New Year’s Resolution For A Contented Life

happy new year 2017


(Also A Wonderful New Year’s Resolution)

Forget the kindness that you do,
As soon as you have done it;
Forget the praise that falls on you,
The moment you have won it.

Forget the slander that you hear,
Before you can repeat it;
Forget each slight, each spite, each sneer,
Wherever you may meet it.

Remember every kindness done,
To you, whatever its measure;
Remember praise by others won.
And pass it on with pleasure.

Remember every promise made,
And keep it to the letter;
Remember those who lend you aid,
And be a grateful debtor.

Remember all the happiness
That comes your way in living;
Forget each worry and distress,
Be hopeful and forgiving.

Remember good, remember truth,
Remember heaven’s above you.
And you will find through age and youth
True joy and hearts to love you.

A Happy New Year To All!
