A Better Person 7 March 2017



What would make me a better person?

If I could let things go instead of continually turning them over in my brain like a record with a scratch that keeps skipping back to play the same measures over and over. If I could just let some things be without picking at them because I’m not satisfied.

If I was kinder and more loving and giving. If I



would put all others before me and be content to live humbly. If I had more patience and didn’t skip right to judgement. If I could learn to ask for help when I need it, instead of seeing it as personal failure. If I could walk in empathy with others, trying to understand their path in life.



If I had the creativity to inspire others, especially hard others. If I stopped counting how much time it takes to do things with others, more so because I love to do things with others! If I could stop that niggling voice inside that tells me I have work I should be doing.

If I could capture who I am when I pray and hang onto that every moment.
