Overcome every hill and dale,
Reach for the stars in the universe,
Dream big and dare to fail.
You're never too old or never to young
To reach places no one else has been,
Do the things that stir your soul,
And keep doing them over again.
Jump off mountains or out of airplanes,
Start living, if you have never fought
To live a life that will stir your heart,
It makes no difference if you succeed or not.
What matters most is the challenge
By doing things that make others pale,
Start doing the deeds that some dare not.
Dream big and dare to fail.
What does it matter if you don't succeed,
It only matters that you feel the pride
Of putting some excitement into your life
And of knowing that at least you tried.
Don't be afraid to to lose or fail,
Just give it all you've got,
You will find your life more rewarding
If in its enthusiasm you get caught.
Aim for those stars high in the sky
And never settle for anything less,
Don't even ask how far they are
And don't even try to guess.
Just reach out as far as you can,
For that is all you need to do
To fulfill all your wishes and dreams,
And to find the real you.

A woman has strengths that amaze men.
She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
She holds happiness, love and opinions.
She smiles when she feels like screaming.
She sings when she feels like crying, cries when
she's happy and laughs when she's afraid.
Her love is unconditional!
There's only one thing wrong with her.

All things come from love,
But it creates nothing.
The force and intensity of love is immense,
But it makes no claim to power.
Love cares for and nourishes everything,
Yet it does not hold on to things.
True love is part of everyone
And is hidden deep in every heart.
Thus it is humble.
All things eventually come back to love.
It alone lasts forever.
Love is not aware of its greatness
Thus it is truly great. (P.H.)

"Here is a very powerful insight: see EVERYTHING that happens in your life as being for your best interest.
Anything that annoys you is "for" teaching you patience.
Anyone who abandons you is "for" teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet.
Anything that angers you is "for" teaching you forgiveness... and compassion.
Anything that has power over you is "for" teaching you how to take your power back.
Anything you hate is "for" teaching you unconditional love.
Anything you fear is "for" teaching you courage to over come your fear.
Anything you can't control is "for" teaching you how to let go and trust the Universe."

And tell me what you see
Is it really you?
Or someone you cannot be
Don’t look at someone else’s mirror
And tell them who they should be
Looking in their mirror
Will not change what your mirror sees
When you look into your mirror
Are you sure you see yourself?
As you gaze into your eyes
Are you sure your eyes aren’t reflecting someone else?
It’s not the mirror’s fault,
That it reflects someone else
How do you expect a mirror to reflect you
If you don’t know who you are yourself ~Mehreen Mujeeb
