The Great Book of Lists, chapter 2.2 : Words that matter

This week’s theme was suggested by my friend and poetess extraordinaire Rosemary.  She has been kind enough to write the prompt so here are her words.

Words, as simple as they may seem, possess power. Once spoken, you cannot take them back. Once said, it’ll be either white or black.
So today, let’s make a list of those words that has pushed you forward, to do good, to be glad. Words that kept you standing. Words that encouraged you to keep moving. Words that picked you up. Words that lit you up. Words that introduced you to an unknown world. Words that explained you the meaning of life, even beyond earth.
Those words deserve to be shared, so let’s share them today.
Here is my list of Words that matter
Never ever give up on your dreams
My daily motto that drives me through thick and thin. The time might not be the best but as long as I keep working on realizing my dreams, everything is fine. Giving up on what passionates me would be a disaster.

Be your own best friend
Treat yourself with love, respect, patience, understanding and encouragement.

And most important, don’t be your worst enemy. This job already has so many applicants.

When going through hell, keep going. (Churchill)
Very important words in time of doubt. I need to keep trying in order to succeed in what ever I set my mind on. Last example was meringue on the christmas log cake. I failed my 2 first attempts and was tempted to give up. But I took time to quiet down and tried a third time and finally succeeded.

The trial/mistake method is a bumpy one but  times of crisis are  also when one learns the most.

Luck might always strike (My father)
It’s important to stay open minded and keep your eyes open. You never now when life might offer you an opportunity, or a parking spot for your car when you’re on the verge of being late.

Any problem ? Let’ talk
I’ve always been convinced communication can solve half of the problem. Goodwill helps for the other half.

You better work, Ru Paul
Borrowed form Ru Paul’s song, these words have always reminded me to work at achieving my goals. They won’t magically happen.

Be the change you want to see in the world.
Gandhi’s words inspire me everyday. They influence the way we raise our child, the stories I write, the way I help people whenever I can.
