“Quietly the mouth of the just meditates on wisdom
And their tongue utters judgment”
Today I want to talk to you about drama. Not the theater kind of drama. The kind of drama that shows up in your life. And during quarantine, drama is all around (I’ve heard many stories). We’re spending more time in one place, a lot of emotions have risen to the surface, anxiety about life is at a high. All of this is a perfect door for drama to enter. But drama doesn’t help any of us live the lives we want to live or be the people we want to be.
What this psalm verse offers us is a way to tackle drama. When you feel yourself being pulled in, quietly meditate on the wisdom within you. Ask yourself how you would like to behave. Remind yourself of how loving and compassionate you are. Of how sensitive yet strong you are. Remind yourself to stay the course of who you are. We can’t control how others behave nor can we control the emotions within them that led them to their behavior. We can only go within ourselves and decide how we want to show up. Will we mess up sometimes? Absolutely, but those are our lessons to learn.
May today be drama free and full of inner wisdom.
I love you all and if I haven’t said it for a while, I think you’re doing beautifully!
