Let the first act of every morning be . . .


“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.”

~Mahatma Gandhi

So choose loving, hopeful thoughts


The last things we think about and talk about
before we fall asleep, stay with us as we sleep.
So choose loving, hopeful thoughts dear friends.

And you shall sleep restful nights.


“Let books be your dining table,
And you shall be full of delights
Let them be your mattress
And you shall sleep restful nights.”

~Unknown Friend, that falls into a great book

. . . and then when you get into bed . . .


During the daylight hours focus on making good things happen
and then when you get into bed
leave the rest up to the Universe.

As tonight settles in . . .


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.

. . . at the day’s end


“When I stand before Thee at the day’s end,
thou shalt see my scars
and know that I had my wounds
and also my healing.”

•Rabindranath Tagore

When our heads finally hit the pillows tonight . . .


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.
