Out of self-hatred we refuse to feed ourselves positive energy.
We could say to ourselves: Yes, we can do anything: we can learn, we can practice and improve.
We have made mistakes yesterday and again today, but there is tomorrow.
It is not too late—we could still make a difference.
We have a wonderful opportunity living in a free country where we can try anything, think anything, be anything.
At this period of time in this place, the opportunities are wide open.
We have no terrible physical or mental misfortune, we have basic needs taken care of.
Imagine how creative and satisfying our lives could become!
