The Today Show has a campaign that they’ve been running for some time now. It is called “Love Your Selfie”.
Here’s my take on that – get over your selfie!
You are not the center of the universe. (I’m speaking to the choir here.)
A full, rich life is spent in the service, care and love of others.
Don’t get me wrong. There is a time for self-introspection and healing. There are times when we are deeply, personally wounded and we need to call out to God and take comfort in others in order to find healing.
I have spent time in therapy myself. On more than one occasion.
But self-introspection is a hamster wheel. Once you get on it, it’s hard to get off.
So, get over your selfie. Look around you for someone in need of a kind word or a caring gesture. You will being doing the work of God and I promise, it will lift your spirit in a way that a pity party never does.
