• I cannot change the past but I can always do my best here and now.
• I do one thing at a time and pay full attention to everything I do.
• I cultivate silence and control the compulsion to interpret and qualify.
• Happiness is always here and now.
• Perfection is an illusion created by the mind. Instead I just try to do my best.
• I practice kindness towards myself and others.
