The Optimist Creed

When Im hiking in nature, I am always impressed by the smallest most curious discoveries. These bright orange pods, are lying in the middle of an otherwise neglected and dead, moldy looking space. Regardless of the shadows that lurk around haunting us, there is always beauty to be found even if its small and seemingly unimportant. I love the words of this creed, and hope to continue this practice working to master the attitude of an optimist. 

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 there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only the best, to work only for the best and 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.
