The peace that I long for can only be achieved through self evaluation and even more importantly a meditative mind. “Fiercely encouraged” is how I wake up feeling each morning because there is no reason not to be that way. So many different thoughts run through my mind each day as I process the hundreds of things being thrown at me each day and I think “there has to be more than this.” I know that we all must work and must push through any ideas that we have of what our life should look like by this point in our lives. The caveat is to recognize that just because the journey isn’t going as planned that it doesn’t lessen the importance of the journey. This path is what we make it and to keep it short and to the point, this path is necessary.
Peace and Love,
I realized the petrichor coming from the night before….
A long weekend, celebrating the exact thing that we have no choice but to do. I realized the petrichor coming from the night before, a light faint rain left a mild scent on this humid day. I spent time with the one I love, trying to avoid the sun while barbecuing and enjoying this unwelcoming heat. In my mind I am constantly reminded of the next chapter of my life and career but I am finishing my current one. I wish that I could bypass these few pages because I am tired of the incompetence of the mundane day that affects me from 9am-6pm.
However, I understand that it can’t happen over night so I am patient and prayerful hoping that it soon will come to fruition in my life. Being confident in what the day could bring because there are others worse off than I. Although, there are many other journeys I could’ve traveled I believe that God places us on the path that we need to be on in order to grow and overcome the obstacles that will arise. How can we have a testament if we have never been through a test? Happy Labor Day…
Finding peace is hard, you give yourself the opportunity of a lifetime by not being discouraged by life’s hurdles. You push through and try a little harder everyday but sometimes is trying enough? I’ve been battling with that question, I see a gleam of hope or at least what appears to be. I pull at it as much as I can but all it does is recede. Perhaps this is God telling me something. I have to stay on the path, I have to choose happiness over $$$$. It’s not just about the money, it’s about success, a career, and a path that I must believe in. God will bring this peace I seek to fruition but not without some obstacles. This peace that I have, the world didn’t give it and the world can’t take it….
Searching…searching for the peace that passes all understanding in the midst of fog. The world we live in has been plagued with the darkness that we have launched ourselves in, the pain that we know all to well. Are we ready for this searching to end or will it ever end? This spiritual journey is not paved with easiness but with obstacles that we all most overcome in order to be spiritually connected to God, to each other, to ourselves. Faith is something that we all struggle with, when faced with the many challenges in life, we cannot give up but instead be encouraged. Encourage not only yourself but others to stick to this journey. We are all facing things that could break us but it won’t because searching for that peace means that we haven’t decided to give up just yet.
