Wise Words: The right decision is not always the easy one.

Making the right decision is not always easy, but you will know when you have made the right one. You will be a stronger person through all of the hard work and sacrifice and those around you will also be better.

It never hurts to help another person out - it takes nothing away from you, and in fact, you end up with more "light" :)

Think before you ink.

Choose your words wisely. Make sure that what you put to paper/email/internet is what you wish to convey. Double check to ensure that you really want to put it out there for all to see.

(Been there, didn't do that - yikes :rolleyes:)

Never forget where you came from, or alienate those who try to help you on your way. It may come back to bite you later. Besides, they're not watching you to see how high you'll climb, but how far you'll fall.
