“Let the first act of every morning be to make the following resolve for the day:
– I shall not fear anyone on Earth.
– I shall fear only God.
– I shall not bear ill will toward anyone.
– I shall not submit to injustice from anyone.
– I shall conquer untruth by truth. And in resisting untruth, I shall put up with all suffering.”
As tonight settles in, we have a gift waiting for us.
When you turn off the bedroom light, use that “click” as a reminder
that no matter how you’re feeling physically, emotionally or spiritually
right this minute, you have every right and every reason to be hopeful
about more love, more peace and more opportunities
to share who you are with the world.
When our heads finally hit the pillows tonight,
let’s think about the people we love, those nearby, those far away
and those who are sweet memories that will linger forever.
Remembering each with a smile is a way to count your blessings
and invite sleep to gently find you.
