What I've Learned

I've learned that if someone says something unkind about me, 
I must live so that no one will believe it. 

I've learned that you can make some one's day 
by simply sending them a little note. 

I've learned that the greater a person's sense of guilt, 
the greater his or her needs to cast blame on others. 

I've learned that no matter what happens, 
or how bad it seems today, life does go on, 
and it will be better tomorrow. 

I've learned that motel mattresses are better 
on the side away from the phone. 

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a man 
by the way he handles these three things, 
a rainy day, lost luggage, 
and tangled Christmas tree lights. 

I've learned that regardless of your relationship 
with your parents, you'll miss them when 
they're gone from your life. 

I've learned that making a "living" 
is not the same thing as making a "life". 

I've learned that life sometimes gives 
you a second chance. 

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life 
with a catcher's mitt on both hands. 
You need to be able to throw something back. 

I've learned that if you pursue happiness, it will elude you. 
But if you focus on your family, the needs of others, 
your work, meeting new people, and doing the 
very best you can, happiness will find you. 

I've learned that whenever I decide something with kindness, 
I usually make the right decision. 

I've learned that even when I have pains, 
I don't have to be one. 

I've learned that every day you should reach out 
and touch someone. People love human touches -- 
holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. 

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. 

I've learned that you should pass this on 
to someone you care about. 
Sometimes they just need a little something 
to make them smile.
