes.
Life can be messy and confusing, but it’s also full of surprises. The next rock in your path may be a stepping stone.
When you don’t have what you want, want what you have. Make do. That’s a well-kept secret of contentment.
There aren’t any shortcuts to tomorrow.
You have to make your own day. To know where you’re going is only part of it. You need to know where you’ve been too. And if you 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 of you.
Make a beautiful life…
The kind of life you deserve.
