Bemuse: (v) to puzzle, confuse, or bewilder someone.
There are four reasons that can motivate what I do:
- Because God wants me to
- Because you want me to
- Because they want me to
- Because I want to
During every election season, I am bemused by the surrounding horde of candidates who are constantly trying to figure out what is going to be pleasing to the mass accumulation of voters.
Inevitably, because they’re trying to find what other folks want them to do, they end up stumbling over some piece of truth and speak it aloud, which they have to apologize for–insincerely.
If you want to remove bewilderment from your life–that sense of being bemused–discover one very interesting insight:
Try to fulfill at least two things off of the above list of four.
First, find out what you want to do, and then, ask yourself if it lines up with God, someone else or everybody.
It’s nice to have that confirmation. Granted, it’s not always possible.
But if you can have a buddy or divinity to back you up in the court of public opinion after you’ve spoken your desires, it does assist in helping you survive … the onslaught of nasty tweets.
