apeaceheartI read something from Macrina Wiederkehr’s book, sevensacredpauses, this morning that made me smile, especially given what I wrote yesterday. I think it’s worth sharing.

I will believe the truth about myself no matter how beautiful it is:

  • I believe in my power to transform indifference into love.
  • I believe I have an amazing gift to keep hope alive in the face of despair.
  • I believe I have the remarkable skill of deleting bitterness from my life.
  • I believe in my budding potential to live with a nonviolent heart.
  • I believe in my passion to speak the truth even when it isn’t popular.
  • I believe I have the strength of will to be peace in a world of violence.
  • I believe in my miraculous capacity for unconditional love.

I will believe the truth about myself no matter how beautiful it is. (p.109)
