Time grabs you by the wrist directs you where to go. So make the best of this test and don't ask why. It's not a question but a lesson learned in time.

This world alone,
Does not tell us,
Who we will be,
Where we will go,
Who we will see.
This world alone,
Is not always fair,
It does not always go your way,
It almost doesn't care.
This world alone,
Has hatred beyond belief,
Kills people under your feet,
Makes good friends deceit.
This world alone,
Under the right influence,
Under the right care,
Can do wonders.
This world alone,
Makes miracles,
Makes wonderful people,
Makes historic events.
If you do not start with an idea,
A hope for a better world,
A dream to make a difference,
This world alone would be,
FULL of hatred,
FULL of selfishness,
FULL of murder,
It is not...

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson

This is real good!! =T
