“The glory rest upon you, and God’s mercy, and God’s blessings.” ~`Abdu’l Bahá
In all that you are doing . . . Are you good to yourself? If not . . . then start! Stop beating yourself up for failing. . . and start patting yourself on your back for trying? Stop blaming yourself for what is out of your control and start controlling your own destiny! You are your best friend! . . . Do you treat yourself that way?
Do you treat yourself the way you need to be treated. Like a confidant who knows your innermost thoughts and desires. Always willing to support you or tell you otherwise. Find time for yourself, relax, and listen to what is truly on your mind. Be honest to yourself. Be ready for the unexpected!
Use your energy for you! Start doing what is beneficial for you and check it off your “to-do” list! The friend you are searching for is within. Rise above the petty things of life! Struggle and strive . . . labor hard, and hear and ponder the counsels of God.
WHAT are you doing?
Sometimes other people will interfere in our lives because they have plans of their own. Sometimes we let other people interfere in our lives because we do not have any plans of our own. Either way, you should plan the route you want to follow.
You decide how you will spend your time and energy. The electric company bills you for how often your meter is running. How much are you willing to pay for investing in others and not yourself? Remember what you have to do and stay focused on your goals.
