What is life if, full of care.........

Life is not about keeping score.  It’s not about how many friends you have or even how accepted you are.  It’s not about the plans you have this weekend or if you don’t.  It is not about who you are dating, who you use to date, how many you have dated, or if you have a date at all. It is not about who you have kissed.

It is not about who  your family is or how much money they have or what ind of car you drive.  It is not about where you went to school or what school you attend.  It is not about how beautiful or ugly you are.

It is not about the clothes you wear, what shoes you have on, or what kind of music you listen to.  It is not about if your hair  is blonde, red, black, brown, or if you skin is too light or too dark.

Life is not about what grades you get, how smart you are, how smart everybody else thinks you are.

Life is not about what kinds of places you hang out or your sport.

It is not about representing your whole being on a piece of paper and seeing who will accept what you write.

What is life?

Life is about who you love

and who you hurt.

It is about who you make happy or unhappy.

Life is about trust and building friendships ~ one at a time.

Life is about keeping your promises and not making judgements.

It’s about who you have ignored with full control or intention.  It’s about giving up on jealousy, fear, ignorance, and revenge.  It’s all about Forgiveness.

Life is about learning to love each person as they are for who they are and helping them grow.

Life is about the choices you make and I hope you make the Right Ones

because you only have today to live, why not live it loving everyone!
