Just for fun, here’s my reversible life script. Read it the normal way, then scroll back up and read it in reverse when you reach the last line.
How do I want to live?
My thoughts and words create my reality
Take every opportunity to say “I love you”
Create joyful moments with those you love
A balanced life embraces both work and play
Partake of and share the abundance of the earth
I have been blessed and will bless others
I will remember to love myself
(now scroll back up and read the lines in reverse order)
Your life script?
