Prayer and Meditation; difficult times

I had a lovely revelation after doing my daily readings and some written meditation today. I am in a lot of emotional pain today. I know I have choices now, thanks to the 12-step programme and a lot of healthy advice. I still have difficult days, when I struggle. I reminded myself today of how before I used to have "good days or bad days" and how now I can choose to have "good days or growing days". Today, was a growing one. I ask: "What can I learn here, HP?" ... sometimes the answer is obvious. Today, not so much, but I know it will come to me in time. I then asked, if my HP spoke to me directly in a human voice, with human words to comfort me today in the pain I am in what would I hear: "Only I can give you the love you need." Those were the words that came to me, and I cried. I am so grateful for OLGA, for having a life, and for being able to live. I often forget about the "live" bit in Live and Let Live ... but just for today, I will keep reminding myself that, if I Keep An Open Mind and just give my self a chance, then I'm in with a good chance. Thank you OLGA and OlgaNon for your fellowship; thank you HP for may life today. ET

Hang in there etgohome! The life is full of ups and downs. If you are going through a 'down' part of life today, remember there are ups on the way as well. We are all growing to be better human beings and there is no growing without a pain. No pain, no gain!Take care and stay well.

"The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past. You can't go on well in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches." "The first step toward change is acceptance." "Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. That's all you have to do." "Change is not something you do, it's something you allow."- Will Garcia

Thank you May Light ! :) I feel a tad better today. I may not tomorrow, but tomorrow is none of my business -yet. ... as in your quote working on the "letting go" just now. tc
