I will study the language of kindness and refuse to use words that bite and tones that crush.
I will practice patience at home lest my nasty temper break through unexpectedly and disgrace me.
I will excuse others’ faults and failures as often and as fully as I would expect others be lenient with mine.
I will pray frequently, think good things and work hard.
I will remember that my neighbors have troubles enough to carry without loading mine on them.
I will cure criticism with commendations, close up against gossip and build healthy love by service.
I will be a friend under trying tests and wear everywhere a good-will face un-chilled by aloofness.
I will never gloat over gains, but strive only to enrich others and so gain a wealthy heart.
I will love boys and girls, so that old age will not find me soured and stiff, but fresh and free.
I will gladden my nature by smiling loud on every occasion and by being optimistic.
I will live by the Golden Rule and leave the “business” of getting even for those who have no desire to go to Heaven.
