A Precious Human Life

Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to have woken up, I am 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 toward others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others, I am going to benefit others as much as I can.

I love the quotes from the Dalai Lama; he has such wisdom, presented in an easy to understand fashion---timeless and beyond denominational lines.
Thank you for this quote of his!

XXOO~~

Truly wonderful words to live by. I can honestly say that I am so grateful for every precious day - it is sometimes so easy to get focused on the big stuff - when we really should just stop to see the rainbows~

Thanks Audrey. I need to write this down, maybe post it on the ceiling above my bed so I am reminded of it first thing in the morning.

Hope you are having a good weekend.
