"Don't look to others for what is right - look to yourself and do it."
You hold within yourself the moral yardstick which tells you what it right and what is not. Depending on others to tell you isn't necessary, and it isn't even a good idea. You live in your skin, and know what is right for you. When you pay attention to that inner voice, that intuition that tells you what to do, and you do it, you will feel much greater calm than listening to others. Whether you believe that voice comes from within you or from God, it will guide you if you pay attention. When you heed that voice, even when doing it is hard, you will feel the satisfaction that comes from doing what is right and being true to your own values.
This week: Notice when others a living their lives in a way that doesn't seem right to you. This isn't about judging them; it is about noticing that depending on others to guide you may not be the best idea. Notice when what others do is different than what is right for you. Do at least one thing this week that follows YOUR own view of what is right. Remember, this isn't about making someone else wrong; it is about acknowledging that you know what is right.
