Every day, think as you wake up:
Today I am fortunate to have woken up alive. 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 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, Morning Prayer
