A Note to Myself
Never give up, hold steadfast on your work and goals,
Aim high, go slow, find refinement,
Don't rush and hurry things along,
Back off others and have fun with my life,
Do not trust so easily and so blindly,
Stop assuming people mean what they say,
Sop assuming people say what they mean.
Stop assuming people will do what they say they will do.
Listen more carefully,
Watch for double tongues and duplicitious minds,
Look for consistancy...
Actions speak louder than words.
There is always love,
My happiness is within me and it pours out and over flows to those who accept it,
My goodness and mercy bring grace to everyone.
My smile is infectious,
My laughter contagious,
Live in the present moment,
Sieze the day...carp the damn!
Speak kindly and softly,
Do good deeds daily,
Always help another in need.
Pray daily and if you can fill someones need..do so!
Faith without actions is dead.
Lift others up in prayer,
Be Cammy, be free,
Live, love and laugh,
Life is a dance, dance daily,
Life is a song, sing everyday,
Life is a poem, write daily
Life is a story..share yours.
