Stained Glass Windows


Elizabeth Kubler Ross once said, "People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun comes out, but when the darkness sets in, their beauty is revealed only if there is light on from within."

How is your life? Are you happy and full of joy? Is there darkness, sadness, or gloom? What prevents you from shining from the inside?

If you would like to sparkle and feel better, take some to feed your body and your mind. Ask yourself these questions.

Do I get enough rest?

Am I free from worry?

Am I eating well?

Do I know how to have fun?

Do I like myself?

Am I free from getting headaches too frequently?

Am I comfortable being around people?

Am I relaxded most of the time?

If you answered "no" to several of these, relax. This is just a way for you to get in touch with yourself and to explore strategies for self-improvement. Here are some suggestions to help you experience some joy and better self-esteem.

Go out to eat at a new restaurant. Treat yourself.

Call someone you care about but have not spoken to for some time.

Write a gratitude list.

Do some volunteer work or help another.

Write some poetry.

Listen to soothing music.

Avoid excessive caffeine and smoking.

Journal about your life and feelings.

Connect with your Higher Power. If you do not have one you can always pray, "I don't know if you are out there, but if you are, I could use some help." It's amazing what can happen!

And remember, Rome was not built in a day. Windows take time to accumulate grime and cloudiness. So clean carefully and thoroughly and begin to sparkle from within.
