Promise yourself ..

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all of your friends feel that there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deeds. To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

- Christian D. Larson

I frequently refer to this as my life motto. It is absolutely what I strive for. I occasionally re-read it .. because well, we all need a little reminder from time to time.

And, a little therapy never hurts, either ..

  2. This is what life if truly about…what we can do to lift others (as well as ourselves) up ever day. Life is too beautiful and too short to live it any other way. Rachel, you always inspire me to be a better person. Just looking at your beautiful face reminds me. Thank you for sharing yourself with the world. Hugs!

  3. You’re entirely too sweet, Erin. I appreciate you!
