I recently read this post from Becky Irvine . It is called "The Optimist Creed"and she found it in a book she has. I thought it was such good advice --some of it just what I needed to hear--that I have "borrowed" it from her to post here.
-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 special 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 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.
Another post that also has good advice that I am sure you will want to check out is Nature Girl. Loved it!
