Maya Angelou - Words Count

There's something quite mystical and comforting about Maya Angelou's words. She strikes me as someone you could have tea with for hours. I've been reading quotes of hers to get back to a centered place. I seem to lose my balance based on others actions, opinions or the drama some people can bring into my life. It's quite exciting to be in-between the person I want to be, not quite there yet but at least on the path. I find Maya's words a huge help in my journey essentially towards learning to love and accept love in my life.  

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. 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.”
