Our problems always seem to have something to do with our finances, kids, husband or wife, job, or health.  Trials, hard times, difficulties, problems, something that distracts us from what needs to be done, or something that totally consumes us.

 

How do you handle this stuff?  How do you deal with the problems in your life that always seem to overwhelm you and keep you for living life in a way that brings fulfillment and meaning?  In the midst of everything that seems to drag you down and keep you from being happy, how do you live your life productively?

 

Think about it.  What is robbing your life of meaning?  Why?  What can you do to change it?  Let me encourage you to take some time and consider how things are going and what you need to do differently to live a more meaningful life.  You may need to get away for a couple of days, or learn something new.  You may need to make some hard decisions and stop some form of destructive behavior in your life.  You may need help.  Ask for it.  Don’t hesitate to ask for help from friends and family.  If family is distant and friends are few, then pursue opportunities to put people around you who will help.

 

Relief may come in the form of service.  Much of the time when we are struggling with our own problems, what we need most is to do something for someone else.  Volunteer and make a difference someplace.  Get your focus off yourself and onto others.  It will help.
