A Promise & Challenge

This was reposted on Facebook by an amazing Pain Brother named Joseph Aquilino aka Joey Giggles who lives with the daily pain of RSD and is one of the best advocates I have had the priviledge to meet. I am accepting this challenge and renewing these promises each day. Will you?
"I promise myself
- To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
- To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to 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."

Challenges are doable when we let go of fear and go for it! Nothing is set in stone unless you decide it is. Love yourself enough to pat yourself on the back when you meet a challenge head on. Love yourself enough to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start all over again if you fail. You may not do it the 1st, 2nd or 3rd time, but know that you will NEVER do it IF you do NOT try. Have a blessed weekend filled with happiness! Liz xoxo
