I went through a bit of a gloomy spell for a few months, where most of the words I put out had a rant’s tone to them. I stepped back, reassessed, and pointed myself back to a more positive place. It’s from this more positive place that I read your post and say, “Amen.” The better I give, the better I get.
We sure shall Mark!! You can count on that:-)
That’s a big ditto for me. Knowing you and The Team are out there in the world, making it a better place— that’s a huge sustaining influence for me, Tracey.
Merry Christmas, God bless, let’s do it all again next year!! : )
Thanks so much Mark, yes, the same truths, different days:-) The truth never gets old! And i had never heard the 1000 mirror parable until last month!! I was reading a manuscript someone sent us and there it was:-) After reading about it online, i think you and I were the only two that hadn’t heard of it:) As long as I’m in good company it’s all good! Please know that making your acquaintance and friendship was one of the top blessings of this year for me:-) have a very merry Christmas Mark! We’ll be with you in spirit.
I’d never heard that wonderful story of the 1000 Mirrors, but it sure made me bark and wave my tail!
I know it’s all true, and I see you got in the old “You wouldn’t eat garbage, would you? Why fill your mind with it?” and the old “You’re known by the company you keep, don’t hang out with people who just want to drag you down to their level”— only you said it in a much more appealing way.
Just wonderful, Tracey, and no one embodies said wisdom better than yourself, thanks for your ongoing good example. : )
Amen indeed Deborah, very well said! Been there, done that. Sometimes for years at a time! I grew up always hearing stuff like this, but until you put it into place, and that takes work as you know, you don’t see the power to make the change is all within the individual.
