The safest principle through life, instead of reforming others, is to set about perfecting yourself. We should never feel bad if people remember us only at the time of their need, feel privileged that they think of us like a candle in the darkness of their life. Our strength is looking back and seeing what we've have been through and knowing we were strong enough to make it through.
So if one dream should fall, and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again. It's simple really, just let the beauty of what you love be what you do.
Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire. If you did, what would there be to look forward to? Be thankful when you don't know something, for it gives you the opportunity to learn. Be thankful for the difficult times. During those times you grow. Be thankful for your limitations, because they give you opportunities for improvement. Be thankful for your mistakes.
They will teach you valuable lessons. Be thankful when you're tired and weary, because it means you've made a difference. It's easy to be thankful for the good things. A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are also thankful for the setbacks. Find a way to be thankful for your troubles, and they can become your blessings.
