A Start - by Leo Buscaglia



A Start
by Leo Buscaglia

Each day, I promise myself not to try to solve all my life problems at
once -- nor shall I expect you to do so;

Starting each day, I shall try to learn something new about me and
about you and about the world I live in, so that I may continue to
experience all things as if they had been newly born;

Starting each day, I shall remember to communicate my joy as well as
my despair, so that we can know each other better;

Starting each day, I shall remind myself to really listen to you and
to try to hear your point of view and to discover the
least-threatening way of giving you mine, remembering that we are both
growing and changing in a hundred different ways;

Starting each day, I shall remind myself that I am a human being and
not demand perfection of you until I am perfect, so you're safe;

Starting each day, I shall try to be more aware of the beautiful
things in our world -- I'll look at the flowers, I'll look at the
birds, I'll look at the children, I'll feel the cool breezes, I'll eat
good food -- and I'll share these things with you;

Starting each day, I shall remind myself to reach out and touch you,
gently, with my words, my eyes and with my fingers, because I don't
want to miss feeling you;

Starting each day, I shall dedicate myself again to the process of
being a lover -- and then see what happens;
You know, I'm really convinced that if you were to define love, the
only word big enough to engulf it all would be "Life" -- LOVE IS LIFE
-- in all its aspects ... And if you miss love, you miss life !

Please don't !
