Whenever I’m down or feel nothing is going my way or when everything seems hopeless, I read this.
Life isn’t about keeping score. Its not about how many people call you and its not about who you’ve dated, are dating or haven’t dated at all or who likes you. Its not about your shoes or hair or the color of your skin or where you live or go to school or college. In fact, its not about your grades, money, clothes or colleges that accept you or not. Life isn’t about if you have a lot of friends or if you are alone or about how you are accepted or not. Life just isn’t about that.
But life is about who you love and who you hurt. Its about how you feel about yourself. Its about trust, happiness and compassion. Its about sticking up for your friends and replacing inner hate with love. Life is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance and building confidence. Its about what you say and what you mean. Its about seeing people for who they are and not what they have. Most of all, its about choosing to use your life to touch someone else’s in a way that could never have been achieved otherwise. These choices are what life is about….
