Promise Yourself

Promise yourself 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 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
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.


... Christian D. Larson...
Optimist International
Optimist Creed

YOU are the most important
person in your life!
Be good to yourself -
strive to be happy,
and, have a wonderful life!




May You Always
Feel Loved

May you find serenity and tranquility
in a world you may not always understand.
May the pain you have known
and the conflict you have
experienced give you the strength
to walk through life facing each new
 situation with courage and optimism.

Always know that there are those
whose love and understanding
will always be there,
even when you feel most alone.
May you discover enough goodness
 in others to believe in a world
of peace.

May a kind word,
 a reassuring touch,
a warm smile be yours
 every day of your life,

And may you give these gifts
as well as receive them.

Remember the sunshine
when the storm seems unending.
Teach love to those
who know hate,
and let that love embrace you
as you go into the world.
May the teachings of those
you admire become part of you,
 so that you may call upon them.

Remember, those whose lives
you have touched
and who have touched yours
 are always a part of you,
even if the encounters were less
than you would have wished.
It is the content of the encounter
that is more important than its form.

May you not become too concerned
 with material matters,
but instead place immeasurable value
on the goodness in your heart.

Find time in each day
to see beauty and love
in the world around you.
Realize that each person
 has limitless abilities,
but each of us
 is different in our own way.
What you may feel you lack
 in one regard may be more than
 compensated for in another.

What you feel you lack
 in the present may become
one of your strengths in the future.
May you see your future as one filled
with promise and possibility.

Learn to view everything
as a worthwhile experience.
May you find enough inner strength to
determine your own worth by yourself,
and not be dependent on
another's judgments
of your accomplishments.

 

 

"May you always feel loved"

 


 I Hope You Dance
Lee Ann Womack

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat
But always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed

I hope you still feel small
When you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes
I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances
But they're worth taking
Loving might be a mistake
But it's worth making

Don't let some Hell-bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out
Reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

(Time is a wheel in constant motion
Always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years
And wonder where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small
When you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes
I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

(Time is a wheel in constant motion
Always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years
And wonder where those years have gone)
