I want to thank my friend, Fran Stefaniak
for submiting the following:
You can't be all things to all people.
You can't do all things at once.
You can't do all things equally well.
You can't do all things better than
Your humanity is showing just like everyone
You have to find out who you are, and
You have to decide what comes first,
and do that.
You have to discover your strengths,
and use them.
You have to learn not to compete with
Because no one else is in the contest
of *being you*
You will have learned to accept your
You will have learned to set priorities
and make decisions.
You will have learned to live with your
You will have learned to give yourself
the respect that is due.
And you'll be a most vital mortal.
Dare to Believe
That you are a wonderful, unique person.
That you are a once-in-all-history event.
That it's more than a right, it's your
duty, to be who you are.
That life is not a problem to solve,
but a gift to cherish.
And you'll be able to stay one up on
what used to get you down.
