I want to be steadfast, but not to the idea that change is always a bad thing.
I want to be steadfast, but not to the notion that I can’t learn new things, change my opinion, or see things from new perspectives.
Perhaps it is worthwhile to remain steadfast to growing; to changing; to trying something new and exploring new ways of understanding the world.
Perhaps being steadfast should not mean being immovable, unchangeable, or set in our ways.
Perhaps the thing to which we are asked to remain steadfast is curiosity, wonder, and the humility to accept change.
I’ve struggled in recent months to find the time and energy to write. A group of writers proposed writing something every day for the month of October, based on a one word prompt, and writing in just five minutes – no worrying about perfect grammar or being poignant or well-polished. I’m giving it a go in an effort to jump-start my writing. For the one word prompts, I’m going to follow along with The Upper Room’s Sight Psalms. They put out a picture a day and apply one word and a short reflection. If you are reading this, thanks for accompanying me for this experiment in motivation and discipline.
