Hello hello everyone! :D Today's post is a bit random, but that's nothing new. I'm a firm believer in optimism and the power of positivity. The past couple of months haven't been that easy but the worst is over now. It's been brought to my attention that people tend to get pissed off by others that are overly happy or optimistic. To them I say... sucks to be you! Just because someone's trying their best to see what's good in the world, confident, content with themselves and you can't manage to do the same doesn't mean that they're conceited or arrogant. There are reasons to why a person is the way they are and there's a lesson to learn from everyone you meet. I've got a lot to teach but even more to learn and i'd like to start by sharing this beautiful passage with you all and hope you can find inspiration in it. I have it up on the wall in my room and try my best to follow it:
"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 the only best.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to be
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 trouble.
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 world is on my side,
so long as I am true to the best that is in me."
