Wow! I have not written on here since July or August. I pushed this outlet of mine to the side, and I have suffered the consequences. I used to write in a journal and describe my day and thoughts, yet I find myself not opening the journal for months at a time. It makes me think on how we push those outlets or activities that truly calm and satisfy us to our core, and we pass the time on our phones or watching T.V. Don’t get me wrong, a Netflix binge is just what the doctor ordered in many scenarios- but we must make the time for ourselves to grow mentally and spiritually.
When I am tossing and turning in bed at night, I think about time and how little we preserve it. I hear the phrase “Life is short” almost every day, but sometimes I don’t really think about it. I have been trying to live more ‘in the moment’ lately, and it is a process I struggle with grasping. I am always stuck in the past, or vying for the future- and I am missing out on what is here and now. I have written about this before, but it is a topic that I think is really important, and I think about often.
My goal is to write a few posts a week (or every day! ah!) and really give myself a place to share my thoughts, feelings, emotions, and questions. If I still have anyone out there who feels the same way, give me a heads up! Let me know what you would like to hear me ramble about!
