A Day at a Time

Reflection for the Day

“If a person continues to see only giants,” wrote Anais Nin“it means he is still looking at the world through the eyes of a child.” During this 24-hour period, I won’t allow myself to be burdened by thoughts of giants and monsters – of things that are past. I won’t concern myself about tomorrow until it becomes my today. The better I use today, the more likely it is that tomorrow will be bright.

Have I extended the hand of caring to another person today?

 Today I Pray

God, may I please grow up. May I no longer see monsters and giants on my walls, those projections of a child’s imagination. May I bury my hobgoblins and realize that those epic dream-monsters are distortions of my present fears. May they vanish with my fearfulness, in the daylight of my new serenity.

Today I Will Remember

I will put away childish fears.
