I haven't "written" down any new year's resolutions as I used to years ago. I know what I am aiming for though...to maintain an attitude of gratitude for one...in ALL situations. Crazy, you say? At least I am keeping it as part of my focus.
Then there's being more laid back (i.e. being more patient). Now I'm thinking this is really gonna put me to the test. Have you ever noticed how, if you pray for patience, you are suddenly surrounded by seemingly impossible "patience" situations? It's kind of like a bad joke!
"...Dear Lord, please grant me patience when I am dealing with "person X', the neighbor across the way..." and that very day, "person X" walks their dog over to your newly landscaped front lawn and lets the animal christen every new tree, plant, flower, etc. in broad daylight!
I send you gentle hugs on the wings of an angel.... Be kinder to yourself in 2010...Love yourself more...Remember to use the gifts you were given...Believe in yourself and in the power of Love that surrounds you.
