I do believe that life has meaning

I believe that each day of my life has meaning and value

Each day is a wonderful gift

Each day passed is gone forever

Each day in the future is yet to be

Today is what matters most of all

The breath that I take ,the food that I eat,the sites that i see

To make today the best day of my life,is what matters most of all.

To blank out the agonies and ecstasy of the past

To shut out the fears of the future

To be enamored by the beauty of the earth

To be overwhelmed by the enchanting sun shine

To be humbled by the enormous ocean

To be enthralled by the trees of the forest

To be touched by a smile

I believe compassion is all important

I believe that I am no better than the forces around me
