One day your life will flash before your eyes,
make sure it's worth watching.
Everyone tries to impress
that special someone, but
if you can't get them by
just being yourself they can't
be all that special.
If you don't like someone, the
way he hold his spoon will make
you furious. If you care about
someone, he can turn his plate
over in your lap and you won't mind.
You can close your eyes
to things you don't want to see.
But you can't close your heart
to things you don't want to feel.
It turns out sometimes you
have to do the wrong thing.
Sometimes you have to make a big mistake
to figure out how to make things right.
Mistakes are painful but they're the only
way to find out who you really are.
Over the course of the average lifetime
you meet a lot of people. Some of them
stick with you through thick and thin.
Some weave their way through your life
and disappear forever. But once in a
while someone comes along who earns a
permanent place in your heart.
Always look at what's left.
Never look at what you have lost.
It isn't the size of the gift that matters,
but the size of the heart that gives it.
