Friday Frills



I will live through the next 24 hours and not try to tackle all of life’s problems at once. 

I will improve my mind. I will learn something useful. 
I will learn something that requires effort, thought, and concentration. 

I will be agreeable. I will look my best, speak in a well-modulated voice, 
Be courteous and considerate. 
I will not find fault with any friend, relative or colleague. 
I will not try to change or improve anyone but myself. 

I will have a programme. I might not follow it exactly, but I will have it. 
I will save myself from two enemies - hurry and indecision. 

I will do a good turn and keep it a secret. If anyone finds out, it won’t count. 
I will do two things I don’t want to do, just for the exercise. 

I will believe in myself. 
I will give my best to the world,
 and feel confident that the world will give its best to me.

Hi Sam! Hope your day is going fine! Is getting cloudy and rainy over here, pretty sad!:) Your words are so inspiring, even this Fri. If there is a thing I've learnt is that we cant fix all the problems we have at once since the effect is to complicate them much more!:) Better is let they go by and things will solved by themselves. Is a waste of time try to change things especially when they are just done. What you give to others, for sure is the same you will get back, be the best with everyone and everyone will be the best with you indeed:) Just believe in the amazing skills everyone get inside, able to change the world, just with the power of will:) Happy Friday my dear, big hugs! xo

Many thanks, dearest Sam, for your great words again. I think most of the people don´t dare to believe in themselves and live under their own possibilities. In my opinion this is really a harm because I´m sure each person has wonderful talents and skills - and each character so great sides!

Wish you a wonderful weekend - please don´t forget to believe in you, I´m sure you are a wonderful and reliable woman <3

Denise Sabs said...

I loved this Frills now! This is exactly the way I have been trying to live! To learn something useful, to look my best, to believe in myself - although the last one requires more effort... I can be very lazy! Thank you so much for these amazing words! Believe it or not, they give me energy to do things I have to! You are a star, dear Sam - I didn't forget the answer :) I wanted to do it yesterday, but as I said, I can be very lazy... :) my nature! denisesplanet com
