I can learn from the differences

I can learn from the differences I have with others

Differences are part of the Creator’s gift.  I am so thankful that I have been given a unique set of skills.  When I think about the talents of others, I am grateful that there are so many differences in the world.

Even when I disagree with other’s thoughts or actions, I do not take these differences personally.  I am glad there are people who experience the world in a way that is different from me.  This allows people to see solutions that might be hard for me to recognize or contribute ideas that might not have entered my mind.

Because people are so different, the world is a better place.  How boring would it be if everyone and everything in the world were the same?  When I think about that, I can see the great beauty in the world today.

I think of myself as a child coloring a picture. Instead of filling in all the lines with one color, I use a full crayon box to draw within and outside the lines.  Each color and shade, though different, adds more depth to the picture.  Through choice and differences, I can create a beautiful picture.

The joy of life comes from the bright colors of our personalities and the vivacity of our hopes and dreams. Because we are all individuals, we can fill the world with choice and possibility.  We can create a more beautiful world by our combined talents.

While I rejoice in the ways that I am unique, I also cherish the differences of others.  Just as I want others to appreciate my value, I show that same respect by admiring other people’s differences.  I know I can learn from others and I am grateful that the Creator has given me this opportunity.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Have there been times in my life that I have learned something from someone who is different from me?
2. Even when I disagree with others, can I learn to appreciate the value of their perspectives?
3. Am I truly grateful for all of the wonderful diversity in the world?

I challenge myself to be calm in order to release daily pressures

Managing my frustrations is the best way for me to reduce daily pressures. Sometimes I become upset because I feel like my daily pressures have become overwhelming. When I realize that I am becoming angry or depressed, I take actions to soothe myself.

I challenge myself to stay calm because I know that I can handle problems best when I approach them with a rational mind. A calm mind thinks clearly. Because I am a rational person, I can solve any problem that comes my way.

Whether it is the increased responsibilities at work, feeling like I don’t have time to accomplish all of my tasks, or feeling overwhelmed by family commitments – I stay calm. I may feel the urge to become frustrated or angry, but I realize that those actions will only intensify my anxiety and project negativity into the world.

Thinking of myself as a ship captain helps me remember that I can get though rough waters. When a storm approaches, I know that it will not last. Even in rough waters, a good captain can keep the ship on course.

Keeping a cool head and focusing on my goals are the best ways to get through daily pressures. I know that soon I will reach calm waters and the storm will be behind me.

Challenging myself to remain calm in the face of mounting pressures is a challenge I accept. I am a brave ship captain on a clear course. I know the rough waters are only temporary. Choosing to stay calm releases my daily pressures.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1.    Do I allow daily pressures to upset me?
2.    How can I release daily pressures from my life?
3.    Do I accept the challenge to remain calm in the face of mounting pressures?
