Labore-et-Constantia

The good great men of old
Have all the one path trod,
“Labore et Constantia,”
They wrought and fought for God.

God through our Founder’s hands,
A home to us has given.
And every good we here enjoy,
We own as sent from heaven.

O Father give us grace ,
And keep us in thy care,
“Labore et Constantia, ”
Thine easy yoke to wear.

Nor may we prize as least
The motto of our school ,
“Labore et Constantia,”
God grant it be our rule. (school hymn)

School Life is the best life. Recall your school life & your friends and go back into the past. I always miss my school days. Now when I say I miss school, I mean my friends and the fun, not the studying part 😀

❤ For Dad…

This world has many heroes, you’d know most of them by name. It’s apparent that they gave their best, and they deserve their fame. 

But among all of the heroes this world has ever had, there’s not one that I admire more than my precious Dad. He’s more than just a hero, he never looks for praise. He’s heroic in his quiet strength and in his caring ways. 

He may not be famous as those you hear about or see, but he’s everything and so much more a hero ought to be. 

When I hear about a hero and the special things they’ve done. It reminds me of my Dad for he is the greatest one …

“A son’s first hero, a daughter’s first love” .

Happy Father’s Day Papa! You’re the best Dad in the world. I Love You. ❤ 

It’s Never Too Late

It’s Never Too Late -to start over, never too late to be happy, never too late to be what you might have been. 

It may sometimes feel like you should have started to change your life earlier, when you were a kid or in your teens or early twenties. Or that you should have been born into those right circumstances right away as you came to this earth. It may feel like it is too late now.

You may look to your past and tell yourself: “if only i’d done this or that then things would have been different and better now”. That may be true but you cannot really change the past unless you got a time-machine. And reliving the past in your mind does not change today and this week and month. It just has you hooked on mental reruns that keep you in your regretfilled rut.

It isn’t too late for you to improve something in your life that you really want to change. No matter what age you are at.

There are real limits in most people’s lives and personal development isn’t magic that can fix just about anything quickly and easily. But you can do what you can with what you have where you are right now. Start there.

Make a small change if that is what is possible. From that small change and success you will gain confidence and you can build upon that to make more and perhaps even bigger changes. ☺

Against All Odds

THE BRIDGE will only take you halfway there, to those mysterious lands you long to see.

Through gypsy camps and swirling Arab fair, and moonlight woods where unicorns run free.

So come and walk awhile with me and share the twisting trails and wondrous worlds I’ve known.

But this bridge will only take you halfway there.  The last few steps you have to take alone.

“Don’t fit in. Don’t sit still. Don’t ever try to do less than you are.” Stars don’t sit still, they twinkle.

You Can Do It! 🙂

Behind The Mask

 Roses Aren’t Always Red

And Violets Aren’t Exactly Blue,

The Society That We Live In

Never Seems To Speak The Truth.

 

Smiles Aren’t Always Happy

And Frowns Aren’t Always Upset,

People Judge Too Quickly

And Our Feelings Are What They Forget.

Live Life With No Regrets

An elderly carpenter was ready to retire. He told his employer-contractor of his plans to leave the house-building business to live a more leisurely life with his wife and enjoy his extended family. He would miss the paycheck each week, but he wanted to retire. They could get by.
The contractor was sorry to see his good worker go & asked if he could build just one more house as a personal favor. The carpenter said yes, but over time it was easy to see that his heart was not in his work. He resorted to shoddy workmanship and used inferior materials. It was an unfortunate way to end a dedicated career.

When the carpenter finished his work, his employer came to inspect the house. Then he handed the front-door key to the carpenter and said, “This is your house… my gift to you.”

The carpenter was shocked!

What a shame! If he had only known he was building his own house, he would have done it all so differently.

So it is with us. We build our lives, a day at a time, often putting less than our best into the building. Then, with a shock, we realize we have to live in the house we have built. If we could do it over, we would do it much differently.

But, you cannot go back. You are the carpenter, and every day you hammer a nail, place a board, or erect a wall. Someone once said, “Life is a do-it-yourself project.” Your attitude, and the choices you make today, help build the “house” you will live in tomorrow. Therefore, Build wisely! 🙂

Make Yourself Proud

Happiness is a journey, not a destination. For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin – real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one. Life always begins at the end of your comfort zone. 

Allow yourself to be proud of yourself and all the progress that you’ve made especially the progress that no one else has seen. Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined. 🙂 

Mom: A title just above Queen

Mother & Daughter : It’s a special bond that spans the years.Through Laughter, worry, smiles and tears. A sense of trust that can’t be broken, a depth of love sometimes unspoken. A lifelong friendship built on sharing. Hugs and kisses, warmth and caring. Mother and Daughter, their hearts as one – A link that can never be undone.

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness. The only love that I really believe in is a Mother’s love for her children. 

Dear Mom, I Love You ❤ 

Don’t Give Up

Colonel Sanders | Kentucky Fried Chicken

Once, there was an older man, who was broke, living in a tiny house and owned a beat up car. He was living off of $99 social security checks. At 65 years of age, he decide things had to change. So he thought about what he had to offer. His friends raved about his chicken recipe. He decided that this was his best shot at making a change.

He left Kentucky and travelled to different states to try to sell his recipe. He told restaurant owners that he had a mouthwatering chicken recipe. He offered the recipe to them for free, just asking for a small percentage on the items sold. Sounds like a good deal, right?

Unfortunately, not to most of the restaurants. He heard NO over 1000 times. Even after all of those rejections, he didn’t give up. He believed his chicken recipe was something special. He got rejected 1009 times before he heard his first yes.

With that one success Colonel Hartland Sanders changed the way Americans eat chicken. Kentucky Fried Chicken, popularly known as KFC, was born.

So Remember why you started, never give up and always believe in yourself in spite of rejection.:) 

Word.

Don’t be afraid to do something just because you’re scared of what people are going to say about you. People will judge you no matter what. You can’t change how people treat you or what they say about you. All you can do is change how you react to it. 

I am who I am. I like what I like. I do what I want. Get off my back and deal with it. It’s my life, not yours.
