Alphabets of Life

4 05 2011

A. Allow yourself to be loved. Let down your walls. Let the world see you for who you are, and don’t let fear be the reason why your heart hardens, cuz somewhere someone is waiting to fall in love with the naked truth that is you.

B. Break bread with the less fortunate. Get to know their stories, and learn something. We all have stories to tell, we just happen to be waiting around for the right person to listen.

C. Count your blessings and give freely.

D. Discover new talents, new people, and new places.

E. Eat dishes from all over the world.

F. Forgive those who have hurt you, including yourself. Holding on to past offenses and shortcomings only constrict the heart. So free yourself from the bitter shackles of resentment and let go. Forgiveness = Salvation.

G. Guard the children. They are not just the future. They are the bearers of hope, trust, and innocence. They hold the key to simple pleasures of this world – the remedy to its chaos.

H. Have faith in your most darkest of days and gloomiest of nights. If faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains, what more can it do?

I. Inspire others. Share your gifts with the world, because what you do matters.

J. Journey through life with an open heart and an open mind.

K. Know your roots. Know your history. Be proud of who you are and where you come from.

L. Love unconditionally. No matter how many times your heart may break remember that “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends.” – Corinthians 13: 7-8

M. Make time for yourself. (I cannot stress this enough.)

N. Never let anyone else determine what you are capable of.

O. Overcome your fears. Such as, heights, the unknown, and even vulnerability.

P. Pray often.

Q. Quit doubting yourself.

R. Re-discover the magic and the beauty of life.

S. Spend time with your family. Keep Father Time on your side.

T. Take risks. Be spontaneous. Once in a lifetime opportunities are once in a lifetime opportunities. So if you happen to pass one up, make sure that the reason is legit.

U. Unearth shoeboxes of memories filled with photographs, ticket stubs, letters, and souvenirs – keepsakes that have the power to replay unforgettable incidents within first glance or a single touch.

V. Voice your opinions. Stand up and speak out.

W. Witness a miracle, like the birth of another human being.

X. X-press yourself. Sing. Dance. Write. Draw. Paint. Keep art live. Make music. Take pictures. Create masterpieces. Embrace individuality.

Y. Yell whatever you want on mountaintops. It’s an amazing act of liberation.

Z. Zap into “beast mode” and challenge yourself. Push past limits. Raise bars. Break barriers. Soar through obstacles. Create your own legacy.

Now I know my ABC’s, next time read my 123’s.
