I know today with all my heart that what I want is for my actions to be such that they do not hurt others. I found my self in a situation that comes from getting caught up in "self" and not thinking things through to see how they might affect others. I don't know if feelings got hurt as a result of my actions, but there was certainly the potential and for that I feel awful. This slump that I fell into gave me the opportunity to paint and work through it. I stayed up until 1:30 last night painting and processing my feelings and this is the conclusion I came to: The thing I want most in life is to be of service to others. I want this more than anything! I can not have happiness while I am stepping on the toes of my fellow travelers. There is room for everybody and abundance enough to spread around the world a gazillion times.
Today I have gratitude for having the ability to set right that which I may have upset. If I did not hurt the other person, I know I hurt myself. Today I will be conscious of myself and my actions. I am not sorry that the opportunity has presented itself because it allows me to put things into proper perspective abe a better person. To this I give thanks to the Universe! Love and joy to all on this beautiful Saturday!
