A dear friend of mine once told me once, “You cannot save your butt, and save your face at the same time.” The same thing applies if you hands are full holding onto the past, being a victim, being right, being misunderstood, not letting things go, your hands are full and there is not room for the wonderful gifts the Universe has for you.
My Morning meditation is to NOT be one of those people who only embraces the TRUTH AND CHANGE as a quick fix vehicle to get their butt out of a sling, I pray my intent is far more sincere than that. I want my path to sustain me in the difficult times as well. It is not just a fashion statement And if people you love are not there yet be patient. Some times that journey takes time, but never give up on them, You may have to do it from a distance but it is so important.
People have the mistaken idea that they are only of value when they are at the top of their game or most productive. However the opposite is true and they should be embraced because they have survived and weathered the storm, that must be recognized and honored. That is what makes us humane human beings, and becoming one takes effort and consistency.
