Promise YourselfTo 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 worthwhile 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 expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature you meet.To give so much time to improving 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.To think we'll of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud word, but in great deeds.To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

It's the leftover humans. The survivors. They're the ones I can't stand to look at, although on many occasions I still fail. I deliberately seek out the colors to keep my mind off them, but now and then, I witness the ones who are left behind, crumbling among the jigsaw puzzle of realization, despair, and surprises. They have punctured hearts. They have beaten lungs. Which in turn brings me to the subject I am telling you about tonight, or today, or whatever the hour and color. It's the story of one of those perpetual survivors an expert at being left behind.
Make up your mind to this. If you are different, you are isolated, not only from people of your own age but from those of your parents generation and from your childrens generation too. They'll never understand you and they'll be shocked no matter what you do. But your grandparents would probably be proud of you and say: There's a chip off the old block, and your grandchildren will sigh enviously and say: What an old rip Grandma must have been and they'll try to be like you.
