Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.
~ Dalai Lama XIVGood words to keep in my mind as we leave one year behind and say hello to a new one. Here's to 2013 - may it treat us well, and may we return the favor.
Happy New Year!
