Time out: Smell the roses
Dear beloved internet audience. Being a security and conflict conscious program the Greyman Doctrine has a habit of frequently covering many dark and unfortunate events that occur around the world.
Many people who are either in this particular field or follow its activities have a habit of either burning out or developing compassion fatigue from being exposed to such unfortunate events on a regular basis. We at the Greyman Doctrine wish to encourage you to be aware of these dangers and risks around the world but without developing a sense of paranoia or acquiring any form of emotional pollution into your personal life.
Many times the news can be a depressing thing to read as we focus so regularly on the negative and the corrupt in the world. I implore you to take a look at the positive just as much as the negative. Look around your community at the hard working volunteers who provide programs that without their service would not exist, think of the good genuine hard working people around you. think of your loved ones.
I am personally a man of faith and though I would never force my beliefs on another if you yourself are also someone of faith then I hope God will enrich and bless both you and your family. The times are hard and they will probably get harder still. It is my belief that for every act of evil on this earth there is an act of good that follows it. Its just sometimes a little harder to notice.
So despite all the depressing news coming your way take some time out of your day to smell the roses, tell that lucky girl or boy in your life how much you love them and how happy you are that they are in your life, go buy a coffee for a stranger, tell your mom and dad how important they are to you.
As Bobby Mcferrin once said "Dont worry, Be happy"
