Chapter 1, Page 20, Book 13



A Creed to Live By

Don't determine your worth by comparing yourself with others.
It is because we are different that each of us is special.

Don't set your goals by what others deem important.
Only you know what is best for you.

Don't take for granted the things closest to your heart;
cling to them as you would your life, for without them life
is meaningless.

Don't let your life slip through your fingers
by living in the past or for the future.

By living your life ONE DAY AT A TIME
you will live all the days of your life.
Don't give up when you still have something to give.

Nothing is really over... until the moment you stop trying.

Don't be afraid to admit that you are less than perfect;
it is this fragile thread that binds us to each other.

Don't be afraid to encounter risks,
It's by taking chances we learn how to be brave.

Don't shut LOVE out of your life
by saying it's impossible to find.

The quickest way to receive LOVE is to give LOVE,
the fastest way to lose LOVE is to hold it too tightly
and the best way to keep LOVE is to give it wings.

Don't dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams is to be without HOPE;
To be without HOPE is to be without purpose.

Don't run through life so fast that you forget not only
WHERE YOU'VE BEEN -- but also -- WHERE YOU'RE GOING.

Life isn't a race, but......
IT'S A JOURNEY -- TO BE SAVORED EACH STEP OF THE WAY.

I try to live every day with joy in my heart.  To help me I've created a chest full of happy memories.  You'll often see pictures, poems and stories that make me smile and inspire me, and notes on things I've done or want to do.  I choose items that delight and excite me.   These are the things I put in my daily posts.  Sometimes I've repeated verses and quotes, but they are the ones that meant something special for that particular day.

If I am not feeling joyful, I tap into my memory chest and remember everything that brings me happiness. Life is meant to be savored.
