I simply LOVE this! I am living by this and reciting it every day! Nothing ... NOTHING feels better than living positively and being optimistic. It leads to happiness and peace of mind. ♥
The Optimist's Creed
by Christian D. Larson
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 worthwhile 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 expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.
To give so much time to improving 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.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.
I also have to share this song, that I heard in one of Zumba classes for a cool down. (THANK YOU SUNDAY!!! This song brightens my days! ♥ ) I just love the beginning ... so TRUE!
"I’m as happy as I can be
Cause I’m allergic to tragedy
The doctor says something’s wrong with me
The smile on my face has no remedy"
Happiness is a choice, it really is! And I have chosen it. Smiling feels AMAZING. I smile at everyone and it feels good ... even when they don't smile back!
And I have to share this cute little saying I found today too. I mean, I am pretty awesome! Can't waste all this awesomeness being sad! LOL I kid, I kid. But it's still a good smile-jerker! ;-)
Have a HAPPY, OPTIMISTIC, SMILE FILLED day!
