A Day At A Time

Reflection For The Day

I believe today that I have a right to make spiritual progress.  I have a right to be emotionally mature.  I have a right to take pleasure in my own company, and that makes me more pleasant to be with.  I also have a right to become willing — deeply willing, entirely willing – to make amends to all those I’ve harmed.  Because I can now accept myself the way I am, I can accept other people the way they are — no entirely, but to a much greater degree than in the past.  Have I begun to make friends with God, and thus with myself?

Today I Pray

May God show me that it’s okay to like myself, even while trying to repair old wrongs and rebuild from splinters.  May I keep telling myself that I am different now, I have changed.  I am a better and wiser and healthier person, I have made some good choices.  As this “new person,” may I find it easier to make atonement for what happened long ago and in another spiritual place.  May those I have wronged also find it easier to accept my amends.

Today I Will Remember

It’s okay to like myself.
