Sometimes I need to be reminded to just be myself, and I found these words from St Francis de Sales, 17th century Bishop of Geneva, to be an encouragement. Maybe you will too.
If the heart wanders or is distracted, bring it back to the point quite gently and replace it tenderly in its Master's presence. And even if you did nothing during the whole of your hour but bring your heart back and place it again in Our Lord's presence, though it went away every time you brought it back, your hour would be very well employed.”
“Have patience to walk with short steps until you have wings to fly.”
“Be who you are and be that well.”
