…for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Phil 4:11-13


I had a rough week.  I went off the Mental Diet (again) because we are still not in our house, my light switches are glitchy here in my rented apartment, and I’m really, really tired of cooking on a hotplate.  Poor me, right?  

And then I realized what I was doing and not doing.  I was allowing my old blueprint and ego to call the shots again.  I had gotten lazy and only read once a day and not three times as directed.  I was not consistent at writing down my three gratitudes and kindnesses.  No wonder my head was getting messed up again!  I wasn’t practicing the Law of Substitution!

Ok, back on track.  

Who would the person I want to become do today?

Well, I know she would be diligent about helping others without expectation.  She would be patient, kind, prepared, and neat.  She would be grateful and at peace.  She would look for the blessings of today and give thanks at all times.

Today, I am grateful that my husband changed the light bulb in my bathroom so that my old blind eyes could see better.

Today, I am grateful that the sunshine came out again after 3 days of gloomy skies and heavy rain.

Today, I am grateful that I can see my muscles starting to peek through, which means I am getting stronger.

Last night, I encouraged one of my friends who was feeling defeated, and I was rewarded by seeing her perk up and decide to fight her demons instead of give into them.  

Today, I had the privilege of helping someone who has to make her business work because her husband’s pay got cut in half.  

I really am blessed.
