Only do things that make the world a more compassionate place.

Wow… This is a lot for day 2… I might have to go back and do it again… I have been existing not living… I have no structure…

Thank you for this article. I’m thankful to know that I’m not the only one who feels these routines as important to feel centered before the bustle of the day begins.

I am passionate about compassion and LOVE these morning routine suggestions. Cannot wait to finish this entry and begin. (Today I may have already slipped and checked my email as I was excited to see what today’s assignment would be!) As a perfectionist who is self-critical when things are not … well, perfect – I will make a slight shift in the meditation part of the exercise – substituting Happy dream and Happy day instead of Perfect dream and Perfect day. Laura, THANK YOU for such a beautiful framework to start my day!

I commit to practice my morning ritual daily, and also at night. Will watch my thoughts carefully during the day.

Balance, commitments (try not to make them), organization, structure…I know everything Laura has just said seems like a lot but I also know it works. So why don’t I do it? I am going to make day 2 my day 3. I deserve it, I need to own it. I am preparing my journal my unused spine post- setting coffee and tomorrow I hope to have a new start. I took down FB page. Nonsense in my town. Need to be good to me and my Dad. 3 years since the loss of my Mom and it is time to move it forward like she would want. Wish me positive thoughts and I will you all. O, the forgiveness thing, I am owed an apology but for all the life of me don’t owe one…I will wish her a better sense of self w no grudge. Hope it helps her.
