Reading this quote was such a powerful sentiment to me on my special day. I not only was inspired but I was also able to pin point some of the promises that are not only agreeable but I fashion as whole-heartedly. I will continue to strive doing one that I deem important, to be to the utmost, true to myself. How about you, can you say that you have you been true to yourself, giving the very best version of you? What promise do you wish to achieve?
“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 in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make optimism come true. To think only 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.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words but great deed. To live in faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
