THE OPTIMIST CREED

Dad has often been discribed as the "Eternal Optimist" and I believe his children are the same way.  I know I am...

There is an organization that dad and all other optimists should apply:  Optimist International

http://www.optimist.org/

This organization is a volunteer organization that is focused on helping others.

The members of this organization live by the following creed:

  • 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 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 not 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.
How can you be bothered with the turmoils of life and struggles if you are always thinking positive?

Try smiling all day long today and say only positive things.  It will make you feel so much better and you will bring peace and happiness to those around you.

Or, in my case, it will just annoy me, and I will end up eating someone. :P
Just kidding!
