11 Things I've Learned (Maya Angelou)

maya_angelou.jpgI've learned:

1) no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

2) you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

3) regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

4) making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life.

5) life sometimes gives you a second chance.

6) you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things back...'

7) whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.'

8) even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.'

9) every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

10) people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

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