Game Changer, thanks Seth…

Seth Adam Smith posted this over at his blog:

I’ve struggled with what I’m attempting to accomplish this year. I would never, in a million years, have chosen to look at my current battle as a divorce. Knowing what I’m fighting for offers me the opportunity to re-evaluate my out-of-date plan of attack. The angel is standing before me, asking to slay the lizard…

I’m afraid. I’m not afraid the angel will fail. I’m afraid I’ll look back, like Lot’s wife.

Then he posted “Finding Meaning in Suffering”…

I am awed by how others share what I need to hear when I need it.

  1. Thanks for posting the links here. I put off reading them. I am glad I did. Answered my prayers too.

    • You’re welcome. 🙂

  2. Hmmm. I’m not sure I’d considered my getting sober with getting divorced. Maybe partly because I actually did get a divorce when I was 22. My alcoholism did feel like a lizard on my shoulder though. It’s not so much slayed (I wish!) as banished. I guess I feel that considering it as dead is dangerous to me. It gives the addiction a shot at coming bank and whispering evil nothings into my ear again.

    • Good points. For me, it gave me a different perspective. My personal addiction is food, not something I can cut out of my life. 🙄 What struck me was the idea of cutting out of my life some of the negative behaviors. I still fight with the negative tape. The lizard isn’t dead, but it isn’t as disguised as it used to be.

  3. Thank you for sharing this. I hadn’t had a change to read them yet. xx

    • Glad I could help!
