Redesigning the self…

“Our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world,
as in being able to remake ourselves. “ Mohandas K. Gandhi

 

Good morning! I love the simple wisdom in this quote by Gandhi. Many times we try to remake the external world around us, forgetting that the place we have the most influence is in our own lives. Frustration comes from trying to change the external; greatness comes from remaking ourselves, our attitudes and our reactions.

  1. I am working very hard at this time in my life to let go of what causes me to have negative feelings and do focus on the positive aspects in my life. I have been blessed many times over and it is through those blessings that I need to focus on for peace. I’ve also realized that it is through Action and Doing that happiness occurs. Even if it is doing something difficult or not a favored project such as housework, when any project is complete, there is a sense of happiness so I am also focusing on creating action in my life.
    Thanks for all your “Good Mornings.” I know something great will happen to me today!

  2. This rings true for me. I have an autistic child, and I must admit that my attitude has been one of worry instead of one of victory. I now realize to best help my son, I must redesign my thinking.
