I’ve been feeling a renewed sense of taking the time to live. Do you know what I mean? Like all of us, I can get so bogged down in the daily doings of life that I forget to truly live.
It’s funny how spring invites us to see things freshly. All the life bursting forth reminds us that we also need to recreate.
So, I sat down and wrote a bit in a journal about what that means to me right now and I realized that I need to protect this sacred place of living. I mean, I already knew that, but it gets lost in the fray at times.
I realized, anew, that I’m responsible for my own happiness and time to live. It is not anyone else’s responsibility to carve that out for me. Me being me, I came up with a plan.
On the docket:
- Time to reflect/Bible study
- Handwritten letters
- Time outdoors
- Creating my own adventures
- Simplicity and Minimalism
- Nourishing my artist’s heart
- Friendships: Old and New
- Guarding my heart
- Meaningful conversations and fellowship
- Seeking out inspirational, passionate people/being mentored and mentoring/a circle of giving and receiving
- Abundance mentality in thoughts, words, and deeds
- Time with hubby
- Wine and cheese
Gosh, there really is so much more I could say. This will require lots of prayer and intentional choices. You may remember that my two words of 2015 are Pause and Follow. It’s getting close to mid-year and it’s time to do those gut checks. Am I making strides towards my goals? Are you? Are you pursuing them un-apologetically? If I’m honest, there has been rough surf. I’m grateful for those because I can adjust my sails going into the second half of the year.
Happiness is the reward of intentional living. I’m growing.
