It’s easy to be disappointed.
The hard part is to muddle through to see what might be celebratory.
Knowing the other side of disappointment is rarely ever legitimately celebratory, doesn’t deter me.
With childish pluck, I still believe happily in inflated potential. I still stretch on for the possibilities; grasping for the secretive brilliance of wisdom hidden in only semi-illusive balloons.
I can’t always catch those fully fulfilled higher floaters. So, I settle for a one-handed sweep through the semi-depleted lower ones; methodically elevating each ground- dragging line of hope to my wrist. They can’t help ballast behind me in an oddly staggered parade.
Despite the spectacle, I walk on prepared to face the awkwardness of progressively jerking my arm up and higher up, willing each tethered struggler the gumption to fly.
That doesn’t always work. It rarely does. In all honesty, the only way to pull off airlift would be with the help of a stronger wind.
There’s no hopelessness or helplessness in that.
It might even be the prize to recognize all fragile questions are easily transformable into launchable helium prayers.
Commit to the search. Believe, chase, capture, discover, absorb, re-secure, and re-release.
Change the world.
It only takes one great inner-to-outer revelation, and a very generous willingness to sport a celebration hat.
Quote for the Week:
Our disappointments, our defeats, our times of disillusionment, do not separate us from God Almighty. They actually draw us closer to God. Try and hold on tight to your faith. Kemmy Nola
