  32. things you didn't do more than the one's you did.
  33. Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.
  34. Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.
  35. Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you.
  36. Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes.
  37. Begin each day with some of your favorite music.
  38. Once in a while, take the scenic route.
  39. Send a lot of Valentine cards. Sign them, 'Someone who thinks you're terrific.'
  40. Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice.

How can you be "in" a fight if someone hasn't hit you first? It means you STARTED a fight. So we should start a fight because we anticipated we may be in a fight in the future...?
Never give up on people.but ....don't give them a third chance??? What?

Anonymous said...

You can give someone a chance to change,but don't allow them to continue to allow them to take advantage of you. That i what I get from those two entries..?

Are there any miracle cures for nose and chin whiteheads ??

I get tiny whiteheads on my chin and nose unfortunately they are genetic , if I exfoliate and steam they do go
but reappear the following day. I have tried acids which again helps but really drys my nose out .

any suggestions I have literally tried everything under the sun from clay to acids to tea tree to which...
show more THere is never a miracle cure for anything.
Usually whiteheads pop up because of clogged pores, basically from not
exfoliating enough.
