IS YOUR LIFE DIFFICULT? DARE MORE
Are you going through a difficult time in your Life right now? If you are not, perhaps a friend or family member is? It seems that difficult times are rarely far away for us or for those we Love.
The Roman Philosopher Seneca wrote: “It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult.”
It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. – Seneca
Surprisingly, it is nearly always the case that we are not depressed, or weary, or tired of Life because of our circumstances.
We are depressed, or weary, or sad far more often because we don’t have an overriding mission for our Life, or we lack a clear vision of what our unique contribution to the world will be.
So we stay in the job that barely pays the bills but provides very little satisfaction. We stay with the boyfriend or girlfriend who we don’t Love, but with whom we are comfortable. We rely on what our well-meaning but flawed human parents, teachers, and pastors taught us of our religion instead of forging a personal one-on-one dynamic friendship with our God.
Let us Dare! It much more fulfilling, more worthy of us . . . and much easier!
From my heart to yours,
