When we take life too seriously, the result is total misery. We position a disproportionate amount of energy on our own self-importance. We must learn to live within the confines of this imperfect world. For too long, we made ourselves a victim. We couldn’t interact with others without getting angry and developing resentments. We expected everyone to revolve around us because we felt the world owed us. The result was unhappiness.
Today, I will ask for guidance in taking responsibility for my life and ownership of my behavior. I will pause when I am about to react to irritations and respond as though I’m speaking with my Higher Power.
