Ready. Set. Engage...
I wish I were…

Today I choose to get up and go to work.  I choose to feed my dog and choose to check her paws before she comes in, after all it was raining last night.

I choose to pay attention. I choose to pray.

I choose to be lazy.  I choose to be concerned.

I choose to choose.

My problems arrive when I stop choosing.  When I let life “just happen” to me is when I begin to see issues.

"I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!" -Revelations 3:15

It’s easy to get confused and think the important part is that I have a choice.  The reality is the important part is that I make one.

Never Going Back to Okay

"How’s it going?" 

For those of you who know me, my life is never really just okay.  It’s usually on a high, a low, inside, outside, or upside down.  If it were just okay, I’d probably be bored and then we’re back to the high or the lows. 

The problem I see isn’t in the question.  It’s in the answer I usually give.  “Fine.”  “Okay.”  “Good.”  Perhaps the truthful answer is, “I really don’t have time to talk right now” or “you don’t have time to listen, so I’m doing…. <insert default answer here>.”

Here’s the deal.  I usually know the answer to that question.  Maybe it’s time to start answering the question… really.
