Almost

Vain attempt,

valiant effort,

lame excuse,

“almost”

is a word that

white washes

a multitude of possibilities.

Life is not almost.

Acceptance is not almost.

Your Higher Power is not almost.

When you do not have a clue and you are not sure what happened,

almost” serves as a good explanation.

If you think you almost have it, you are not even close.

Almost, close, but no cigar.

Almost and close are good only in horseshoes and hand grenades.

If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you like to win, but think you can’t,
It is almost certain you won’t.

If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellows will–
It’s all in the state of mind.

If you think you’re outclassed, you are,
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can! ~ Walter D. Wintle

Almost is not good enough, unless you know in your heart

that you did the best you could do.

What shape would the world be in if God almost did it right.

Believe, have faith, God did it right when your soul

was placed into this world for you to do His will.

Today, do not treat yourself almost good enough.

Today, do not treat your family almost good enough.

Today, do not treat your friends almost good enough.

Almost is for the ones who think they have lost.

Today, know that you can win by doing the will

of your Higher Power.

The will of a Higher Power is to: Be kind, Be loving,

Be patient and tolerant, Be forgiving and Be the person

God wants you to be.

Laugh often, Sing loud, and Dance when you get the chance!

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
