Peaceful, easy feeling


Peace. That's what we want in our lives and for the world. When I'm at the ocean, I feel an incredible calm and the tenet from the Optimist Creed, "to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind," reigns. That's why I wanted to share that peaceful, easy feeling with you.

And just for good measure, here's the rest of the Optimist Creed:

Promise yourself
  • To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind
  • To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet
  • To make all your friends feel that there is something in them
  • To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true
  • To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best
  • To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own
  • To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future
  • To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile
  • To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others  
  • To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Cocoa Beach Optimist Club Fishing Derby

It's only fifteen seconds, but it is fifteen seconds of one of the best Optimist Club projects that I've seen. The Cocoa Beach Optimist Club, Florida, coordinates a huge fishout with a $10,000 prize.

Take a look at all the fun and imagine what your Optimist Club can do in its community.
