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

I am still learning. ~Michelangelo’s motto

Today I am grateful…

  • to have slept until 8:20 this morning. I made it to the Came to Believe meeting and did not fret about posting.
  • for breakfast fellowship afterward and a short, cold meeting with a sponsee
  • that tomorrow morning we have a meeting with a new client. Great way to start the new year!
  • for today’s meeting about self-esteem and that I have more of it than I have ever had in this lifetime
  • for the indispensables: honesty, open-mindedness and willingness

New Years at the Brandenburg Gate (extraordinary!)

Even when it hurts like hell, hold fast. The pain is the arrow coming out, not the arrow going in. Faith is not about trusting a God who will rescue you from arrows but trusting in the process. Faith will center you, not rescue you. ~Pocket Sponsor

Was cold the attitude or the temperature?

Temperature, sitting outside.

I've been to the Brandenburg Gate--when an East German flag flew from the top, and after, when the flag came down.

Next time, sit inside. Unless you're at the Brandenburg Gate, in which case you might want to watch the fireworks.

LOL Mary-I was thinking the same thing.
I hope your new client has money to burn!

Honesty, Open-mindedness, and Willingness...that's how it's done.

May your new client give commissioned work to everyone he knows!

Namaste

I really like that quote about faith and the arrow. That is worth remembering.

I really like how you started the post--Michelangelo’s motto. Something I take into the New Year with me--stay humble, open and patient to learn more from every encounter.

That arrow can be a real pain. Sometimes we don't want to pull it out.
