REFLECTION FOR TODAY

I spent a good share of my life feeling inferior to others. Because of this feeling, I continually compared myself with them. I compared my weaknesses with their strengths and, of course, I fell short. Once I learned that comparing myself was a copout for not developing my own creativity and talents, it became easier to let go of this defense. Becoming willing to let go of my comparing has opened me to creativity and talent I never dreamed I had.


MEDITATION FOR TODAY

If I begin to compare myself to someone else, give me a little push.


TODAY I WILL REMEMBER

I have a great deal to offer by just being me.

IMPORTANT REMINDER

JULY 5

REFLECTION FOR TODAY

Love make me vulnerable. When I love someone, I grow close to him or her. This person can see my soft spots and knows what hurts me. I have hurt so much already I do not want to hurt anymore, so I start to back off, hoping if I keep a safe distance I will cut down my chances of getting hurt. I also limit my chances of finding intimate relationships. I could end up living in a superficial, noncommittal environment where caring and sharing would only be words. Being close to someone is a risk, but it is also a delight. The person who know what really hurts me is also the person who knows what makes me happy and how to put a sparkle in my eye, a spring in my step, and a song in my heart. The distance I keep between myself and my loved ones keeps out hurt but also keeps out joy.


MEDITATION FOR TODAY

Give me the courage to get close enough to take a chance on getting joy into my life.


TODAY I WILL REMEMBER

I can keep out hurt, but I can also keep out joy.
