I wish it weren’t true, but sometimes I wake up just not feeling like doing what I need to do. If I wait around for the motivation to come, it usually doesn’t. The only cure is to force myself to start, and once I do I usually get a good rhythm going. This is especially true for exercise. Many have said to me they admire my dedication for being active 5-6 days a week. I honestly don’t always feel like it, and it isn’t always a stellar work out, but I do always get a little something done. I show up. I start.
My latest story is a tale of three thieves who come to steal from a young army of men and women who have everything to lose. They are on the brink of conquering a beautiful land that once belonged to their ancestors. Much like the young army, we too have a lot to lose as well, and there are things that come along to talk us out of our hope, peace and confidence. Listen to this episode to find out more about the three thieves and how the story plays out in the end. Click the link below, or visit iTunes if you are using an Apple product.
Disappointment is a normal part of the human experience, but how we handle disappointment dictates our experience. How do we manage and make the most of any situation when nearly every situation turns out differently than we had hoped? Hope defies sensibility and requires one not to see, but to envision. This episode explores the patience and resolve required to overcome disappointment.
Hope must be spoken to, watered, given sunlight, pruned, gazed upon and kept alive at all cost.
