As a human being, we are conscious of our body, mostly figuring out how to maintain our physical well-being, so to speak. Interestingly, many have magnified the intake of all sorts of vitamins, stress relief pills and energy drinks, all to recommend good health and maintain stamina. When something is wrong physically, many attribute it to the lack of all these drugs; or the lack of exercise, rest and sleep and more likely eating the wrong kinds of food. While we cannot denounce the lack of what is good for our body, mismanaged emotions often lead to poor health.
My eyebrows were stitched together and my body language suggested that this new level is not easy. I was playing the very profound game of Candy Crush when Andre and I had a moment.

We all live in a fast paced world where time runs, technology reigns, values are constantly reshaping and success is based on accomplishments and material things. As a result, people try to catch up; we either move quickly by choice or we move swiftly by habit. In the process, we tend to lose the essence of living a well-defined life, of finding meaning for our existence and of discerning God’s purpose in our lives. So when all else fails and realize that we are being directed to the exact opposite of where we are navigating, we feel miserable and find it hard to be happy.
