Echoes and Proverbs
Some personal headlines and anecdotes arrest us, stopping us in our tracks. Here's one that still echoes through me:
If you're not enjoying your life then you’re not doing it right. (Richard Rohr)
Hmm, that seems a bit sweeping, dismissive of grind and pain. And yet. Shorty and pithy, a bit like a stick that pokes, or the proverb that prods. This does something to me, shakes me a little and sends wee alarm bells through my body! Am I, are you, enjoying your life?
