THOUGHTS & SMILES:
I Believe…
That sometimes when I’m angry I have the right to be angry,
    but that doesn’t give me the right to be cruel.
I Believe…
That maturity has more to do with the experiences you had and what
      you’ve learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.
I Believe…
That it isn’t always enough to be forgiven by others
      sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I Believe…
That our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are,
      but we are responsible for who we have become.
I Believe…
Two people can look at the same thing and see something totally different
I Believe….
That even when you think you have no more to give,
    when a friend cries out to you,  you will find the strength to help.

THOUGHTS & SMILES:
Stay blessed - Attitude makes the difference
A famous writer was in his study room. He picked up his pen and started writing:

Last year, I had a surgery and my gallbladder was removed. I had to stay in bed due to this surgery for a long time.
The same year I reached the age of 60 years and had to give up my favourite job. I had spent 30 years of my life in this publishing company.
The same year I experienced the sorrow of the death of my father.
And in the same year my son failed in his medical exam because he had a car accident. He had to stay in bed at hospital with the cast on
for several days. The destruction of car was another loss.

At the end he wrote: Alas! It was such bad year!!
When the writer's wife entered the room, she found her husband looking sad-lost in his thoughts. From behind his back she read what was written on the paper. She left the room silently and came back with another paper and placed it on the side of her husband's writing.
When the writer saw this paper, he found this written on it:

Last year I finally got rid of my gall bladder which had caused me years of pain.
I turned 60 with sound health and got retired from my job. Now I can utilize my time to write something better with more focus and peace. 
The same year my father, at the age of 95, without depending on anyone or without any critical condition met his Creator.
The same year, God blessed my son with a new life. My car was destroyed but my son stayed alive without any disability.

At the end she wrote: This year was an immense blessing of God and it passed well!!
Moral : In our daily lives we must see that it's not happiness that makes us grateful but gratefulness that makes us happy.
There is always, always, always something to be thankful for.
Stay Blessed ….
Zig Ziglar would sum this up with "It's not your aptitude, but your attitude that determines you altitude!"
