"Life Is Beautiful"

Lessons of Life...

I feared being alone until I learned to like myself.
I feared failureuntil I realized that I only fail when I don't try.
I feared successuntil I realized that I had to try in order to be happy with myself.

I feared people's opinions until I learned thatpeople would have opinions about me anyway.

I feared rejection until I learned tohave faith in myself.
I feared pain until I learned that it's necessary for growth.
I feared the truth until I saw the ugliness in lies.

I feared life until I experienced its beauty.

I feared death until I realized that it's not an end, but a beginning.

I feared my destiny,until I realized that I had the power to change my life.
I feared hate until I saw that itwas nothing more than ignorance.
I feared love until it touched my heart,making the darkness fade into endless sunny days.

I feared ridicule until I learned how to laugh at myself.

I feared growing old until I realized that I gained wisdom every day.
I feared the future until I realized that life just kept getting better.
I feared the past until I realized thatit could no longer hurt me.

I feared the dark until I saw the beauty of the starlight.

I feared the light until I learned that the truth would give me strength.
I feared change,until I saw that even the most beautiful butterfly had to undergo a metamorphosis before it could fly.
