If you can start the day without caffeine . . .

If you can get going without pep pills . . .

If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains . . .

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles . . .

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it . . .

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time . . .

If you can overlook it when those you love take it out on you when — through no fault of yours — something goes wrong . . .

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment . . .

If you can ignore a friend's limited education and never correct him . . .

If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend . . .

If you can face the world without lies and deceit . . .

If you can conquer tension without medical help . . .

If you can relax without liquor . . .

If you can sleep without the aid of drugs . . .

 

 

 

. . . then you are probably the family dog.
