Some Great Advice for Daily Living

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.

Commit 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 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!

I love little quotes and thoughts. I will have to print up some of these as reminders.

Optimism is always a good thing to practice. These days it is so easy to be pessimistic. But sometimes just having a good attitude or a good sense of humor can make all the difference in the world.

Wow - wouldn't that be AWESOME! Especially the part about being just as enthusiastic over other's successes. What a world it would be :)

See, if I DID believe in tattooing myself, I would tattoo stuff like this on myself to remind me of the good things in life every minute of every day.
Optimism is so needed.
Great post, Sister Joy.
