He has been granted a gift which amounts to a new state of consciousness and being. He has been set on a path which tells him he is really going somewhere, that life is not a dead end, not something to be endured or mastered. In a very real sense he has been transformed because he has laid hold of a source of strength which, in one way or another, he had hitherto denied himself. He finds himself in possession of a degree of honesty, tolerance, unselfishness, peace of mind, and love of which he had thought himself quite incapable. What he has received is a free gift, and yet usually, at least in some small part, he has made himself ready to receive it.
Q1. Where in your life do you feel you are enduring more than enjoying?
b) How can you turn the situation around and see it with eyes of gratitude?
c) Have been able to rise up and out of a situation (past or present) and find things to be grateful for?
d) If you currently have a situation in your life, maybe write a Dear God letter asking for help on how to rise above it. Read it to your buddies. Say every day:
I am going to make an action plan as to how to rise above rather than endure this situation.
Q2. Life is a half full glass not a half empty one.
Write on this slogan or incorporate it into your answer to the above questions.

Q5. Do you find yourself in possession of a degree of honesty? How much?

Q6. This is the first day of the rest of your life.
What are you going to do with it?
