A Princess Carolyn line. A good one, too.
I’d talk less, smile more. Eat more fresh fruit, drink less– no. No, I wouldn’t. I’d do it all the same, more or less.
I’d probably have most of the same virtues and vices. Still waste lots of time. On people and things.
But maybe…. just maybe…
I could get rid of one thing. Well, a few “one things.”
I wish I didn’t give in to my temptation to be angry in front of someone, the very first time! That’s not who I am. I don’t do anger well. If I don’t do it the first time, I can resist the second time, and the third. I haven’t “broken the seal.”
So I will give the benefit of the doubt, take a breath, listen to my master’s advice that I can always take the higher road without worrying that I’ll be taken advantage of.
Most of all, I can know that he’ll protect me against anyone who might even try.
Because my life is happier when I am generous and help. That, you see, is who I am.
Why is that lesson so difficult to learn!
