Spiritual Thought of the Day

Don't miss your life by trying to live someone else's. Many of us are great fixers, and as we watch others we can hear ourselves attempting to 'sort them out' as if we were living someone else’s life. We hear it in our conversations with others and with ourselves. It sounds like, "They shouldn't...weren't they awful...did you hear about so and so...in my opinion they should". In these moments I am wasting my time trying to write the script for someone else and I am forgetting that I can only write my own script. I have no right to write another's script and any attempt to do so is futile, frustrating and doomed to failure. Today let me taste the freedom from the subtle tensions and anxieties about others by letting them write their own script.
