Happy New Year ❤
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 criticise others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
Dear friends, this is just an extract from the much longer Optimist Creed by Christian D Larson, which I strongly encourage you to look up and think on as you go into this new year. Thank you so very, very much for your love and support and I wish you a truly blessed new year, filled with peace and fulfillment, kindness and honest friendships, good health and hearty laughter, and transcendent joy always 💗
