The View From My Window

The world as seen from my window and through my eyes

An optimistic outlook September 3, 2008

My husband took me out for breakfast over the past weekend. We ended up at Mom’s Restaurant on Court Street. Several groups meet regularly at Mom’s Restaurant including the Red Hat Ladies, the Kiwanis Club and the Breakfast Optimists. As I looked around the room while waiting for our order to arrive, I noticed the Optimist’s Creed hanging on the wall. It was such an inspiring and, well, optimistic statement that I thought I would share it with you.

If we were all able to follow this path what a different world it would be.

Optimist Creed

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 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 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.

-Optimist International
