Praying with hope and expectation is far better than praying with fear and doubting that God will actually come through. And it makes the waiting much more bearable.
Things don't have to be perfect for me to enjoy and embrace them (my house, my body, my story).
Gratitude is powerful. It is stronger than discontent, destroys envy, breaks down depression and builds a joyful heart and life.
Be present. Be fully in the moment you are in, and with the people you are with...without distraction.
Do what you can. Even if you feel like you want to do more, even if you think it's not enough to make a difference, do it anyway. It will.
