My life is a precious gift. I celebrate each moment. I do things just for fun. I throw costume parties and potluck brunches. I chat with strangers and dive into messy art projects.

I surround myself with supportive family and friends. I block out time to stay connected with loved ones. I treat family dinners and lunch dates with former coworkers as top priorities. I give myself and others the opportunity to feel cared for and understood.

I develop healthy habits. I eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly. I sleep well and manage stress. I talk about my feelings instead of bottling them up or denying them.

I set goals. I give myself exciting targets to strive for.

I engage in meaningful work. My career aligns with my values and passions. I continue to learn and expand my skills. I collaborate with colleagues and share constructive feedback. I find satisfaction in thinking about how my efforts help others.

I express my gratitude. I make a list of the people and things that have enriched my life. I write thank you letters and accept favors graciously.

I forgive and move on. I develop compassion for others and myself. I believe in second chances.

I focus on the present moment. I let go of past regrets and worries about the future. I pay attention to what I am doing now.

Today, I remember that I already have what I need to live a happy and productive life. I dream big and work hard.
