Don't let go of Hope
Hope gives you the strength to keep going when you feel like giving up

Don't ever quit believing in Yourself
As long as you believe you Can, you will have reason for Trying

Don't let anyone hold your Happiness in their Hands;
Hold it in yours, so it will always be within your Reach

Don't measure success or failure by material wealth,
But by how you Feel;
Our feelings determine the richness of our Lives

Don't let bad moments overcome You;
Be patient, and they will pass

Don't hesitate to reach out for Help;
We all need it from time to time

Don't run away from love but towards Love
Because it is your deepest Joy

Don't wait for what you want to come to You
Go after it with all that You are, knowing that Life will meet you Halfway

Don't feel like you've lost when plans and dreams fall short of your hopes
Anytime you learn something new about Yourself or about Life, you have progressed

Don't do anything that takes away from your Self-Respect
Feeling good about Yourself is essential to feeling good about Life

Don't ever forget how to Laugh
Or be too proud to Cry
Or too stubborn to Smile

Don't ever forget a friend who truly loves You
As it could be that friend who is true to your Needs

Don't ever forget who helped you Grow as your need for more seeds may often re-appear

With all the above, Live Life to its Fullest ....Ö

            Life Isnít Always Easy

Life can be unfair at times when you must maintain faith and never let go.

It is especially during the difficult times that you must live your life to its fullest potential.

Those are the times to triumph over circumstances with hope and courage.

Life isnít always easy, but if you keep going and persevere to the very best of your ability,

You will gain strength to manage the new challenges ahead.

Each goal that you reach is another important step forward.

Believe that there are bright and wonderful days ahead for you and you will find them.

By Mary A. Rothman


Once upon a time, there was a king who offered a prize to the artist who would paint the best picture of peace. Many artists tried. The king looked at all the pictures.

But there were only two he really liked, and he had to choose between them.

One picture was of a calm lake. The lake was a perfect mirror for peaceful towering mountains all around it. Overhead was a blue sky with fluffy white clouds. All who saw this picture thought that it was a perfect picture of peace.

The other picture had mountains, too. But these were rugged and bare. Above was an angry sky, from which rain fell and in which lightning played. Down the side of the mountain tumbled a foaming waterfall. This did not look peaceful at all. But when the king looked closely, he saw behind the waterfall a tiny bush growing in a crack in the rock. In the bush a mother bird had built her nest. There, in the midst of the rush of angry water, sat the mother bird on her nest - in perfect peace.

Which picture do you think won the prize? The king chose the second picture.

Do you know why? "Because," explained the king, "peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart. That is the real meaning of peace."

Likewise, living with cancer is a big challenge, but the cancer battle is won if one lives with it peacefully.
