Let it be said….
That you are you and only you;
That you believe in yourself when others doubt you;
That you waste not your time on the mingling of others’ affairs but on improving your own;
That you speak your truth, and it’s clearly spoken;
That you choose your friends wisely yet are congenial to all;
That you’ll not pass judgment on others for we all have a story;
That no matter how small the task, you will do it your best and no matter how great the results, you remain forever humble;
That you’re not selfish with your knowledge because then it’s worth nothing;
That you are proud but not too proud to admit when you’ve mistaken;
That you don’t have all the answers but are always willing to learn;
That you don’t act self-righteous but treat everyone equal;
That you assist others in need and expect no compensation;
That you respect yourself and therefore are respected in return.
Let it be said about you, and may you say it about yourself.
