This week’s prompt is “News” – so, here goes:
News – it is a multi-meaning term. There is the daily news that shows up in the headlines of newspapers and the evening news. Then, there is our own “news” that includes life changes and such. I often enjoy reflecting on the daily news, but it is also depressing at times. I think that sometimes my own news is the same way. I enjoy reflecting on it and trying to make improvements, but other times, my news is more depressing than anything else. Right now, I’m feeling pretty good about the reflections on my own life. Nothing is perfect, but then it never is. But, things are moving along relatively nicely. I’ve been talking to a lot of people about my DD’s pending pacemaker placement and they all seem like they are shocked I am not more worried or upset. It makes me wonder if I’m not reflecting enough. If I’m burying things. But, really, I think that I’ve heard so much WORSE news at points that this news seems relatively positive in comparison.
I also think that I’ve come to realize that I can deal with things that come flying my way. And that confidence is based on past experiences. It is built on trust in God, trust in myself as being capable and trust in others who are responsible for things like my daughter’s medical well-being. Probably in that order…
What about you? What do you think of when you hear the word “news”?
