I Promise to My Self

I was reading this poem. It inspire me in observing realities that I have gone through that I swore I have to do and take heed on every word that this poem displays. The author presents positive facts that everyone can relate. He showed reality which bites. He shared things that people will ponder on. He gives this for us to learn that promises of the self brings direction to one's plans and aspirations in life. This poem is written by Christian D. Larson. It is entitled "I Promise to My Self".

I Promise to My Self

To be strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind
To talk health, happiness and prosperity with every person I meet.
To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them
To look at the sunny side of everything and make my 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 I am about my 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 I meet
To give so much time to improving myself that I 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 myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds
To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me
