Busy schedules and weekly routines have a tendency to put my brain on autopilot and I lose sight of the important things in life.

Some of life’s essential truths need repeating.  So, I’d better write them down:


When our sense of pleasure and satisfaction are derived from comparing ourselves to others, we are no longer the master of our own destiny.  When we feel good about something that we’ve done, we must not allow anyone’s opinions to take that away from us.  Make myself feel proud.

While it’s impossible to turn off my reactions to what others think of me, I don’t have to compare myself to others, and I can always take people’s opinions with a grain of salt.  That way, no matter what other people are thinking or doing, my self-worth comes from within.

I must know myself better.  Be true …
