A Creed to Live by

Found this in one of my books and I was using it as a book mark…

Don’t undermine your worth
by comparing yourself to others.
It is because we are different
that each of us is special.

Don’t set your goals by what
other people deem important
Only you know what is best for you.

Don’t take for granted the things
closest to your heart.
Cling to them as you would your life,
for without them life is meaningless.

Don’t 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.

Don’t give up when you still have
something to give.
Nothing is really over…
until the moment you  stop trying.

Don’t be afraid to admit that
you are less than perfect.
It is the fragile thread
that binds us to each other.

Don’t be afraid to encounter risks.
It is by taking chances that
we learn how to be brave.

Don’t shut love out of your life
by saying it’s impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love;
the fastest way to lose love is to hold it too tightly;
and the best way to keep love
is to give it wings.

Don’t dismiss your dreams.
To be without dreams is to be without hope;
to be without hope is to be without purpose.

Don’t run through life so fast
that you forget not only where you’ve been
but also where you’re going.

Life is not a race,
but a journey to be savored
each step of the way.
