When evening comes, go off into a quiet place and review your day.
-Have you been kind and thoughtful, or mean and thoughtless?
-Have you kept an even temper, or have you lost your temper when things have gone wrong?
-Have you been pleasant, or grouchy?
-Have you inspired those whom you have met, or have you depressed and discouraged them?
-Have you done something creative and worth while, or have you wasted the day with petty things?
-Have you been square and fair in what you’ve done?
-Have you increased the happiness-moments in the lives of others, or have you thought only of self?
-Have you enlarged your mental horizon, expanded your personality–have you grown larger, or shrunk smaller?
What we do day by day determines what we become. Hour by hour we build our lives for better or for worse. A daily inventory will help to keep us on the right track, headed toward our highest ideals.
