“A successful person
is one who can lay
a firm foundation
with the bricks
that others throw
at him or her.”
~ David Brinkley
The bricks of envy and jealousy can hurt,
only if you let them.
If you are building your life
with honest sweat and tears,
doing only the next right thing,
you will be supplying the mortar
to hold together a reputation
that cannot be shaken.
Tonight, know that you are a success
if you can lay your head on the pillow
and can say a prayer of thanks to your Higher Power
for having another beautiful, blessed day.
Happiness is successfully laying a firm foundation.
Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
