This is how a good life begins:
I believe I’m worthy of and ask Divine Guidance for it.
This is how good things begin:
I meditate first, then do the work for them.
This is how a good day begins:
I give thanks for everything and pray all beings are at ease.
This is how good times with everyone begin:
I smile at and vow to be of benefit to them all.
This is how good health begins:
I take in my greens, rest, and repeat as needed.
This is how good momentum begins:
I put on my shoes and walk, run, or crazy-dance.
This is how a good attitude begins:
I trust myself in all things and adjust accordingly.
This is how good work begins:
I plan a little, then do as much as I can.
This is how meaningful service begins:
I know myself and my gifts and give them back to the world.
This is how changing the world begins:
I accept and love all that I am, however I am.
This is how the love of a lifetime begins:
I love myself so fiercely I can’t help but do the same for all.
And this is how all good things begin:
I always (always!) begin again.
