How’s life? Busy and full here. Just the way we likes it.
Wanted to share this:
Most of us spend considerable time putting off the things we should be doing or we would like to do or we want to do, but are afraid to do. We are afraid of failure. We don’t like it, we shun it, we avoid it because of our inordinate desire to be thought well of by others. So we come up with a thousand brilliant excuses for doing nothing. We put things off, waste the energies of life and love that are within us. And the judgment of the Lord High Executioner in The Mikado on the girl who perpetually procrastinated falls on us: “She’ll never be missed; no, she’ll never be missed!”
Each of us pays a heavy price for our fear of falling flat on our faces. It assures the progressive narrowing of our personalities and prevents exploration and experimentation. As we get older we do only the things we do well. There is no growth in Christ Jesus without some difficulty and fumbling. If we are going to keep on growing, we must keep on risking failure throughout our lives. ~The Ragamuffin Gospel, Brennan Manning
Food for thought Fitties.
I saw this video earlier on Facebook shared by my man Tony Horton. He may be a bit of a goober, but no doubt the man is making the world a fitter and healthier place.
It’s a sobering video. I think the tone is a little… I dunno… judgey? But maybe rightfully so? Wrongfully so? I don’t know. What do you think?
