Today I was the guest speaker at an Optimist Club meeting. I was home by 9 am. How’s that for getting the most out of your day? I love what the group stands for…the work that they do benefits children in the community.

As a thank you to speaking to the group, I was given a plaque with the Optimist Creed on it. I love the creed and I think it will be great to use as positive affirmations to say to myself!

The Optimist Creed

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 to 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.
