your heart to those you love, the way you wish you would have."

Poems about Life |
"We are responsible for what we are, and we wish ourselves to be,
we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been
the result of our past actions, it certainly follows that whatever
we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions;
so we have to know how to act."
"How can we resent the life we've created for ourselves? Who's to blame,
who's to credit, but us? Who can change it, any time we wish, but us?"
"While these feelings roll around in our mind every day, the
wish to change becomes even stronger to the point where we
desperately hope for some miracle. But, as we also know, miracles are probably less than the chances of winning the lottery. To wish for changes in your life is no better than playing that long shot at the gaming table, the horse races, or the lottery pool. If you think that positive and needed changes in your life will happen this way then your chances to experience those changes are remote if not impossible."
This Valentine wish is sent to you
