Someone gave me this thought. When people ask me how I am, I usually say, "fine." Don't most of us? But if I want to stay in touch with spiritual growth and emotional maturity, that is, work on these things on a daily basis, than my response might be, "better." That is, I am better than I used to be when I would mess up big time. If I am still practicing old behavior, it is not old, and I am not feeling, "better." And if I am not better, then I am only getting worse. So I try each day to keep in mind, "how am I doing?" Ask myself that question early in the day. If I cannot say, "better," than in the past bad behavior, I need to do something now. I have the tools. Start by getting out of myself. Sometimes solitude is simply isolation with a nicer name.
