I think I'm cursed every Monday morning. Waking up = death. When I finally get into work there are already a million emails/hearings/trials/subpoenas/meetings/phone calls needed to be made, even though I was all caught up last Friday afternoon? And that just takes us to 10 AM.
So today was chaos.
But then I ran across this:
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 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 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 deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side,
so long that you are true to the best that is in you."
-Christian D. Larson
I love it.
I love it so, so much.
I love people who are like this (I luckily know a whole bunch of them)
And I'd like to always be like this too.
Happy, Happy Monday!
(and thanks to Amanda for sharing it with me!)
PS. I can't love Taylor Swift (or her new song) any more than I do now.
