Good day, B.W.O.W; it is not another day; it is a new day.
2022 is all about you - You and God me and God.
January, our focus is growth beginning with our relationship with God with our Lord - God is LOVE! And we are required to LOVE all people.
"It is what it is."
This statement is repeated repeatedly by people, including some of us; I read that it is sum upped as ambivalence towards a person or situation. So, we shrugged it off and kept it moving, not caring enough to dig deeper, understand the problem, or take the time to listen. There are times when we know our audience, and we decide, "It is what it is." Some situations take too much energy, so we become ambivalent and keep it moving, and at times that is best - that is wisdom.
Jordon B. Peterson explained ambivalence like this.
"In the most basic of situations-- when we know what we are doing, when we are engaged with the familiar-- these fundamental tendencies suffice. Our actual situations, however, are almost always more complex. If things or situations were straightforwardly or simply positive or negative, good or bad, we would not have to make judgements regarding them, would not have to think about our behavior, and how and when it should be modified-- indeed, would not have to think at all. We are faced, however, with the constant problem of ambivalence in meaning, which is to say that a thing or situation might be bad and good simultaneously (or good in two conflicting manners; or bad, in two conflicting manners)." Ponder-Think-Examine yourself.
Philippians 4:8 "Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
I love you, MiMi
