Drama and Crisis

701579_maskDrama and crisis can seem to dominate our lives. At least that is the way my life felt for many years.

I finally decided that most of life’s drama and crisis were not really such at all. They were simple life situations that I was magnifying beyond their importance.

When the drama starts to dictate my life, then it is time to get off the merry-go-round. Centering in on the important things of reflection, prayer, and taking my thoughts captive brings a centeredness that begins to refocus my attention to what is a more peaceful, Christ honoring response to life.

Most issues are not my business since they are outside of my control or outside of my responsibility. If something isn’t my business and I can’t do anything about it, then why on earth would I want to stress myself out mentally? 

Life happens, so they say, but it doesn’t have to be drama driven.
