To prove I haven’t lost my sense of humor the meme of the gal admitting, “Of all the things I’ve lost, I miss my mind the most,” always brings a smile to my face. That is until the countless times a day when I walk into a room, stop, and retrace my steps, hoping I would remember why I went there the first place???

When I worked with adolescents in recovery, I’ve realized this is a population that has suffered a great loss. It’s true. Because they came from homes where there was alcohol or drug abuse, these beautiful souls have lost their childhood.

How about you? I pray you’re ready to review the following Take Time and Think List and reclaim the beauty that is your inner child.

What have you lost that you miss the most?

  • Is it your childhood.
  • Your self-worth.
  • Your sense of humor.
  • Your ability to reward yourself for a job well done.
  • Confidence.
  • Loss of honest communication.
  • Loss of sound decision-making.
  • Your Dignity.
  • Or your spiritual compass.
  • All of the above or something else.

Give yourself permission to search and find the specialness that is You!

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it (Psalm 139:114 NLT).
