Optimistism

It’s been a tough week. I don’t know exactly why. It just seems like it has.

A few weeks ago, I had gotten the flu for the first time in a long time. While it’s been quite a few weeks, it seems that I have not fully recovered. I think it is my body’s way of saying that I need to slow down some.

I will be the first to admit that there doesn’t seem to enough time in the day to accomplish everything I need to accomplished. I find myself asking why is there any twenty-fours in the day where we are suppose to spend about a third of it sleeping and being non-productive.

Non-productive is a state of being. It’s your perspective on whether the jar is half empty or half full. Perhaps, it’s neither. Perhaps it’s both.

It seems we are judged on whether we are optimistic or if we are pessimistic. It the matter of looking at life – a life that God created. God created us to do so much more; but, often we find ourselves doing so much less or coasting through life because we fell that’s not going to really matter one way or the other. Besides, I am jsut way to busy to help out someone with something they’re going through where often they jsut need somebody to listen to them or at least pray with them.

Thirty seconds out of the day or even five minutes out of the day could be all it takes to change someone’s life and give them a little bit of hope to inspire them to make it through the life that they’re currently experiencing.
