A Creed to Live By

Donít undermine your worth by comparing yourself with others. It is because we are different that each of us is special. 

Donít set your goals by what other people deem important. Only you know what is best for you. 

Donít take for granted the things closet to your heart. Cling to them as you would your life, for without them life is meaningless. 

Donít let your life slip through your fingers by living in the past or for the future. By living your life one day at a time, you live all the days of your life. 

Donít give up when you still have something to give. Nothing is really over until the moment you stop trying. 

Donít be afraid to encounter risks. It it by tacking chances that we learn how to be brave. 

Donít shut love out of your life by saying itís impossible to fine. The quickest way to receive love is to give love. The fastest way way to lose love is to hold it too tightly; and the best way to keep love is to give it. 

Donít dismiss your dreams. To be without dreams is to be without hope: to be without hope is to be without purpose.

 Donít run through life so fast that you forget not only where youíve been, but also where you are going. Life is not a race, but a journey to be savored each step of the way.
