Get off the drama bus
DRAMA: An exaggerated amount of emotion or excitement in relationship to the events to which it pertains.
I wonder what might happen if we made a conscious decision, everyday, to get off the drama bus?
If we refused to talk in exaggerated terms about things that aren’t worth talking about?
Silly things, like red cups.
Like the “war on Christmas.”
The latest gossip about celebrities.
The way our favorite political candidate is going to save the world.
The snarky comment our Facebook friend made about his ex-spouse.
What if we got off the drama bus and instead chose to talk about:
- How to make the 5 mile radius around our home a better place to live.
- What we can do to love our co-workers and fellow church attenders in more tangible ways.
- Why our business and hobbies seem more important to us than our spouses and children.
- Ways we can make someone else smile or have a better day.
- How we will look at the way we’ve spent this year, 5 years from now.
- The kind of legacy we want to leave behind when we die.
What might happen?
Do you think we’d become better people?
Would we live each day a bit more intentionally?
Would the people around us enjoy being around us?
