A Creed To Live By

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 this 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 is impossible to find.
The quickest way to receive love is to give love:
the fastest way to lose love is to hang on 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 where you have been
but also where you are going.
Life is not a race but a journey
to be savoured each step of the way.
