"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

I have rated myself on each based on the last two years (1 to 10):

1) laugh often and much: 4
2) respect of intelligent people: 3
3) the affection of children: 9.5
4) the appreciation of honest critics: 3
5) endure the betrayal of false friends: 8
6) appreciate beauty: 6
7) find the best in others: 5
leave the world a bit better: pending 4
9) to know one has breathed easier: 9

51.5/9 = 5.722
1 - 4 fail, 4 - 7 break even, 7+ succeed
well at least I'm not a failure.
"Somewhere in the darkness, the gambler he broke even....And in his dying words I found an ace I could keep." Kenny Rogers

hope this finds you well

It requires patience, to deal with false freinds, critics and children. just a thought.

I can deal with critics, grit my teeth and bear it with kids, but false friends are a real pain...

Hugs to you, dear.
