wednesday words: the optimist creed

sharing one of my very very favorite quotes on this sunny wednesday:

"Promise 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 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.
-Christian Larson-
