Time for plan b

Time for plan b.

Ordered a “deluxe” wrist/thumb brace on Amazon yesterday. The wrist inflammation is improving but in hindsight, it’s taking too long. This brace would have been ideal earlier. Better late than never.

Time for (and room for) a second plan b.

Easter.

Two weeks away.

Missing Church because the Covid-19 buzz is distracting our focus on Lent and the Risen Jesus.

Believe in what lights your fire and provides you unexplainable peace – believe in it all the way, as if your life depends on it.

It certainly doesn’t need to be Jesus, but it does need to be something.

If you doubt this now, there will come a time when you are faced with a harsh reality and you are confronting a fear you never imagined. At that moment, you will understand what this post is trying to say.

Unanswered Questions?

Victimized by your news feed?

Two days ago this was my office.

Victimized by your news feed?

Have you thought about it?

Is the notion ludicrous?

Does your news feed bring you joy?

Hope?

Faith?

Love?

Maybe it’s time for a change.

Be that change.

Truth and not truth

Truth and not truth.

None of us wants other people telling us what we should or shouldn’t do.

Especially when we were teenagers and adults (parents, teachers, coaches) could, and were expected to, tell us what to do.

And yet.

And yet there have been others who cared enough to share a blind spot i never knew i had.

Of course this is painful.

And once we get past the pain, we are free to transform as we move toward our next birthday.

The Other Side

Can we handle the truth?

1-10 written on a post-it note
On a 10 scale with 10 as high, how much truth do you want today?

Can we handle the truth?

In reality, nothing will help us move forward better than the truth.

Personal growth is transformationally facilitated through truth.

Why would we avoid personal growth?

Consistently attacked by a busy schedule?

Hang glider failure
On ABC Evening News with David Muir last night, a report of a tourist mishap during a Swiss Alps hang gliding flight.

 

Hang glider failure
The pilot failed to strap the tourist to the hang glider. It took a while until the pilot could land the aircraft. The tourist broke his wrist on the fall and tore his bicep – how he hung on for so long is a miracle. They were at heights that had he lost his grip he would have died. Was the pilot in a hurry?

 

The drive to do good is consistently attacked by the pressure and stress of a busy schedule.

It is infinitely easier to succumb to this daily pressure using the three main human go-to responses to reduce or eliminate the friction (pain).

Distraction, entertainment, and medication.

This becomes a habit quickly.

Be careful.

Better to fight it while the fire is small than after it has become a raging wildfire.
