Default Accepting my Human Side

A lot happens in one day, both negative and positive. If we do not take time to appreciate both, perhaps we will miss something that will help us grow."

IP No. 8, "Just for Today"

Was just sharing with a friend last a while back, how every thing wasn't positive or negative. I have had people say, "Don't have any thing to do with that, it is negative." There is negative in everything, the program teaches me how to deal with it, how I can change it if possible and to find the goodness in it.

What is good for me may not be good for someone else and visa versa. I have no right to judge their feelings. I use to get a resentment when someone would say at a meeting, I disagree with you.

You can disagree with my concepts. How can you disagree with my feelings, they are mine. It was always important to validate that, This is how I feel, good or bad.

Don't discount me or my feeling for what they are. They may not be right or they may be a misperception or an error in judgement, but they are mine. It is up to me to process them and choose what I wish to do with them.

I am a firm believer that things are not all postive or all negative. Life is made up of both. Sometimes it is out of balance but it is what it is in the moment. To ignore it and expect it to go away is just not going to happen.

I have some animal cards and they have a reverse side. When you have the reverse and you draw the card upside down, that is your issue. I don't change any of the cards, I have them all the same way. When I get honest, and it is up to me to get there, then there is always a little bit of both, sometimes more negative than positive. Thankfully in today, that generally isn't the case, but it does happen. I don't like it, but it was the part of me learning to accept my human side.

I am not a failure just because I have a negative thought. I am not my disease. I no longer have to be Ms. Perfect.

Love always,


I share because I care.
