Keep it Simple

Self-pity is one of the most dangerous forms of self-centeredness. It fogs our vision.  —Kathy S.—
Sometimes we get stuck in our own way of seeing things. We may feel as if everything that happens, happens to us

or for us. If it rains, we may think about our ruined picnic and not about the dry fields that need the rain. We need to focus on the big picture. This keeps us from becoming self-centered. If it rains, we’ll gather indoors and be glad for the farmers. When we do our part, things go well. When we don’t we feel it. Everything else feels it too. Self pity keeps us from doing our part.
Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, help me see myself as a big part of the picture. My job is just is to do my part.
Action for the Day:  Today, I’ll think about how I fit in with my Higher Power, my family, the place I work, my community. Do I do my part?

For Us, It Is A Result Of The Promises, We Are Grateful.

If we are painstaking about this phase of our development, we will be amazed before we are half way through. We are going to know a new freedom and a new happiness. We will not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace. No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others. That feeling of uselessness and self pity will disappear. We will lose interest in selfish things and gain interest in our fellows. Self-seeking will slip away. Our whole attitude and outlook upon life will change. Fear of people and of economic insecurity will leave us. We will intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle us. We will suddenly realize that God is doing for us what we could not do for ourselves.
Are these extravagant promises? We think not. They are being fulfilled among us—sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly. They will always materialize if we work for them.
