Hopeful and helpful, or hopeless and hindered? It is always a matter of focus. You know that what you think about becomes your reality. What’s your reality? How are you manifesting your gifts to the world? The talents within you are meant to be shared with all. Always be prudent to make the best use of your time and gifts so that the larger number may be served. You are feeling pressured to put on “band-aids”, but they are not the way to health and wholeness. Occasionally little fixes are needed, it’s true… but it should not be allowed to be continued as a lifestyle. Like you, those around you need to “pick up their mats and walk”.
