A Different Kind of Life

“More than anything else, we have to imagine a different kind of life, a different way of living.  We have to reject the shiny, shallow future that will never come, and locate ourselves in the current, flawed moment.”  Heather Havrilesky, What If This Were Enough

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  Paul, Romans 12:2

Two similar admonitions, nearly 2,000 years apart.  It occurs to me that the “pattern of this world” had a significant head start on me.  To make matters worse, it seems unfair that I first had to acquire the “pattern of this world” only to then learn that I need to shed it.  I best get busy.
