The years I was Director at a Home Health Agency, I kept a motivational file. A collection of materials to share with the staff to keep them going. The other day I pulled that file out. It is full of Golden information. I found a poem that was given to me by one of the staff. Her grandmother had given it to her, which made her stop and think. I reread this and wanted to share it with everyone.
By Edgar Albert Guest
I have to live with myself, and so,
I want to be fit for myself to know;
I want to be able as days go by
Always to look myself straight in the eye;
I don’t want stand with the setting sun
And hate myself for the things I have done.
I don’t want to keep on a closet shelf
A lot of secrets about myself,
And fool myself as I come and go
Into thinking that nobody else will know
The kind of a person I really am;
I don’t want to dress myself up in sham.
I want to go out with my head erect,
I want to deserve all men’s respect;
But here in the struggle for fame and pelf,
I want to be able to like myself.
I don’t want to think as I come and go
That I’m bluster and bluff and empty show.
I never can hide myself from me—
I see what others may never see,
I know what others may never know,
I never can fool lmyself– and so,
Whatever happens, I want to be
Self-Respecting and conscience free!!!!
I hope this helps everyone to look at themselves!!!
