To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

I have enjoyed yours posts alot Gratitude, what a wonderful user name! I've thought a zillion times of leaving here but my addiction appears to have too much of ahold on me. My normally clean house has suffered a bit & so has my cooking.... my poor family.
It is funny.... I have thought just like you, if I posted saying Goodbye... I would be back and look stupid. I have watched 2 other regulars do that (I won't name names)....they are loved here very much and very helpful... so just saying....if you do come back...you won't be the 1st who said "Goodbye".... but had withdrawl so bad...you was back on here reading more threads & jumping back in! I think it is a normal occurance.
It happens to the best of us. Ha ha
If you have the will power to stay away... I envy it ! ...I need some of that myself !
