Maya Angelou, 'I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.'

Through reading posts from my "blog friends", I can see that so many are having a difficult time right now, including me. This was sent to me today by a dear friend, and it is beautiful.
Written by Maya Angelou, a true Survivor, in every sense of the word. She is beautiful and I admire her. Her words touched me, and I wanted to share them with you.

In April, 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 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 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.

“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”

“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.”

''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.'
