Today I will not exchange cross words, not scowl at strangers on the pavement when they block my way. I will not let frustration get the better of me, nor allow negative thoughts to cloud the vista of my being. I will not judge, but rather accept that all things and all beings are as they are and as they should be.
Today I will take time to be thankful for each and every blessing that has been bestowed upon me. I will open my eyes to possibilities, shed doubt and regret like unwanted garments on a hot summer’s day. I shall rejoice for all that’s beautiful in the world, instead of wallowing in all that is bad.
And, most of all, today I will look up at the bright blue sky, think of the wonderful souls who have gone before us and who watch over us still, and I will smile.
