Ponderings for the Day:
If I am troubled, worried, exasperated or frustrated, do I tend to rationalize the situation and lay the blame on someone else? When I am in such a state, is my conversation punctuated with, “He said.” …. “She said.” ….. “They did.” ??? Or can I honestly admit that perhaps I’m at fault. My peace of mind depends on overcoming my negative attitudes and tendency toward rationalization. Will I try, day by day, to be rigorously honest with myself and change, or stay stuck on negative mindsets and remain miserable?
Today I pray ~
May I catch myself as I talk in the third person, “He said…” or …..”They promised …” or “she said she would …” and instead listen for the blaming that has become such a pattern for me and preserves delusion. May I do a turnabout and face myself instead ….then may I seek my Creator and seek peace against these thoughts ….
Today I will remember: honesty is the best policy!
