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 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”.

 By Christian D. Larson

    Great mosaic. Purple is such a beautiful colour. I loved to read your “promise yourself”

    Purple…we were thinking the same color. What an awesome mosaic to start your Mosaic Monday adventure. And I love the ‘Promise Yourself’ challenges…something I should read every morning. Lushious pinkes and what a great parade of pups at the market…I think my favorite was Oliver.
    Thanks for stopping by.

    I love the mosaic of liatris. A wonderful inspirational piece to go with it!

  7. To be so strong and happy not to permit trouble – it’s hard 🙁 especially if we have someone who has nothing better to do that make you feel miserable. But I am learning . . . slowly 🙂
    Thanks for the reminders

  8. Purple — fabulous.  Is that liatris?
    It is gorgeous.  And I love the list you posted, about “Promise yourself.”  It’s wonderful.

  9. Vibrant mosaic! Love the colour and direction – well done!
    The saying is fabulous also – I agree wholeheartedly.

    I love your purple/lavender post.
    I also love how you manage to get around and comment on so many blogs. It takes me forever and I rarely make it all the way around. Good for you!

    Claudia you have outdone yourself again.  The purple (my favorite color–do you remember my bedroom when we were young?) is absolutely gorgeous.  I have to get a new camera! I’m so jealous.  I love the border, too.  You’re amazing!
