"When we can't control anything or anyone around us, we can gain a sense of control by living in integrity. Figure out what you need to do to take care of yourself. Don't judge others too harshly for not living up to your values. Give yourself a break for being imperfect. Let God handle handle the rest."
"Acquire a treasure chest of the real gems in life -- the values we live by each day." (Melanie Beattie, "52 Weeks of Direct Contact.")
Today I'm grateful to be honest to share openly with a group. I want to shed Tarboro and old values the way I shed weight. Go west, young woman!
God, give me the presence of mind to know when someone is acting without integrity.
