The Smiling Old Lady (Posted by Priya Deelchand)

I know a smiling old lady, who says she has made
it a life habit to expect, every morning when she
awakes, to have a glorious day.

She says she looks toward the coming day as she
would toward a journey she was taking, and she is
always expecting some new delight, some wonderful

She says that the very thought that the day holds
beautiful things in store for those who expect them,
for those who believe they are coming to them, has
been a constant inspiration.

It has helped to bring her the very things she expects.

If we want to be happy, we must hold the mental
attitude which will produce happiness. If we want
to be strong, we must refuse to harbor these forebodings,
these pet superstitions, these haunting fears which
weaken us.

We must flood our minds with such a current of faith
and courage and expectation, that there will not be
room for the negative thoughts.

We must march straight ahead secure in that faith
which casted out fear.
