“I’ve learned” by Maya Angelou

“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life.

I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through lie with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.

I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I’ve learned that even when I have paines, I don’t have to be one.

I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel:

For phenomal women everywhere

“Pretty woman wonder where my secret lies.

I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size.

But when I start to tell them they think I’m telling lies.

I say,

it’s in the reach of my arms, the span of my hips, the stride of my step, the curl of my lips.

I’m a woman phenomenally. Phenomenal Woman.

That’s me”

~Maya Angelou~


Be a rainbow for another person

The thing to do, it seems to me, is to prepare yourself so you can

be a rainbow in somebody else’s cloud.

Somebody who may not look like you.

May not call God the same name you call God – if they call God at all.

I may not dance your dances or speak your language.

But be a blessing to somebody. That’s what I think.

~Maya Angelou~
