Burdens, Part 1

How are you feeling? I don’t mean in your stomach. I mean how is your soul feeling? There are people who forge ahead apparently unaffected even though everything around them is dismal and discouraging. To be honest, I’m not one of those folks.

Circumstance is anything but stable. When you look out the window of your soul, it’s not a pretty sight, is it? Investments down, costs up. Employment numbers vary by the media source. If what’s going on was evident, our experts would all say similar things. Instead, there is the cacophony.

It is not a sin to feel deeply about the situation around you. As a matter of fact, I would argue that the opposite is true. You should feel passionately about what is going on in your life, and if you don’t, either you are one of those seemingly unaffected folks, you are clueless, or you are in denial.
