    I have been noticing that I have been really negative lately so I looked into myself and realized that I have been to self centered and gossipy about things. So of course I have been working on it but it is hard not to be jealous of others blessings and I find when I think I got it I get tested and really have to work on it. I know baby steps are needed. It is just hard.

    Its really a process isn't it. Been working on myself and there are ups and downs. I've mastered a few things but then there is those others :D I've noticed of course when I don't feel well that can affect my growth for that day, but then I give myself a pass and say tomorrow is another day. Heres to your walk on the path of happiness in your life.

    I think the biggest and hardest thing to do is recognizing and admitting shortcomings. I admire you for doing so. Just being willing is half the battle. Like Charisse said, it is a process, don't be too hard on yourself.

    This is sort of what Caroline's post and saying today is about. We al must work on this one tiny step at a time and eventually we become a finished product -- or do we ever become a finished product? Not really. We just keep learning and becoming better.

    I bet you have many things going on in your life that others would consider a blessing too. If you are loved you have blessings.

    I too am working on own self-improvement project too.

    The best thing about it is that God understands and is walking right along with you.....even when we stumble :)

    I passed a signed a few weeks ago it said- "The secret to having a blessed life is believing you already have it." At the time I thought it was so profound I wanted to make it my mantra for the year. I realized I took for granted what I do have-which by some people's standards may be a lot and others almost nothing. However, for me its good.

    Doing the right thing is often hard! Over time it becomes easier as we gain confidence. And I'm sure we've all experienced the rubberband effect, pull hard in one direction and it snaps back.

    Anything worth doing is worth doing right. :)
