Promise of a new Day

When you hold a resentment towards another , you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel.

—Catherine Ponder—

Our attention is consumed by what we want to control. Like a magnet, we are attracted to it; preoccupation sets in, and our freedom to live in the moment is gone. We give up living when we try to control others. Our resentment grow out of our failures to control others, a failure that heightens

our personal insecurities. When we need others to fall into line, to buy our plan, we have set ourselves up for failure. We’ll have guaranteed that we’ll experience the feelings of inadequacy that we dread. Each one of us is on the path that is landscaped according to our inner needs. Accepting that will relieve us of the anger triggered when other people behave according to their own dictates rather than ours. Resentments stifle us. To respond creatively to fluctuation of the day, we need to make the most of our personal power. Let me flow my path today, knowing it’s right for me. I will work on letting others walk their own paths, too.
