From the Daily Om, comes this gem:
Not What You Do
It's from an article about "Becoming Your Wrong Decisions," And talks about how "there are no true right or wrong decisions. All decisions contribute to your development and are an integral part of your evolving existence yet they are still separate from the self. A decision that does not result in its intended outcome is in no way an illustration of character. Still, it can have dire effects on our ability to trust ourselves and our self-esteem.
A perceived mistake becomes a valuable learning experience and is, in essence, a gift to learn and grow from."
For today's focus, lets make a list (short or long) of the labels we apply to ourselves. A series of "I am" statements. Once you've got the list made, go back over it and find every negative statement and rewrite it in a positive way. Now ask yourself, "Who am I really?" And if you come up with that answer ... WOW!
