As we courageously work to become truly ourselves, each new day presents us with opportunities to unfold in the perfectly right way. A teacher of mine once said that, "the future depends on a healed past and a well-lived present."
We create a fulfilling future, and honor our present, by living this day in a practice that will enable us to look back tomorrow with pride. Each day we can learn, from whatever sources inspire us, to love ourselves just as we are – unfinished and still struggling – and to live with our families, coworkers, and friends as a kind and considerate equal. A kaleidoscope of talents, crafts and abilities we each bring to this life are uniquely ours, and we are welcomed and invited to share them with others in our own special way.
We are one of a kind. Our individuality is a divine gift - too sacred to throw away. It is our right, privilege, and responsibility to be ourselves today.
