Dear Source, Thank you for this new day, it’s beauty and light. Thank you for helping me leave yesterday behind to focus on today - this minute - here and now. Thank you for reminding me that I am loved and that I needed to experience everything in my past to get where I am going. Thank you for teaching me that no one is better than me - and that I'm no better than anyone else. Also, that I am fundamentally good, fundamentally whole and worthy. Remind me of healthy boundaries: not just my own but the importance of respecting others boundaries as well. Today I am responsible for my efforts, not the outcome of my efforts. I will do the best I can with what I have. Remind me often that I am an actor, not the director. I need not carry the weight of the world on my shoulders because I don't control what happens. When I am acting tough and strong - I am scared: remind me that it takes courage to be vulnerable and soft. I trust my inner voice and know that only by following it will I be at peace. I will endeavor to stop being a human doing and rest. My unrelenting standards are hurting me and there is no such thing as perfection. Please remind me often to live in the gray - to go easier - and be of service where I can. Remind me often to laugh at myself and not take myself too seriously. Thank you for reminding me that I have a fully functioning body and fully functioning organs and they need to be respected and nurtured. I accept that some things will get worse before they get better. Remind me to sit with my negative feelings and experience them: stuffing them makes things so much worse. ”What am I feeling?" "Is there a story I am telling myself that is making me feel even worse? May those I love be happy, safe, healthy and at peace. May I be safe, healthy, at peace and unafraid to be happy.
