I aspire

Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.  To talk health, happiness and properity to every person you meet.  To make all 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 of the best, to work only for the best and 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.

One thought on “I aspire

  1. The problem is that though I can aspire to all those things. I am human, I am falliable. I make mistakes. I am hard to anger, once angry, quick to cry. Cry in private, feel my pain without sharing. Likely noone knows that side, and only see the anger, rarely the tears. I am human and am quick to wear my game face, smile in red lips, bright shinny eyes at the ready!
