Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
Looking in the Mirror
When we look in the mirror, who is looking back? Is it someone we like or someone we have grown to dislike? Is it someone weak and defective because of illness? Or is it someone good and decent in spite of it?
Ideally we see ourselves for who we are – with strengths and shortcomings, with abilities and limitations. Ideally, we see someone who has grown to accept and love him- or herself [illness and all].
When I look in the mirror today, who do I see looking back?
Thought for the Day
Accepting my limitations is a sign of health.
