Something that Sally B. wrote yesterday really hit me., “And if others don’t notice the “flaws,” we’ll point them out for them!” This is so true. It reminded me of a time when I was working for a community of nuns, and one of my duties was to cook dinner. I rarely thought that it was good enough, and would find myself making little apologies to them before almost every meal. One day, as I was driving home, having just made a dinner of macaroni and cheese, that I was sure was “grainy”, I turned on NPR and Julia Child’s voice was booming from my radio, “Never apologize for your cooking!” and then the commentator said, “The words of the late Julia Child, who died today…” I knew it was a message from spirit to me.
So today, let’s celebrate what we do right…what we do really well. After all it is a day of new beginnings…a holiday called many different names, but ultimately celebrating a bigger life. Instead of pointing out our shortcomings to others, today, we could point out our strengths!
I invite you to share on this blog what you do really well…state it in the boldest words possible like, “I am really good at……” or “I am a great……” (Feel free to say it in as many or as few words as you like).
I’ll start this off,
I am a really good cook!
Love to you all, Mary
