butterfly III

by Mary Ann Radmacher

Because I call it challenge rather than crisis;

because I look at hardship as opportunity instead of obstacle;

because, at the end of a matter, I ask,
“What will I learn from this to make me better?”;

because I take a deep breath and do the difficult thing first;

because my courage does not depend on the weather,
the economic forecast or the winds of whim;

because I know the most significant elements in my day
are laughter, learning and applying my efforts
to each endeavor;

because of these things each morning is a pleasure
and every day passed is a success.
