Good morning dear reader, I can be wordy, I know =^_^= however, this morning I found myself stuck on the two quotes I’ve posted here. My prayer this morning was from an International publications book, called Prayers for good times and bad. It goes like this.
“Please, Comforting Spirit, show me what it means to let go the hope that others will be my cure.
You Great physician, are my healer in this quiet hour”.
Sometimes I think I lead a very sheltered life. I had not seen or heard this quote before. the movie it comes from I’ve heard about, know about, yet this quote has eluded me … now it jumps out at me. My progress in life, comes in many forms the joys I have discovered in the transformation process have been many. Think about where you are today, are you happy, does everyday bring a new experience for you to delight in? Can you say you are genuinely happy…… I’ve come to realize that even in the moments where I’m grumbling and complaining.. yes… wonders on wonders.. I do find myself having such moments. I’m doing so, because at that given moment, it is what I need to do, vent or moan, groan, it is my way of dealing with inner distress/conflict…. it 99% of the time has nothing to do with anyone else, but my SELF. I am the only one who can make changes in my life, or who has control on how I feel or think. Some “true” friend once said to me .”own it” at the time I don’t know that I appreciated these words being hurled at me.. But I’ve never forgotten them, and he will always be a part of me for having had the inner strength to speak out honestly to me. It was my behavior he was addressing. Mine.
Strive each and every day to improve yourself – it is never too late to change the road you are on, or to simply stop and enjoy where you are.
Don’t reserve your best behavior for special occasions. Walk in sunshine, today and always …blessings…. Oyashikiri
