There are so many days when I try to put my head toward the wind, and my shoulders steady enough to embrace the gust that follows. I am certain that life comes with more challenges than it does opportunity to feel the moments of happiness. At least, that’s my life, as I know it.
When others get involved, and despite what I feel, how I try to continue to do all the right things, that’s when it gets tricky. Not only do I offend those I am trying to assist, impart knowledge, help out, etc., but I seem to do more harm than good.
Someone told me today that they listen to what God asks of them instead of what they think they should do. As if God himself hit me with a golden two by four (BY THE WAY that hurts!) I got my ah-ha moment.
Just food for thought, because the LAST thing I want to do today is try to impart or put my own control crap on to you, I’d like to add: Maybe when you think to yourself, “I should say something.” or “I should do something.” Pause. These moments when I pay that word, ‘pause’ is so important. It can save you in incredible ways!!!
Think about your immediate reaction. Then think to yourself, “Is my response going to hurt me or the person I am conversing with?” Then respond. You might be very surprised what comes out of your mouth. Friends and family, well? They’re a gift. Remember that as you proceed.
G’night my friends. May the world keep your perspective on the great things that surround you, and may that perspective help you to identify the lies for someone else, and may that connection bring you both great joy and friendship.
