Inspiration for the Day
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.
Meditation for the Day
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.
