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.

Pauline Apilado

Pauline Apilado lived her dream jobs, writing and editing articles for lifestyle print magazines Lifestyle Asia and Inflight, and contributing to the Philippine editions of Entrepreneur and Marie Claire. Decades of living with anxiety and depressive episodes caught up with her though and forced her to switch her writing focus from other people’s lifestyles to her own heart-style. She’s currently decluttering her mind and enjoying life more now by just meditating, soaking in nature during her walks, eating vegetarian meals, journaling, listening deeply, and crazy-dancing to her favorite songs, playing with her five cats and two dogs, napping and taking tea breaks, volunteering with her Buddhist sangha, and visiting places that move her. Join her on her two Facebook pages: Loving & Creating, and Journeying & Being.
