As I begin my day this morning, I find myself reflecting on this quote by Christian D. Larson, letting the words soak into my soul. As I am tempted to see all the places I fall short, I remind myself that Rome wasn’t built in a day. And neither am I. I am a work in progress. My prayer is that each day I am better than the last.
And as I read these words, something moves in me, and says, “Yes. This is how I want to live my life. This is how I want to write on the wall of life.”
Promise yourself 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 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 expect only the best.
To be enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to 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, to strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
~Christian D. Larson
This. This is how you write on the wall of life.
How do you want to write on the wall of life?
