My name is Jose Matamoros. What I have written has come straight from my heart, and my own personal experiences. I am sharing it with you so you do not walk in the same path as I have. It is a privilege for me to take this time, and let you know that no matter what you’re going through or where you are coming from there is hope. Just do the right things and choose your friends wisely. God has a plan for your life, and He wants to see you succeed. Set your goals and don’t give up. You just do your best and God will do the rest. Be respectful to your parents, peers, and others. Meditate before you make any decision; if you know that it’s wrong don't do it. Be kind to everyone and treat others the way you want to be treated. Be very positive at all times and always encourage others. Don't listen to negative advice or do foolish things. Be confident and have self control at all times. Help others and be joyful always, and you will be rewarded. Don’t allow your negative thoughts to control your life. You must control your thoughts always. Be grateful for all things and forgive those who hurt you. Don’t hate, show love. Love will bring happiness, unity, peace, success, joy, health, goodness, and many other great things in life but hate and selfishness only brings destruction. Value friendships. Also be humble and gentle. Be thankful and show appreciation and many doors will be opened for you. Do your very best in everything that you do and be honest with yourself and others around you. You will create what you think and say. If you don’t have anything positive to say, don’t say anything at all. Find positive and trustworthy people to associate with. Think and act positive and you’ll get positive results. Show me your friends and I will show you the future. Do good and everything that you do will prosper. Godly friends bring happiness. Your angry, cynical friends will do you no good. They will only bring you down with them. They will not be there for you when you really need help. Be an example and accept your wrongs and stay focused on your goals and strive for the best. Be yourself and don’t settle for less. You can be imitated, but never duplicated. Ask God to help you to walk in the right path. Remember, He won’t let you down. He won’t leave or forsake you. GOD BLESS Jose Matamoros P.S. Wrong decisions can/will bring bad consequences. 76
