Quit Laying the Bricks

This was a good reminder for me. Playing the victim wastes everyone’s time.

Two-Minute Tune-Up

walls

No doubt there are terrible circumstances and people that  limit and “confine” us.

No doubt that our lives have not turned out the way we planned.

Yet…

there are countless people like us who have broken out of impossibly tough situations.

We can keep telling ourselves that our situation is different, that we are forever trapped, that we have tried but our problems are higher and deeper than others’ problems or…

we can quit laying those bricks

quit fortifying the walls with the mortar of  our despair

 and quit ignoring hope when it calls.

(First step: Watch, listen to, read about, and believe our heroes who smile, dance, and love outside their walls, and wonder why they stayed confined so long.)
