I will resist the temptation to turn on myself when my better common sense wins out over what my heart senses. I will play the cards I am dealt and reshuffle as needed leaving out the JOKERS when the writing is on the wall that I am playing a losing hand.
I will be liberal with my kindness, discerning with my naïveté, and guarded in my willingness to marry kindness and naïveté together toward others.
I will begin each prayer with thank you. I will end each prayer the same.
When I meet the eyes of others I want mine to always say, "I wish you well."
This is my declaration.
