My Goal of the Day: To be as fully present in each moment as I can.
My Thought of the Day: Everything always works out.
My Action of the Day: To imbue all action with love and gratitude.
My Deed of the Day: If I’m taking action from love, the bigger question is how can I be of service in this moment?
My Tip of the Day: Try to laugh more and not take any of it too seriously. Always contextualize: The planet has been around for 4.5 billion years (!) – our time on this earth is really inconsequential in the big scheme of things.
