That has a little bit of confused-umph to it doesn’t it?
I want stubborn gladness, and I want it bad. On a small level, stubborn gladness is simple: don’t take life too seriously. it’s being glad in the midst of trouble in life.
We all have troubles and we all have the opportunity to be glad, if we choose to harness and cultivate it.
Each passing day, I can feel that gladness, hope, joy, faith, and clarity surfacing.
Those are the feelings that have been squelched by my busyness and what I like to call “digging out of a ditch” for so long.
I grabbed a shovel and started digging at the beginning of this year.
I can smell the air. I can see some light. And I’m still digging. Still learning. Still discovering myself again.
Willing to listen. Willing to stop. Willing to change.
Deep stuff. Important stuff.
This is what I am doing and will continue to do.
