At times I find my living situation, wherever I am, to be a bit trying. I would that things, people, and situations would be different and I give my reasons for why things are messy. But now and again, I am reminded or have a revelation, that these situations might be an opportunity for me to grow. I discover that my reasons for things being not so good, are really excuses, so that I don't have to change or grow. I need some fixing. What do we use to fix things? Tools. I need to pick up my spiritual tool box and go to work on me. Each day, I might need a different tool depending on what is a bit broken in me that day. Some days it is the pity pot me. Other days, I am the helpless victim. Or the Judge of me or others. I might need the resentment tool, or the fear tool. It varies. But I try to work on me each day. I often find my outlook to change with changes in me. interior change gives me new eyes, or better eyes to see, and sometimes I just need to forgive and move on. Don't condemn yourself for being imperfect. There is a tool for that. Acceptance.
