Doing Small Things … A Lesson from Mother Teresa


Posted by Carma | Posted in Emotions, Mindset | Posted on 26-05-2010

I subscribe to a business newsletter by Mark Joyner called Simpleology Daily. Everyday I receive an inspirational quote from a “mystery” person who is revealed on Friday. Today’s quote was:

“In this life, we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.”

I looked it up and this quote comes from Mother Teresa.

And it got me to thinking.

You see, my tendency is to take a really long time to make a decision and once I’ve made it, I want it NOW. So, I can get a little impatient sometimes.

And this has been happening with my weight loss. I’m “only” losing one pound per week. At this rate it will take me two years to get back to my ideal weight. And I want my thin body NOW. 🙂

And then I saw this quote. And it reminded me that I need to be grateful for each pound lost and love my body throughout this process. These are ways of thinking and being that help you manifest the universal laws used in the I Create My Body program to, well, create your ideal body.

So, from this point on, I’m going to love my body and be grateful for the transformation it is undergoing. There are reasons I gained this weight and a lesson to be learned. I now embrace the lessons and love the journey.

In other words, I will release each pound with love.
