Interesting thought to share

I received an email this morning..it may be not one of the most interesting email to share as no juicy news or hot scandals to reveal..but I found the thoughts from Maya Angelou are interesting to share with you peeps;) (kempen khidmat masyarakat)

But, before that, let me introduce wh0's Maya Angelou..(in case you guys are wondering who she is..) She's an American autobiographer and poet, also being called as "America's most visible black female autobiographer"

I just love the thoughts she lives by!!!

I'll paste exactly what is written in the email ok?

Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday… Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older.

And, there on television, she said it was 'exciting...'

Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day.....like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first.

The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words!

Maya Angelou said this:

'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 making a 'living' is not the same thing as 'making a life.'

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

'I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw some things 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 pains, 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 I still have a lot to learn...'

'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.'

I'm sure all those thoughts are not new to us, we may have heard about it somewhere else..but it's good to be reminded once in a while..

until then..take care
