Today's Empowering Question

"What are five things I'm most grateful for today? Ten?"

Today's Fast Session

It's so easy and it seems pretty natural, when things
aren't going right, to get angry and frustrated. It's
common for people to shake their fists at the sky and say,
"Why me?!"

At these times, what's needed is a little perspective.

For me, right now (Oct. 2000), it's downright painful to
even sit here and type, due to these disks in my neck that
may or may not be part of me for much longer. There are so
many 'What ifs?' that it's a bit daunting. What if I do
nothing? What is reasonable to expect from therapy?
Surgery? What about mobility afterwards? How about
sports? Ever again? Precautions? Pain? Oh, the pain!
Paralysis? Loss of use of a limb? Gosh, I'm only 38!!
This wasn't in the plan!

And that's just what a lot of people do until they're
'paralyzed' with anxiety.

There is another way...

The desire must be to feel better mentally when it's not
possible physically or when outer circumstances aren't
likely to change soon. Isn't that right? I mean, you'd
like to at least 'feel better' in your thoughts, right? It
IS possible.

So I literally can't think of a better thing to do than to
put forth every ounce of effort into gaining a perspective
on things that will bring peace of mind.

Haven't we all known or heard of someone who has
experienced devastating circumstances, including radical
deterioration to their health, yet they 'managed' to stay
'positive?' They must be out of their right minds, huh?
But the truth is that there are literally millions of
people right now whose daily struggles make our own seem
like a grain of sand in our shoe.

It's all about perspective...

Remember, things could be worse, right? You could be gone
already. The pain could be triple. The loss could be
total and permanent. The embarrassment could be worse...
somehow. The scars could be worse. You could live in a
refugee camp. You could be starving.

Remember, if you were born in a country with tremendous
freedoms, you've got it a whole lot better than BILLIONS of
others. Do you shiver in your sleep? Do you wonder where
your next meal is coming from?

To go on with grace and a calming peace, I only need to
think about all the things that ARE good... in comparison
to what they could be... compared to what so many others
are experiencing this very moment... compared to where I've

Take a minute or two or ten and write down a short list
that you can pop in your wallet, pocket or purse. Put on
it all the things you can think of that are good compared
to what things used to be like. What's good compared to
what others face? How's your country? Your neighborhood?
Your schools? Your friends? Has anyone shoved a gun in
your face in the last 24 hours?

No matter what can happen to you, keep in mind that it
could be worse. Also, remember that you are bigger than
any of it. You can go on with dignity and overcome all of
it. One peaceful, smiling, serene and grateful minute at a

And there are plenty of role models who've experienced it
all before you have, all around you to help you do it.

Isn't that rather comforting?
