This powerful and simple affirmation reminds us that day is not a day to just “ride it out”, it is a day to make a contribution to life. A contribution to life does not have to be planting a tree everyday, or saving a life. A contribution to life can be a contribution to your life or someone else’s.
Making the decision, the moment your body awakens, to be happy and do good. From the 8 pillars of yoga – do good, be good, feel good. Doing good by being gentle and careful with yourself and others. Be good by loving all things, and doing no harm. Lastly, feel good by doing things that nourish and rejuvenate the body. So today, make the decision to do good and bring a positive contribution to this life.
