Friday Frills


I wish I were...

Big enough to honestly
 admit all my shortcomings,
Brilliant enough to accept praise 
without it making me arrogant.

Tall enough to tower above deceit, 
Strong enough to welcome criticism.

Compassionate enough 
to understand human frailties,
Wise enough to recognize my mistakes.
 

Humble enough to appreciate greatness,
 
Staunch enough to stand by my friends. 

Human enough to be thoughtful of others,
 
Courageous enough to face my every fear.

Righteous enough to be devoted to my Faith, and
Receptive enough to embrace every opportunity life sends my way.

Beautiful words :) At the end of the week inspiration is just what's needed. The praise one struck a chord with me sometimes I get embarrassed at being praised but I'm trying to be happier and more confident with it!

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! Hope your day is going well. I always wait your Friday Frills for a wise and worth thought for the day. And these words are very inspiring for me. I think we all spend the life wishing to be a different person from the one we are, without neither try to be that type of person for real. If we are able to wish for a change, we are noticing that there is something that doesnt go well in us, so we are also able to make the change happens inside. If we think so thats means that we have a big will and faith in what is in our possibilities, everyone could be the kind of person who dreams to be, we need to believe in us and to not care on what others think. At those phrases will add also: be strong enough to make our dreams real. Happy Friday my friend, hugs! xo
