Promise Yourself…

The following is a set of New Year’s Resolutions. If everyone made such an effort to be a better person many of our long-suffered social ills would resolve themselves. Take it upon yourself to make the person inside your head a better person. This is the greatest gift you can give to the world and many people will thank you…
– I guarantee it.

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 special about 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 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 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.

Have a wonderful year ahead and remember that the future depends on what you make of it
not  just what happens.

Hugs and Kiss to Everybody,

The Castle Lady

    That is a good list. We would all do better if we followed such. I really liked the idea of cheering for others success as much as my own. Here is my take. http://joepalmer.wordpress.com/2011/12/30/resolutions-you-should-make/

      Don’t you love this one ? I found this in my Mom’s old recipe book- one of her gems that she wrote anywhere the inspiration hit ! I like to share this every now and then. It reminds us what the purpose truly is for resolutions.
