If we had no faults, we should not take pleasure in noting those of others.

Unburdened

Though your responsibilities and obligations are very real and pressing, they do not have to burden you. For when you are willing to accept responsibility for something, you put yourself in control of it.

Though the frustrations may be deep and numerous, they do not have to burden you. For by working your way through those frustrations, you are building valuable achievements.

Though a profound sadness may come down upon you, it does not have to burden you. For that sadness is possible only because you care so very much, and because you know without a doubt how beautiful life can be.

Though darkness may be all around you, it does not have to burden you. For that darkness only makes your own light more brightly visible.

Though the problems and distractions may seem to have no end, they do not have to burden you. For by moving through them you are moving toward your dream.

Though life may be difficult, it does not have to burden you. For you can live moment by moment by moment, joyfully making the most of each and every one.
