Expressing Our Freedom

If you watched the evening news tonight, you no doubt heard more about the Casey Anthony trial, the economy, and all sorts of other tidbits that probably didn’t make you feel very good. Maybe, just maybe, there was a tidbit at the end with some good news. Or not.

It seems that we expect the news to be bad. And even if there is good news, there can only be so much of it. Because, of course, it’s a half hour broadcast and we know what comes first.

Having grown up and been conditioned to expect that whatever it is can’t be that good, or go on for any period of time, we expect “the other shoe to drop,” “the bloom to fall off the rose,” and other events so that we can be returned to the state of dis-ease, dis-comfort and mediocrity.

It is what Gay Hendricks calls the “Upper Limit Problem.” We allow our lives to be just so good for so long, and then something happens that sends us back down again. But we can solve that pattern! Click on the link below to listen to my talk on this subject.
