Be Good to You

Father Charles J. Murphy, a family friend, wrote a beautiful prayer titled “Be Good to You” that I wanted to share with you all.

Fr. Murphy, who also happened to be a lifelong Notre Dame fan, passed away earlier this summer, but his words live on and are meant to be shared.  They are inspiring me as I navigate an uncertain path, and I hope they do the same for you.

Be Good to You

BE YOURSELF — truthfully
ACCEPT YOURSELF — gratefully
VALUE YOURSELF — joyfully
FORGIVE YOURSELF — completely
TREAT YOURSELF — generously
BALANCE YOURSELF — harmoniously
BLESS YOURSELF — abundantly
TRUST YOURSELF — confidently
LOVE YOURSELF — wholeheartedly
EMPOWER YOURSELF — prayerfully
GIVE YOURSELF — enthusiastically
EXPRESS YOURSELF — radiantly

…and compare yourself only to the person you are called to be and never to another. The only person you have to be better than is the person you are right now.~Rev. Charles J. Murphy
