wise words...

I read these words in Maya Angelou's book 'Letter to my daughter' and thought to share it:

"There have been people in my life who meant me well, taught me valuable lessons, and others who have meant me ill and, have given me ample notification that my world is not meant to be all peaches and cream. 
I have made many mistakes and no doubt will make more before I die. When I have seen pain, when I have found that my ineptness has caused displeasure, I have learned to accept my responsibility and to forgive myself first, then to apologize to anyone injured by my misreckoning. Since I cannot un-live history, and repentance is all I can offer God, I have hopes that my sincere apologies were accepted. 
You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them. 
Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. Do not complain. Make every effort to change things you do not like. If you cannot make a change, change the way you have been thinking. You might find a new solution. 
Never whine. Whining lets a brute know that a victim is in the neighborhood. 
Be certain that you do not die without having done something wonderful for humanity."
