Personal Best

I am grateful for who I am and the life I am leading.

My achievements and shortcomings are not tallied on a giant scorecard. But at times, I may become preoccupied with my personal goals and comparing myself to others. As I stop judging and start appreciating my efforts, the burden of incessant striving falls away.
When I see myself as God sees me, I am whole and perfect. I adopt this point of view, and I am released from the grip of my ego. I know that I am doing and being my best. By choosing to focus on all that is delightful, my life suddenly seems easier. I am moving forward rather than holding myself back. I am creating the life I desire, becoming more aware of my blessings and living in joy.

If then your whole body is full of light, with no part of it in darkness, it will be as full of light as when a lamp gives you light with its rays.--Luke 11:36.Inspired by this message? Want to talk to friends about it? Share your thoughts here.
