Help Needed

cantI don’t believe in resolutions.  I’ve worked really hard at self-improvement and it made me proud and unhappy and worse than when I started.

But I do believe in prayer.  And here’s some things I’m praying God will help me do:

be a beginner

be still

do (some) things I ‘just don’t do’

act (sometimes) like I’m not me

ask for help

make mistakes without condemning myself

make mistakes without excusing myself

accept a bit more chaos

take time before replying to phone calls, emails etc.

break things down into bite-sized bits.  Then have a go.

apologise more

move on
