How to think of, yourself as in the
dawn of new developments. Say to
yourself many times a day that you
possess more vital power, more men
tal force, more magnetism and charm
than ever before, in your life.’ Say
also that you are better loved and
more fully appreciated for all yout
virtues and charms than ever before,
and that your ability to give and re
ceive happiness is unlimited. Then
use moments which you have been
accustomed to idle away or to employ
in melancholy thoughts, in improving
yourself. Let this improvement be
three-fold, until body and mind and
spirit all radiate new brilliancy.
Give your mind hew thoughts. Give
your spirit new aspirations, and feed
your brain with some new purpose.
Keep up whatever accomplishments
you possess; cultivate new ones. Be
gin at forty, fifty or sixty, even, to
study languages arid music and art.
And instead or continually thinking
about advancing age, think about in
creasing qualities and charms; instead
of worrying over added years, rejoice
over added occupations and means of
enjoyment. Encourage the young to
seek your society. Amuse and inter
