Daily Delight

The propensity to be bothered. Something I struggle with daily.
The tendency to get upset over something others or I have done.
The propensity to be bothered. Something I am working on.

I want to be gentle with myself and others. I want to bring more peace into my life by deciding what I let worry me. I don’t want to be passive or neglect my emotions, but rather I want to save myself from anxiety that can at times be crippling. Our lives are but a vapor after all, a tiny speck in the great expanse that is eternity. Why waste our short time on earth living for the things that cause us distress? I choose today to recognize my humble role in this massive universe and maybe for a moment I can find true peace within myself. 

I cling to these words with my propensity to be bothered. Something, maybe just for today, I have overcome. Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. – James 4:14
