Friday Frills

The more generous we are, the more joyous we become.

The more cooperative we are, the more valuable we become. 

The more enthusiastic we are, the more productive we become.

The more serving we are, the more prosperous we become. 

The more outgoing we are, the more helpful we become.

The more curious we are, the more creative we become. 

The more patient we are, the more understanding we become.

The more persistent we are, the more successful we become.

You are the master of your own universe...
How you choose to use this power is all up to you.
Use it well, and you can become whatever you would like to be.

Here we are with one of my fav topic from you Sam!:) The todays words are a good reminder for how we choose to live. In particular I love 2 sentences: "the more curious we are, the more creative we become" and "the more patient we are, the more understanding we become", love to be creative, I am a kind of curious person indeed about everyone and everything around me:) But I need to be more patient!:) You are right dear, the power is just inside of us, we dont need to search it outside or in others, if we believe in our ability and talent, we become the person who dream to be:) Happy Friday! xo
