I got into this beautiful jewelry shop and I was lost in admiration of the glistering  jewelries displayed on the glass shelves. While I kept asking for the prices of almost all that caught my attention, I noticed that inasmuch as the shelves were not so close to customer's reach, they were still safeguarded with locks. Finally, I settled for a set  though the price almost made me go for something less, but then my mind was made up to buy something good for myself.  After all, I was gifting Me for hard-work. So I paid.
The attendant with a smile quickly packaged my new jewelries in an attractive branded box that also looked beautiful but was gotten from a stack of mini boxes neatly kept in a corner of the shop. Then I said to myself, this can also be applied to living. The jewelries and the boxes are both items in the shop. One is tightly secured because of its worth. The other was also safeguarded for proper stock taking and they all looked good from a distance. Lesson learnt, hard-work is not easy. Consistent self-improvement and development is not cheap anywhere. It demands your time, resources, even strength in some cases. We may all look alike on the outside from a distance, but it is content and quality that differentiates us. The values you preference  and you are willing to sacrifice for today, will determine you worth tomorrow. You can either be the gold or the gold-box it's a matter of choice.

Failure smile with a stern look Beckons on my deflated ego Whispers the blatant questions What have you learnt? Go, try again
I am not afraid to try again If I didn’t make a move I wouldn’t have If I had stayed same I wouldn’t have If I wasn’t thirsty for a change I wouldn’t have
I will try again Sure I learnt I am not afraid to try again
Not ashamed to try again For in that failure I have learnt not to do it that way again Discovered that failure is a ticket to try again Ticket to do it better Not a ticket to give up
Missing my steps and facing its bruises I have learnt to be careful the next time If I never tried I wouldn’t have known better Failure is not a death sentence to my dreams But a live wire to a better me
I choose to see the bright side of it I choose to count my losses for good I choose to make them a part of my success story I will try again

Peace of mind When I have done all I know to do All I need to do All I can do All I am meant to do
Peace of mind When I have said the truth Stood by the truth Stood for what is right
Peace of mind When I have played my part Given my best Given my all
Peace of mind When I have worked in love Shared my heart Shared my moments
Peace of Mind When I am at peace with all men Peace with all things Peace with Me
Peace of mind When my heart is right with my Maker I do His will He speaks to me
Peace of mind When I know all things are working together for my good
Peace of mind
