Where’ve You Been?
However as I have been reflecting on the different areas of my life – I realized that in this teeter – totter I ride – I had lost the truly creative, ruminating, sometimes irreverent outlet that this lovely blog provides. Ironic, how something so akin to journaling – which as you know has been my nemesis for so long – is something I have truly missed. So it appears…I’m baaaaaack!
Sometimes I feel like my life is a bit like my nephew’s soccer team (he is 7) – at that age they don’t run formations – they certainly don’t stay in position; instead they all herd together and you know where the ball is because that is where all the kids are. The ball is over there – so that is where I am, or at least my attention is – then the ball gets kicked again and squirts out – and my attention ends up over here….you get the idea.
I am hopeful that as I deepen my personal disciplines and practices, I will continue to clarify what truly makes my heart so happy.
So while I’ve been filling up the pages of my journal in the morning expressing gratitude for the things I have yet to see or create for the day, what have you been up to? What part of your life that brings you peace, or satisfaction or joy has not been receiving attention? What would it look like to tend to that for awhile?
So welcome back my friends – it’s nice to see you again.
