words

a dear friend  sent me these words last week.  i keep going back to them. words. thoughts. vibes. good things. things that should be shared. perhaps they are words you need today.  or words you can pass along to someone special. 
happy friday and weekend to all. 
I promise myself
To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, & prosperity to every person I meet.
To make all my friends feel that there is 
something worthwhile in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything 
& make my optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, 
& to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others 
as I am about my own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on 
to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful expression at all times & 
give a smile to every living creature I meet.
To give so much time to improving myself 
that I have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, 
& too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of myself & to proclaim this fact to the world, 
not in loud word, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, 
so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
