This day unfolds beneath your lucky star;
Whate’er you try will likely turn out well.
Good fortune may continue for a spell,
So long as you don’t think it’s who you are.
Be generous today with friend and foe;
Cooperate with others, do your part.
Breathe in, let gratitude open your heart—
Breathe out, and blessings effortlessly flow.
In life’s abundance, cultivate your soul.
Resist temptation to relax and glide.
The discipline that helped you reach this day,
Continued now, will consummate the whole.
The wind is at your back—enjoy the ride;
The sun is shining—run outdoors and play!
