BUT WHAT ARE
But what are you DOING about it? Much like sarcasm is low hanging fruit, so is cynicism. It's easy, or another word, *cringe* lazy. Point a finger, throw out some judgment, and sit on the bench for yet another day, week, year, *gasp* lifetime. Or! Identify the parts of your own portion of this big, little world that could use a hand, and begin. Pray for changes of heart- theirs AND yours- to become and remain teachable. Discard the bitterness and jaded attitude that accompany cynicism, for it's the HEART behind a thing that matters, always. Pluck what's left- perception- to carry forward, paired with optimism and in way of balance, discernment, i.e., no brushing stuff under the rug. Hurt will happen. That's what healing's for. Participate. SHOW UP!
What I tell myself.
What I fail at often.
What I'll keep attempting.
Not in my strength, but in His.
