Today I received a newsletter that reprinted a poem by the Dalai Lama. I’d like to share it with you here. Imagine what kind of day you could have with thoughts like these filling your mind!
A Precious Human Life
Today I am fortunate
I am alive,
I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use all my energies
I am going to have kind thoughts towards others.
I am not going to get angry,
I am going to benefit others

Sure beats waking up and thinking “I really don’t want to go to work today”, doesn’t it?
