Inspire me. Go ahead; I double dare you! Right now, in this head space, I really think it’s going to be tough. I’m not trying to be difficult or rebellious; I’m really just being blatantly honest about how I feel. You see; I spend quite a lot of time online, as part of my job and even when I’m not at work. I love to know what’s going on in the world, in my industry and in the lives of those I care about. I enjoy some television too in the evenings and mostly channel surf, with only 1 or 2 shows that I will purposefully head to, with an eye on the clock and my thumb on my remote. I can’t commit to watch anything specific because I’m simply uninspired by what I’m able to watch! Even the last game of football I was watching saw me comment out loud how lackadaisical my team was and proceeded to go and wash the dishes! Can you imagine? Who does that?! All because it was yet another thing that failed to captivate me. I’m not sure if it’s just me or if I’m going through a phase, but c’mon, the bar’s really low, isn’t it?
I’ve been listening to some sermons on an international TV station and haven’t felt really moved; new music is struggling to break free of the shackles that seem to be holding it back from making us say ‘WOW’; there are no movies that have me on the edge of my seat, and even the weather is shocking. Is this the longest winter EVER?!
Ok, Brad; hold on a moment. What is happening here? I suspect that someone out there is being blown away by some of what’s being sung, produced and preached at the moment. Just because you aren’t having your socks knocked off might be pointing to something else completely. Psychologists everywhere are shifting excitedly in their seats, wanting to shout out ‘You’re suffering from a case of “Negative World-View Syndrome”’ or something with a slightly better clinical title. Perhaps. Maybe I’m just really hard to please; or perhaps you’re all wrong, and the bar is just so low at the moment that almost anything is considered acceptable?
Think what you want to think and say what you think is best to say, but I’m sticking to my guns and I’m adamant; I am uninspired!
