I promise myself...

I promise myself....

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the 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 whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is me.

  4. This is so good! I love it! :o)

    You know what I tried to do today? It's really silly, but I made myself smile at every person I passed in the grocery store. It put me in the best mood. And hopefully brightened someone else's, too....

  11. As I was reading these I felt like I had heard them before... and it's because I HAVE! These quotes are on the back of Dutch Bros. Coffee Cards. I always loved those quotes... I totally thought that the Dutch Bros. founders thought of them!
