Mindful Moment

A short poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Look him up, he's a cool guy. TO HAVE SUCCEEDED To laugh often and love much; To win the respect of intelligent people; And the affection of children; To earn the approbation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To give one's self; To leave the world a little better, Whether by a healthy child, A garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To have played and laughed with enthusiasm And sung with exultation; To know even one life has breathed easier Because you have lived.... This is to have succeeded. Thanks Bailee!!!!
