Being the Best

“Peace of mind comes from not wanting to change others. – Gerald Jampolsky

I read something similar to this in Attitudes of Gratitude in Love. Basically it said that we fall in love with someone because we like who they are, marry them, then spend the rest of our lives trying to change them to be like us. We’ve stopped focusing on why we love them and instead are focusing on the fact that they are not behaving the way we want them to, and it feels shitty. However, we can find peace and joy instantly if we simply refocus on the good in them AND do everything we can to be the best and happiest person we can be, regardless of what they are up to. I am now focused on being the best son, brother, father, husband, publisher, employer, sponsor, sponsee, and man I can be today and ILML!
