IF THE ONLY PRAYER YOU SAID IN YOUR LIFE WAS "THANK YOU", THAT WOULD SUFFICE. ~Meister Eckhart

Take heart; it came to pass, it didn't come to stay. ~Unknown

Today I am grateful...
  • for sober laughter. Things that are funny, and there are a lot of them, just seem so much funnier now.
  • for a double meeting and triple fellowship Wednesday
  • that I feel pretty comfortable in my skin these days
  • that I got registered for the 2010 International Convention in San Antonio and got my hotel room, a nice one, with a river view
  • that my life just seems to be so stunning at times

Low self-esteem-- and all the ways it manifests-- becomes a way of coping with painful events. We look around and see all the people who don't appear to have our level of problems, so we may conclude, "There's something wrong with me." Although adapting a posture of low self-esteem might have been a way of surviving pain, that time has passed. It's time to replace low self-esteem with new perspectives. Stop coping with events by devaluing yourself. Instead, respond to life by loving and taking care of yourself. ~More Language of Letting Go

To humbly view your own life as stunning is a magical gift. We could see it all along!

So many good things in this post today. Great quotes and the fact that things are funny, although some days I need a little distance from the situation to see that.
