"/>Concern - Intrigue - Ann McMaster M.A., L.P.C.

LIFE AS IT IS

Concern – Intrigue

I am concerned about the degree of divisiveness in our world, some of it vitriolic, irrational, knee-jerk, one-dimensional. I am concerned about the lack of concern regarding the reality of three American women being murdered every day by an intimate partner. I am concerned that the world’s fastest growing crime is the trafficking of women and children (~$99 billion/year). I am concerned about corporations and government agencies driven by ego and greed. I am very concerned about the growing demand for entitlement. I am concerned about the legacy being inherited by my grandchildren.

I am concerned. I feel helpless to make any difference whatsoever to the above issues, and other issues that loom large for which I have no real input. Little. Weak. Impotent. Ineffective. Useless.

I am intrigued by the indefatigable will of human beings to rise to any challenge. I am intrigued by the spirit of human beings that relentlessly reaches out to support and serve others. I am intrigued by the creativity of human beings that accomplish major scientific/social advancements. I am intrigued about the changes the next generation will forge.

I am intrigued. I feel curious about my own destiny to heal that which is painful. I feel hopeful. Committed. Deeply touched. Blessed. Grateful. I know I matter. I know you matter. I know WE matter. I know IT matters

Truth: the world changes. Unrelentingly. What’s most important? Knowing we make a difference – either by adding unconsciously, reactively to the chaos or by consciously choosing our proactive way forward. WE choose. And we re-choose. Daily. Minute by minute.

    Yes – it intrigues me too…. and I am always inspired by the human spirit and MY part in creating another kind of world – where we see our value, every day, in every thing I do.

    Thank you Ann for putting words to the struggle I have between my mind and my heart every day. Present , awake to noticing and choosing in this moment and this moment …
