Complacency – In life we can easily become complacent and settle until we are shaken back to movement.
Reluctance – We can feel mired in a state of stagnant desires that holds us fast with no strength to move.
Anxiety – Overwhelmed by feelings of helplessness, uncertainty and thoughts of what the hell is going on?
We so often allow emotions to control our lives. Each day, we allow opportunities to pass us by while we stand afraid to move. Our dreams slipping from our hands. It paralyzes us in social encounters laying on a fear of failure and even success. Our hopes and passions slowly fading in the distance.
The Perfect Storm – Recent events at work, at home and in my own heart have left me feeling confused and somewhat despondent. One minute I am okay, then angry, then blase before plunging into somber feelings of discontent. Yes, a perfect storm of sorts.
And yet, here in America, some are facing hurricanes in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. fearing for their safety and that of their loved ones. Not to mention the possibility of losing there possessions. Others are faced everyday with fears of discrimination, harassment and even death. Some don’t know where their next meal will come from or where they will lay there head down at night.
I really don’t have it so bad. I am blessed, and I am reminded as I will remind you to be grateful for what you have. Say a prayer for those less fortunate than you and do something to help if you can.
