Dear God, I view my life as filled with challenge and difficulty. I heroically battle through the day, solving problems, enduring trial.

If I see my life rightly, I will discover the ease that underlies my day. My difficulties and problems are the most trivial and they amount almost always to me not getting what I want – or having to work for some goal harder than I would like.

This self perception of victimization breeds a negative attitude. I criticize, complain – even if I do not share such thoughts, they are inside me. Poison.

Lord, bring me a positive outlook today. Cure my attitude. Let me rightly see my life’s work: to make the world a place where your love can pass more freely one to another.

Let me spread joy today.

(Letter #1009)
