I get into swings of discontent on a pretty regular rhythm.  There are lots of causes for this, not all of them necessarily bad, but I think they generally coincide with seasons when I’ve become fixated on myself–self-improvement, self-esteem, self-reflection–it comes in a few flavors.  It’s a pretty easy thing to do, and our culture produces a beat that is just right for locking into the song of self.

I don’t expect to totally escape this struggle, but I am ready for a radical reordering.  I’m ready to depart from my selfishness in a way I’ve yet to brave.  I believe that we are capable of nothing short of a revolution and I think the time is now.  I’m ready to see just how far I will fight for justice.
