Today is Not a Good Day

I could go on about what is happening today with me and circumstances beyond my control but the more I think about talking the worse I feel so my entry for this afternoon, is comprised of this very short stream of consciousness for now until further notice. I'll start my day over later.

I started my day over around 1:30 p.m. It's much better now!
I subscribe to a site called White Bison. This helps me to get my head on straight and reminds me of what I need to remember. Here was the one for today. It was very relevant to me.

"I can tell you that understanding begins with love and respect. It begins with respect for the Great Spirit. All things - and I mean ALL things - have their own will and their own way and their own purpose; this is what is to be respected."

-- Rolling Thunder, CHEROKEE

" Everything on earth has a purpose and is designed special. No two things are created identical. Sometimes in our minds we have a picture of how things should be, and often what we see is different from what they really are. When this happens we often want to control how things are, making them act or behave according to our picture. We need to leave things alone. God is running all things. How do we do this? In our minds we tell ourselves to love all things and respect all things just as they are. Accept what we cannot change.

Great Spirit, teach me the value of respect and help me to accept people, places and things just as they are."
