A reminder

The words are not flowing easily today; I’ve started & re-started this blog post a number of times. Maybe it’s because I overslept this morning when it was the worst possible day to do so; or maybe it’s because I’m frustrated by things about which I have no control.  Maybe it’s because I’m trying to make sense of what’s happening in our world & can’t; or maybe it’s because I’m somewhat of a perfectionist.  One thing I am aware of is the importance of being honest with myself.

And that’s very important.  Quoting from Richard Rohr’s book, Falling Upward; “Soulful people temper our tantrums by their calm, lessen our urgency by their peace, exhibit a world of options and alternatives when all the conversation turns into dualistic bickering.” (pg. 140)

Thanks Richard, that’s what I needed to remind myself of; I want to be a person like that.
