Wake up in the morning and open your eyes wide. See the beauty in the world, smile and give thanks. See the ugly in the world, weep; then refuse to let it win. Do this and a life will be lived.

The Sun Will Come Out

The world turns and so the sun sets. Soon tomorrow will come out of the darkness. Light will shine on a new day. Then, tomorrow will come and go.
So, find someone to love, treat them well and keep them close. Find a flower in a park, pluck it from the earth and put it in your pocket. Hear a friend in need, scratch your day plans and humbly answer their call. Buy a cookie, break it in half and eat it slowly. Find time, put it aside and use it wisely.
Hug your relatives, compliment your enemies and laugh at yourself. Try a new recipe, take a different road and pick up someone else's trash. Witness a miracle, take a picture and keep it quiet.
Do something people think you can’t do. Work hard; then play without remorse. Do jumping jacks in public. Dance in public. Be nice in public. Better yet, be nice in general.
Don't criticize or belittle your loved ones. Don't cuss at food workers or honk your car horn. Don't be too hard on yourself, take a deep breath and don't rush.
Tomorrow will come and go. The world will turn. The calendar on your wall will find its way into the trash. All the while, life will keep you distracted. You'll look back and ask, where did the time go?
So, find someone to love, treat them well and keep them close.
