What I give to life returns to me. I choose to give and live with joy in my heart, pursuing my passions and purpose.

If I should feel anxious or overly concerned about the day ahead, I know I’m not giving it a chance to reveal the good that is in store for me. I set an intention to start my day with positive thoughts, words, and practices.

I can begin with a quiet time of prayer or listen to soothing music. I can repeat a meaningful affirmation. I can look in the mirror and smile. These activities establish positive expectations in my mind and heart.

I dedicate myself to this day with joy in my heart and laughter on my lips—enthusiastic to begin each new venture.

Whatever your task, put yourselves into it.—Colossians 3:23
