- May your joys be as bright as the morning, And your sorrows merely be shadows that fade, In the sunlight of love. May you have enough happiness to keep you sweet. Enough trials to keep you strong. Enough sorrows to keep you human. Enough hope to keep you happy. Enough failure to keep you humble. Enough success to keep you eager. Enough friends to give you comfort. Enough faith and courage in yourself to banish sadness. Enough wealth to meet your needs. And one thing more: enough determination to make each day a more wonderful day than the day before.
- As you grow in mindfulness, you take back your life. You begin to see how much time you lose in empty consumption. When we are consuming, we are also being consumed.
- If you're spending less time with old friends, and yet find that you're not making new ones, consider the people you see the most of at work or in daily life. Can you deepen these casual acquaintances? You may have subconsciously dismissed someone who, with a little attention, could become a true friend.
