Five Minute Friday: How are You Being ACTIVE?

Many times we may find ourselves in situations that we don’t like or care to be in, yet are doing nothing about it. Nothing changes without action. So how are you being ACTIVE for greater in your life? I’m reminded of a person who complained about their job, always tired, and really not a lot of time to enjoy life. When I asked if they were ‘actively looking’ Ha! Their answer was no. When I offered to help with their resume, they responded with “I have to add some more things to it.”

What is the thing you wish to change in your life, and are you actively taking steps to change it? Now, I have to be honest and fuss at myself as I’m writing this because I don’t like my weight, but I’m also nowhere near as active as I should be to change that. So yes, I’m talking to self as well. Simply put, to be active is to participate and take action.

Thanks for reading. If you have a love for writing, but often times not sure what to write about, this is a good place to start and stay as we receive weekly word prompts from Kate Motaung via the Five Minute Friday Community Page.

    You are so right about how often we complain about situations without actively doing something about them and to challenge us to move beyond this.
    But I am also reminded of the Serenity Prayer, which reminds us that sometimes, rather than action, we need to replace complaint with acceptance, because some situations are beyond our control:
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, And wisdom to know the difference.
    We need both, and most of all the wisdom.
