Here is my wish for you and

every other child, woman and

man on the face of the earth:

Spend one week

saying only kind,

caring things

to yourself.

Say thank-you

at least ten times an hour

--direct five toward yourself

and five to the world at large.

Compliment yourself

(and others)

each time an effort is made.

Notice all the wonderful qualities

and characteristics about yourself

and those around you.

One week.

You will never go back.

And your whole life will be

a glorious meditation.
