aging without botox

Daily Ground- – -January 23

If I tell you, “You are beautiful,” does that make you feel good? If I tell you, “I hate your shirt,” does that make you feel sad?  Although it is difficult, I’ve learned that if I become attached to the world’s compliments and successes, I will become attached to the world’s insults and failures. Both are sure to come. If I am grounded in myself – who I am in this moment, then what the world thinks of me can’t make me feel better or worse in this moment.

When people compliment or insult me – it has much more to do with them, than it does with me! It is something in them that causes them to give an insult or compliment. In reality I have no business caring about it one way or the other.

Sounds good but it takes practice, practice, practice.

Peace.
