When you get what you want in your struggle for self, And the world makes us
King for a day, Just go to the mirror and look at yourself, And see what
that person has to say.
For it isn't your father, mother, husband, or wife, Whose judgment upon you
must pass: The person whose verdict counts most in your life, Is the one
staring back from the glass.
He is the person to please, never mind the rest, For he is with you right up
to the end, And you've passed your most dangerous difficult test, If the
person in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway Of years and get pats on the
back as you pass, But your final reward will be heartaches and tears, If
you've cheated the person in the Glass.
Dale Wimbrow, 1895-1954
We all struggle from time to time with our self talk and our self image. No one who walks this earth has a more important opinion of you than you do!
