Today I had a green smoothie alongside my breakfast. It was delightful.
The weather is a bit windy today, but the sun is shining and spring is in full bloom. What is not to love?
I spent a large chunk of my morning slash afternoon at the lake reading.
I found a rad shelter.
I have been doing a lot of thinking lately trying to figure out what I believe. I know it is a lifelong process, but I feel really lost right now. I feel like I am navigating my own path, one I haven’t ever known. The more I read, the more there is to love about God. I absolutely love the values taught by the church. A relationship with God can be such a positive aspect in your life. I see it firsthand. At the same time however I have a few reservations. I don’t agree with some of the teachings and I am struggling to get past this. I am very loving and open minded and see some of the ideas taught as limiting. I don’t know how to fit everything together and make sense of it. I don’t see religion as an all or nothing thing and I believe there are many paths to God, I just have to find the right one for me.
The most important things in life are not things at all. They are family. They are memories. They are experiences. They are the things without a price tag.
I have realized how unattached I am to my “stuff”. Often when I clean my room I throw a lot away. It has no real meaning to me. My shoes, my clothes, my bed sheets what relevance does it have in the grand scheme of life? Granted there are a few, which could be named on one hand, items I LOVE. I would be a bit sad if I lost these few things, but it would not be detrimental.
Everything I truly need comes from within.
Happiness. Strength. Optimism. Open-mindedness. Love. Good Character.
A trust in something greater.
Ask yourself what makes you truly happy? And I bet it isn’t stuff.
Peace & Hugs,
