May my struggles make me a better person,
a person who shows compassion,
one who never forgets to be grateful for the wonder of life.
May I see the good in others and the world,
no matter how much darkness calls.
May I keep an open mind in an angry world,
and see beauty where it is least likely found.
May I say a prayer of thanksgiving every morning I am fortunate enough to awake to a new day,
and may I allow gratitude to guide me every step of the way.
