“Every moment of one’s existence one is growing into more or retreating into less. One is always living a little more or dying a little bit.” – Norman Mailer (American Novelist)
Which of us is immune to life’s waves crashing on our shore? You choose your metaphor, but life is just sometimes hard . . . really hard. Being overwhelmed has got to be one of the most de-motivating emotions in our experience here. It threatens to squeeze the life out of us. It is a bully that says change is not possible. That the way things are is what will always be. These kinds of voices and this kind of bully is the enemy of Hope. Hope is a rebellion down deep within us that contends with these voices. Hope is about life, a fight for real life. A fight for the things you care about. A fight for the things you want to see changed. It is never too late to change. It starts with a decision to fight for life, to get busy living.
