I Can See Clearly Now

Optimist Karaoke

"I Can See Clearly Now," with clips from the movie Cool Runnings, has been declared the official Optimist song for 2007-2008. Won't you join us in an Optimist sing-along?

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day

Oh yes I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I've been prayin' for
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day

Look all around, there's nothin' but blue skies
Look straight ahead, nothin' but blue skies

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone
I can see all obstacles in my way
Here is the rainbow I've been prayin' for
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright) Sun-Shiny day

Optimist Creed

A lot of people try to claim the Optimist Creed as their very own. Written by Christian Larson, the Optimist Creed has been a part of Optimist International since 1922. Optimist Clubs recite this creed any time they gather. Optimist members support optimism as a way of life.

Please enjoy our favorite, uplifting words:

Promise yourself ~
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism com true.
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 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.
