We live in a fast-paced age. The world is a smaller place because of technology, internet, and airplanes through our skies.
This advancement has lots of pluses. The speed, the technology, helps. Speaking for myself, I can conduct sessions anywhere I am to attend to those from varied places or nations.
Yet despite the advancement to make life easier, people still feel uneasy. You can see the tension: in their faces, voices, hands, bodies. The way they live.
Now, why is this happening? Well, you proceed to the source of the problem: your mind. Keep your mind alive now. Your imagination.
Do you see a frown of anxiety on the face of your mind? Are your teeth gritting? Your jaw stiffening? Now, in your mind, smile. Choose to shift to a face with joy.
Let me tell you about a man. He won out over his wounds and tensions.
He had undergone a severe family and marital trauma. Abandoned, deprived. He was no youngster. He was already in his 60s, a senior citizen.
What to do with his life and time in which he lived empty, depressed, and tense?
He decided it was moment for action. He had to bring life back into his life. He had to do it in simple, realistic ways.
Well, what could a man his age do?
First, he became a life coach to couples, families, and other adults. He was a wise, talented, and friendly guy. It suited his personality. Soon he had substantial clientele and been earning well.
Second, you see him volunteering as a toddler caregiver in a church’s Sunday kids’ school. Spending time with children brought him much joy. It makes him feel more alive.
And lastly but not the least, he found peace leading bible studies and joining periodic mission trips through his church. His life leads to more life.
In his 60s, abandoning the passive concepts of retirement, he found healing for his wounds. He used his mind and work to get active. Live life again.
