The Smiling Old Lady (Posted by Priya Deelchand)

   I know a smiling old lady, who says she has made 
  it a life habit to expect, every morning when she 
  awakes, to have a glorious day. 
  
    She says she looks toward the coming day as she 
  would toward a journey she was taking, and she is 
  always expecting some new delight, some wonderful 
  experience. 
  
    She says that the very thought that the day holds 
  beautiful things in store for those who expect them, 
  for those who believe they are coming to them, has 
  been a constant inspiration. 
  
    It has helped to bring her the very things she expects.
  
    If we want to be happy, we must hold the mental 
  attitude which will produce happiness. If we want 
  to be strong, we must refuse to harbor these forebodings, 
  these pet superstitions, these haunting fears which 
  weaken us. 
  
    We must flood our minds with such a current of faith 
  and courage and expectation, that there will not be 
  room for the negative thoughts. 
  
    We must march straight ahead secure in that faith 
  which casted out fear.
