Am I resistant to the events, the situations, the many people who come into my life that block the growth I am offered every day? While learning to love myself, I’m seeing it is good for me to pause, reflect, and see if I’m standing in my own way.
Every moment of every day offers me a gift—the gift of awareness of other persons, awareness of my natural surroundings, awareness of my own personal impact on creation. As I expand my perspective, understanding my connectedness and impact on the day-to-day of my life, I am hopeful. With this awareness comes my growth and I can pray for others’ increased awareness as well.
The mind commands the body and is instantly obeyed. The mind that commands itself and meets resistance.St Augustine of Hippo
Thank You Lord for helping me see how daily growing leads my heart to soften and be filled with hope.
