Promise yourself

Everyday is a new beginning,
A chance to grow and make your life worth living.
So when you wake up each day,
Make these promises to yourself come what may.
Begin your day with smile,
Promise yourself that you will go that extra mile.
Thank God for a new day,
Promise yourself that you will bravely face challenges that come your way.
For each one of us God has his own plan,
But promise yourself you will do what you can.
You may not be the best in what you do,
But promise yourself you will do what it takes to.
There may be times when everything seems awkward,
But promise yourself that you will keep moving forward.
There may be times when things go wrong,
But promise yourself that you will be strong.
There will be moments that will make you sad,
But promise yourself to find little things that will make you glad.
There will be times when you want to give up,
But promise yourself that even if you fall you will rise up.
You may be busy the whole day with the work that you do,
But promise yourself to make time for the people who love you.
You may not be always right,
So promise yourself to say sorry when you might.
Our life is measured by the happiness we spread,
Promise yourself to bring smiles to all around you before you are dead.
We don’t know when our time on this earth will be full,
Promise yourself to make this journey on earth beautiful!
