It's 9:30 and I know I should go home right now. With the mall closing on me and my laptop running low on battery, these signals are enough to tell me to bounce!
But I'm stapled to my seat, thinking.
Do you ever feel that way sometimes? When you know you gotta get up, but you're still staying? In this context, I just really want to read more stuff online and do some research. But knowing that I gotta get up at 6AM and teach kids the next day, I know it's best I get going.
This post has no significance. But I guess if that seat that you're staying on is your comfort zone, I think it's time to get up.

All our life, we grow up believing that where we are is pretty much where we should stay.
Preschool to gradeschool
Gradeschool to highschool
HIghschool to college
Family to workplace
Workplace to death…
Even with the family we grow up with; we really don’t have a choice but to stick around and deal with what we have. But just because that’s how things have been all our life, I do not think that's how things ought to be all the time. I refuse to believe that this holds true to EVERY single part of our life. I’m beginning to believe that there’s so much more to life than one single direction.
My prayer for the next half of the year is that I will continue to break free from the stereotypes and idealistic notions. I dare ask God for new things and see things from a different perspective, and I hope you do too. BREAK FREE and DREAM BIG. Ask God for new things. As He allows the sun to set in on each new day and as He gives dying plants the chance to renew its growth, so I believe that He can do the same in my life. I believe that that’s His heart, that’s who He is: He is a God of new things.

... (list goes on.)
Perhaps, if we lessen its importance, the lesser power it has over us. The time we spend to nurse our issues, dwell on negativity, or talk about them, all accumulate to an abundance of value or weight we give to it. Perhaps, they won’t be an issue if we don’t give too much importance to them.
What is important to you? Your happiness or the negativity?
