“You only lose energy when life becomes dull in your mind. Your mind gets bored and therefore tired of doing nothing. Get interested in something! Get absolutely enthralled in something! Get out of yourself! Be somebody! Do something. The more you lose yourself in something bigger than yourself, the more energy you will have.” Norman Vincent Peale
He’s right. Mr. Peale knows what he’s talking about. I say this because I have experienced it myself. The lethargy that comes from trying to live a small, safe life.
I know what it’s like to stick to a comfortable routine, covering the same ground over and over, going nowhere. That’s how you fall into a rut. And the only way to get out of it is to stop doing the same, old thing and start doing something new.
So I’ve decided to stretch myself a bit. To get out of my comfort zone and commit to participating in Blog Month for Compassion. In September, I will join other bloggers as we “unite on behalf of children in poverty.”
The goal? To help find sponsors for at least 3,108 children in need.
Are you like me? Have you been looking for a new challenge, for “something bigger than yourself” to ignite and energize you? Ask God to show you what that is. Then go “Do Something”.
