“Have courage for the great sorrows of life and patience for the small ones; and when you have laboriously accomplished your daily task, go to sleep in peace. God is awake.”
This quote reminds me to focus on doing the next right thing. I often worry about what is going on – my feelings, the future, others' behavior. When I do this, I start becoming controlling and rationalize my behaving in ways that is contrary to my conscience. When I focus on this quote, I realize that all I need to do is focus on one thing at a time – the next right thing. And I only need to take it one day at a time. When I do that, I am able to do the best that I can. Beyond that, I let it go to my Higher Power. So every night when I sleep, I rest easy because I know that I have done all I can and I trust that my Higher Power will take care of the rest.
