Tributes

Tributes................................................................................................. The mind is its own place, and it itself- Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven. If we listen to the news, we can hear stories of natural disasters, starvation and deprivation, torture and bloodshed. Yet we may sit in our homes and look at our lives and moan, " Life isn't fair to me. Nothing ever works out the way I want it to." If we could lose our self-centeredness and look at the powerlessness issues that go on outside of our little world, we would realize our hell is of its own creation. When we see what we don't have and what we can't change, we are building the foundations of a hell memorial. We are striving to preserve the have-nots and are-nots as a fitting tribute to all we cannot be. We can stop eulogizing such negativity. Sure, there are many bad things in this world and a lot of bad people. Sure, there are many things we cannot do and possibly never will be able to do. But we can tear down the tribute to hell and erect instead a tribute to heaven- to all things we can have and can do, to all the things we can change. I can build tributes to my life, not memorials. The Serenity Prayer can help me see blessings, not bitterness.
