Unleashing the Voice of Woman
"I was feeling "less than" today. Feeling like I am a spiritual infant and I don't measure up. I allowed myself to wallow for a bit, and then I remembered not to compare myself to others and I reflected on my life.
I have faced things and overcome things I pray you will never have to. I have accomplished some pretty awesome things in my life. I'm proud of myself and grateful for all of the blessings in my life. There is so much focus everywhere on what we still need to release/let go of/improve/expand that I start to lose sight of the fact that I have raised a family and provided a comfortable life for them. I stuck it out with my disabled husband for 40 years and chose to love him every day. I paid off a mountain of medical and credit debt. I have helped people in need. I have taught, coached, and provided opportunities for others to improve their lives.
I am not to be pitied because of these things. I am not less than because I have not made some grand spiritual pilgrimage. My pilgrimage was showing up every day for 40 years no matter how terribly hard it was - with a smile and as much laughter as I could rip from life. I am not broken, I am not better than, and I sure as hell am not less than.
