Well, this week has found me challenged to be present to the work. It doesn’t feel like resistance; rather, just a low-level lack of enthusiasm. The blahs.
Maybe it’s the rain. Oh Lordy, has it been raining. Enough already. Maybe it’s the aftermath of a horrible blast in my neighborhood that decimated several retail establishments, and has left the neighborhood looking just like those photos we see of streets in other parts of the world that have been bombed. Maybe it’s….
Oh and here’s the rub, the irony…. reading the above, I reflect on Scroll 6. “Today I will be master of my emotions.” OK. Got it. Time for a reality check. I have let my emotions rule over my resolve and my productivity. I am reminded of some lines from Howard Thurman.
And from Scroll 6:
“There will be days when I must constantly struggle against forces which would tear me down….Today I will be master of my emotions.”
Love to all,
