A Creed To Live By

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

Don't set your goals by what other people 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 life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you 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 is by taking chances that we learn to be brave.

Don't shut love out of your life by saying it is 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 are going. Life is not a race, but, a journey to be savored each step of the way.

—Nancy Sims

You Are Special

Even in stillness there is beauty and life. Even in solitude there is happiness and love. What you see and what you feel matters. Who you are and what you will become, is up to you. You are the master of your universe!

Until there is chaos, you don't appreciate the quiet. Until there are crowds, you don't appreciate being alone. Now is the time to reflect and realize what you have. No matter what your lot in life, you are unique.

Take time now to discover yourself, it's never too late. You always have something to contribute. If you are lonely, be a friend, share a smile. For the hectic, find a slice of solitude no matter how small.

Life is not always as it appears. You have the power to alter yours and make a difference. You are rare and unmatched... There is only one you!

Be content, and know that you are special!
