“Worth While” Poem Printable {Plus eShakti Review}

Hi friends! It’s great to have you here today. I hope you are doing well, and if you aren’t then I’m here to give you a boost! I was feeling overwhelmed the other day (that seems to be happening a lot lately, haha), and I decided to read my favorite poem (Worth While by Ella Wheeler Wilcox) in order to cheer myself up and get motivated. Once I did, I took one deep breath and felt so much better. So, that’s why, today, I’ve decided to share an uplifting message with this “Worth While” Poem Printable.
The poem reads:

It is easy enough to be pleasant,
When life flows by like a song,
But the man worth while is one who will smile,
When everything goes dead wrong.
For the test of the heart is trouble,
And it always comes with the years,
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth
Is the smile that shines through tears.

It is easy enough to be prudent,
When nothing tempts you to stray,
When without or within no voice of sin
Is luring your soul away;
But it’s only a negative virtue
Until it is tried by fire,
And the life that is worth the honor of earth
Is the one that resists desire.

By the cynic, the sad, the fallen,
Who had no strength for the strife,
The world’s highway is cumbered to-day;
They make up the sum of life.
But the virtue that conquers passion,
And the sorrow that hides in a smile,
It is these that are worth the homage on earth
For we find them but once in a while.

Isn’t that just beautiful!? I just love encouraging messages like that. It’s a good reminder that, although things can get rough, if you can keep you head held high, you can get through it.
Now, do you want to know how I was introduced to this poem? Let me tell ya, it’s pretty random. I actually saw the first four lines of this poem printed on a plaque at (any guesses?) The Tower of Terror—that’s right, that spooky, elevator-dropping, stomach-turning, theme park ride in California Adventure. (It’s in the boiler room, top floor incase you want to find it next time you are there.) Just goes to show you that you never know what you can find when you take time to slow down and just take in your surroundings…which is pretty easy to do when you’re waiting in a line for a ride.
So, enjoy the design—print it out and hang it in your bedroom, bathroom, boiler room—wherever it will be the most motivational for you. It’s a good one to keep in mind.

eShakti Review

Disclaimer: I received this product for free in exchange for writing this review. However, all opinions are my own.
     Today I also have another treat for you! Take a look at this beautiful dress:
     That’s right, soak it all in—isn’t it lovely!
     Ok, so something you should know about me it that I LOVE 50’s/60’s style dresses. Collars, buttons, cinched waist—divine! So, that’s why when I saw this particular dress it was calling my name.
     Now, here’s the cool thing about eShakti, their clothes are customizable! So, if you see something you like, but you wish it were longer, or the sleeves were different, no worries. If you find a dress you LIKE, you can turn it into a dress you LOVE using their handy customization tools. Here’s an example:

1. Found a Super Cute Dress!

…but how do I know it’s going to fit me right? And I’d like it to have sleeves.

2. Pick Out Your Size Using Their Detailed Sizing Table

And you even include your height to make it more accurate. This was a huge thing for me, because I am 5′ 9″ but a size 4, so I have a really hard time finding dresses in my size that aren’t mini skirts!

3. What Kind of Sleeves Would You Like?

Seriously, look at all the options! How rad is that!?

4. Pick Your Skirt Length

I love dresses that go mid-calf length for church, but always have a hard time finding them—not anymore.

5. Even More Ways to Customize

Some of the dresses even have options for the neckline! And if you don’t want pockets (personally my favorite feature, but to each their own), you can have them removed as well and any embroidery.


     Your dress comes just the way YOU want it. So, if your in need of a beautiful dress that fits your size, shape, and style, I would definitely give eShakti a try!

Happy crafting, and happy shopping!
