Refining Our Focus

Posted on December 22, 2011 by

Lately over the ‘sphere, I’ve found the subject foci odd. At this particular time of year, I would imagine that most people would be reflective and re-examine the course of how their lives went. What were their mistakes, their failures, successes, “could have, should haves”? I wouldn’t say resolutions are necessary (and I personally don’t, but that’s a different topic), but more so a time to be repentant and look forward to what Christmas Day has to offer– renewal, hope, and a fresh start.

With this in mind, why is it difficult for people to take a step back and realize that their anger, resentment, and disgust are not the only things that exist on the planet? Maybe it would do some good to take a step back and look at the big picture? Introspection can do wonders for a person’s growth and self-development, especially in faith. While the topics that center around the ire of the ‘sphere are worthy and relevant to discuss and consider, beating the drum 24/7 comes close to ingesting poison. Focus is one thing, but hyper-focus is another.

What have you decided was worth refining? Have you hyper-focused in ways that proved to be detrimental?
