Life Is a Path of Roses Full of Thorns

By Maria T. Mejia

September 5, 2013

Never limit yourself!! Dream big!! Believe in yourself! No matter what cards you were dealt with, make the best out of any situation. LOVE BIG!! LIVE INTENSELY!! Accept the struggles and overcome them with dignity and without the need of being bitter or selling yourself or your soul. Nothing lasts forever so embrace everything and everyone. Everyone ... good and bad, is a teacher. Evolve spiritually and do not only focus on having material things ... I love stuff ... but at the end of the day what fulfills our souls and heart is being spiritually content and having your heart full and conscious clear. I may have done many bad things in my past ... some have done more ... some less ... but I have paid my dues and now is time to reap what I sowed. Never let envious people or jealous people make you feel less than ... their hate and anger is a reflection on who they are and how they feel about themselves. They live their life through you and think your life is perfect (NOT). No one has a perfect life or is free of problems!! The difference is the attitude that we have with negative situations and seeing the glass full and not half empty ... it took me many, many years to get to this point and I am loving being 40. I know what I want and I know how to get it ... and I know that I do not know it all. I am still learning in this thing called LIFE and the rest is still unwritten. Like my mother says: Life is a path full of roses filled with thorns.
