The Tiny Mad Idea

Today remind yourself to appreciate every aspect of where you are today in mind, spirit, body, and circumstance.  Not where you were yesterday or where you think you want to be tomorrow.  For some reason this morning, I remembered a statement that was told to me when I was 19 years old by my much older and wiser friend of 23 (I know...perspective right).  I remember I was complaining or whining or both about some sort of self-image issue.  Which probably sounded something like, "I wish my thighs were skinnier, ugh!" The reality of course, they were already itty bitty to begin with.  We both were aerobic instructors at the time, late '80's, so go figure.  She said to appreciate everything about myself now, because one day I will look back and see myself for how I really was and wonder what was all the worry and self-doubt about.  Because it all existed in my mind.  And mind meaning my ego.

There's a great vlog about releasing the ego over at   She hit the nail on the head when she quoted a message from the book, A Course in Miracles,  which is to laugh at the ego's tiny mad idea.  Gabby say's to laugh, think, and talk your way out of the ego's mad idea to see the insanity in it.  This breaks the hold it has on you and causes you to detach from the ego's tiny mad idea.  Go check out her vlog to get a better understanding of what she is talking about.  And live in the moment along with me today.
