Intense Focus

I ended 2017 with a series of what I’ll refer to as annoyances … stuck in ATL during the infamous power outage (which required a lot of rescheduling), experiencing plumbing issues in my new place, and finding out what I thought was a flat tire was in fact a cracked wheel which I discovered during the coldest day of the coldest week of the year.

Not enough to stop me but just enough to divert me from what I needed to be doing and sufficiently time consuming to slow me down.

I had to consciously and intentionally wrest my thoughts from drifting into “why me” and focus on “what is my life trying to tell me now.” I got “be still.” And so I got still.

Inhale Hopeful, Exhale Despondent…
Inhale Happy, Exhale Annoyed…
Inhale Reframe, Exhale Stuck…

Hopeful

Hope and fear cannot occupy the same space. Invite one to stay.” ~ Maya Angelou.

I’m trying to stay awake and aware to all the chaos in our country…yet not get distracted by the destruction of the façade of freedom…so I can focus on the hope that real freedom is coming…

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrew 11:1 NIV

Inhale Aware, Exhale Distracted…
Inhale Purposeful, Exhale Unfocused…
Inhale Hopeful, Exhale Fearful…
