“I Promise Myself” – “Believe in Impossible Things” 2013
“I Promise Myself –
To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
To talk health, Happiness, and 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 and make my optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only for 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 and 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, and too happy to permit the presence of troble.
To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, as long as I am true to the best that is in me.” (Christian Larson)
“There is no use trying”, said Alice; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I dare say you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen.
“When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” (Lewis Carroll)
Good choices. Now be sure to take it easy on yourself when you don’t live up to all of them. Happy New Year.
