I read in the paper yesterday that this Justin singer kid made 53 million dollars. My guess is that his fans are children. What are the children doing to earn all that money to support this guy? Just "being" should not be a golden ticket. I had hoped that when this generation of parents quit smoking and started recycling and eating less sugar and exercising and going green, that it would somehow spill over into less spoiling of their kids too. Entertaining kids used to be so cheap. LOL I'm getting old!
I'm grateful that I got to spend some time with a sponsee last night talking about the 10th step. It's amazing to me how talking to another addict just reiterates to me what needs to be done and why.
I have a three hour meeting at work today, the kind with charts and graphs that make you want to snooze or pull your hair out and run. I'm finding it more and more difficult to sit through things like this.
I am going to seek some joy today. I'll ask God to help me find it....but I will do the seeking myself. For me, happy kind of depends on the circumstances but joy is a feeling in my heart that is not dependent on anything but God and life.
