I can’t exactly pinpoint the actual day when I got fed up. I just remember there was a fire that lit up in me one day that told me to turn down the volume on my spirit because the turn up wasn’t working for me anymore.
I had difficulty focusing on things this year. Conversations, projects, the enjoyment of the good bits of life. Things that made life worth living. It felt like I was all about ticking days off the calendar instead of seizing the day.
It just occurred to me how ephemeral our lives truly are. Now why would I think that, having only just hit the first quarter of my life?
Life may have thrown snowballs at you for a very long time. While trying hard to see the silver lining behind every cloud, you may have become exhausted and emotionally numb. Is there a way out?
Everything we aspire to have or become in life matters little in the final analysis because it’s rarely mentioned at our eulogy. Knowing this, why do we pursue things of little significance? Why are we so stressed about things that matter little, especially when we won’t be remembered for them?
However, every person feels that there is something they want to improve about themselves and that there is a way to do it. But, as many of us have learned, we do not make lasting changes because we are made to feel “unspecial” by harsh criticisms.
It then came to me. These kids in the mall having a wonderful time were not all caught up with what is going on out in the world. Their world is a world of fun and excitement. It is only the “old geezers” that know about all of the terrible things going on in the world. The young only see the good.
