When my son Mark was young, a neighbor have him an old army helmet.  He had big feet, ant towing out, with the helmet on, he would do a very convincing imitation of Here is a touching poem Chaplin wrote when he was 79 years old, which makes a good New Year's resolution too..  Here is a touching poem Chaplin wrote when he was 79 years old, which makes a good New Year's resolution too.

When I Began to Love Myself

When I started loving myself I understood that I’m always and at any given opportunity in the right place at the right time.
And I understood that all that happens is right – from then on I could be calm.
Today I know: It’s called TRUST.

When I started to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody when I tried to force my desires on this person,
E
ven though I knew the time is not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me.
Today I know: It’s called LETTING GO

When I started loving myself could recognize that emotional pain and grief are just warnings for me to not live against my own truth.
Today I know: It’s called AUTHENTICALLY BEING.

When iI started loving myself I stopped longing for another life
And could see that everything around me was a request to grow.
Today I know: It’s called MATURITY.

When I started loving myself I stopped depriving myself of my free time and stopped sketching further magnificent projects for the future.
Today I only do what’s fun and joy for me, what I love and what makes my heart laugh, in my own way and in my tempo.
Today I know: it’s called HONESTY.

When I started loving myself I escaped from all what wasn’t healthy for me, from dishes, people, things, situations and from everything pulling me down and away from myself.
In the beginning I called it
“healthy egoism”,
Bu today I know: it’s called SELF-LOVE.

When I started loving myself I stopped wanting to be always right thus I’ve been less wrong.
Today I’ve recognized: it’s called HUMBLENESS.

When I started loving myself I refused to live further in the past and worry about my future.
Now I live only at this moment where EVERYTHING takes place,
Llike this I live every day and I call it CONSCIOUSNESS.

When I started loving myself I recognized, that my thinking can make me miserable and sick.
When I requested for my heart forces, my mind got an important partner.
Today I call this connection HEART WISDOM.

We do not need to fear further discussions, conflicts and problems with ourselves and others
S
ince even stars sometimes bang on each other and create new worlds.
Today I know: THIS IS LIFE!
