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.
