 Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.  Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

~Phillipians 2:3-4~

 Reading my emails is a part of my morning routine.  And while scrolling through my inbox this morning, I came across a rather oddly titled email.  The title read “How to Be Perfectly Miserable”.  A bit perturbed, my first thoughts were, “Do I really need a “how-to” guide to know how to be miserable”?  “I thought I had already earned my Ph.D. in misery”? Intrigued,  I opened the email and inside, I found this beautiful poem.  The poem came from Thankful Homemaker, as a gentle reminder to always remain humble and to keep my eyes on Jesus, and not myself.  It is my prayer that this poem blesses you today, as it blessed me.  🙂


How to Be Perfectly Miserable

(Author Unknown)

Think about yourself,

Talk about yourself,

Use “I” as often as possible,

Mirror yourself continually in the opinion of others,

Listen greedily to what people say about you,

Expect to be appreciated,

Be suspicious,

Be jealous and envious,

Be sensitive to slights,

Never forgive a criticism,

Trust nobody but yourself,

Insist on consideration and respect,

Demand agreement with your own views on everything,

Sulk If people are not grateful to you for favors shown,

Never forget a service you may have rendered,

Be on the outlook for a good time for yourself,

Shirk your duties if you can,

Do as little as possible for others,

Love yourself supremely,

Be selfish!
