Ladies of the Heart Creed
Celebrate the human spirit. We all share that common bond, love, hope, peace and humanity. This force is probably the more compelling one on this planet because it calls to all of us no matter where we go, or who we are it is always there.
Leave everything a little better than you found it, never underestimate the power of a kind word or deed.
Do not use your time, thoughts or words carelessly for these things are not retrievable. Remember to think before you speak as well as before you write.
Live life with enjoyment and laughter, for these are the components of a healthy heart. Touch all those you meet with the joy of Beauty, Love, and Laughter whenever you can, and always leave them with your greatest gift, a smile.
Follow your heart and listen to your intuition. Act only in Love for your Fellow traveler, as we all could use a little extra Love each day. If you always keep Love in your heart for all, you will never be steered wrong by your intuition.
Reach out and help others, especially those who may be less fortunate than you. Whether it is the help of a smile, a kind ear and a "listen", or a shoulder to cry (or laugh) on, it is so much more rewarding to ask "How can I help you?" rather than trying to figure out "What's in this for me?"
Celebrate the differences in your fellow human. Rather than loving others for the ways in which they are just like you, love them for their variety, and the spice they add to the life we share with them. Men and women were never meant to be clones, but rather to share the earth, enriching each others' lives.
Ponder more, speak less. Often one sees more of their answers when listening, rather than talking. Reserve judgements as long as you have a choice. This way, the choice is made for you from your heart. Watch, listen, and keep notes if you must, but temper your judgements only with love. When your heart speaks, listen.
Trust, and be trustworthy. Never go back on your word, and never hide your true feelings. Accept this in your friends and loved ones, as well, for we can never hope for harmony unless the truth is the center of our world. Wear a face of welcome, rather than false pride, and draw admiration honestly, the same as you admire others for their own special spirit.
Live today like it matters. Because it does.
There are people you'll never even know who will be influenced by what you do today.
So give this day your attention, your love, your very best.
There are ways that you cannot now imagine in which your own life will be influenced by the way you live this day.
So live it with integrity, enthusiasm and an eye for the positive possibilities.
The world in which you live will be affected by the way you make use of this day.
So fill your moments with thankfulness, imagination and joy.
Today matters, and right now you have the chance to make it matter in a most positive and fulfilling way.
Today is the day when your life is lived, and many things in your life will be determined by what you do with today.
If you take this whole day for granted, it will leave you with nothing but regret.
Yet it does not have to be that way.
Live today like it matters, for now is when you truly can.
