InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

April 9, 2024

The focus for today is:

I am willing to expect the best from everyone, including myself.

Today's inspiration was written by Marie T. Russell:

In order to make a new dream come about, we have to be willing to let go of any limitations we have placed on ourselves and on others, and be willing to expect the best from everyone, including ourselves.

Change, by its very nature, means letting go of the past, of the way things were, and perhaps of the way we have expected them to be.

We must be willing to expect our dreams to come true, or as the affirmation goes "this, or something better".

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     From Rigidity to Change
     Written by Marie T. Russell,

Our focus for today: I am willing to expect the best from everyone, including myself.
