Its not about me its about you
Its Not about Me: Rescue from the Life We Thought Would Make Us Happy by Max LucadoThere really is more to this life than youve been told.
Weve been demanding our way since day one ...
I want a spouse that makes me happy and coworkers that always ask my opinion.
I want weather that suits me and traffic that helps me and government that serves me.
Self-promotion. Self-preservation. Self-centeredness ...
Its all about me.
They all told us it was, didnt they? And we took them up on it. We thought self-celebration would make us happy ...
But believing that has created chaos -- noisy homes, stress-filled businesses, cutthroat relationships. Weve chased so many skinny rabbits, says Max Lucado, that weve missed the fat one: the God-centered life.
If you want to shift into high gear with purpose, this is it: life makes sense when we accept our place! Our pleasures, our problems, our gifts and talents ... when theyre all for the One who created us, we suddenly gain what weve been missing and find what weve been seeking.
Let Max Lucado show you how to make the shift of a lifetime. How to bump your life off self-center. How to be changed and experience the meaning-charged life you were meant to have. Your discovery starts here.

Practice is often described as the willingness to simply be with our life as it is. But this is a difficult concept to get: that practice is not about having a particular state of mind, such as calmness. Nor is it about being completely free of anxiety. This is not to deny that we will, in fact, experience more equanimity, and that our fears will substantially diminish. The miracle is not to walk on water.
Last week I had the opportunity to attend a virtual dementia demonstration. What happens if that task becomes interrupted? As caregivers we should communicate in seven words or less. We need to slow down, be compassionate and help them be successful. It is up to us to change the story, because all we can do is change our level of understanding. Listen and look at it in a different way.

Tears make you braver. Heartbreak makes you wiser. So thank the past for a better future. You see, I had a core belief that there was something wrong with me. I never felt enough. Slim enough, pretty enough, clever enough, worthy enough, or just, well, anything enough. It was his issue, not mine.
