The past few weeks have been interesting, I’ve decided to move out of the way, and surprisingly many great things have occurred. I’m happy with the choices I’ve made, and for the first time I feel as though I’m definitely on the right path; more importantly my heart and mind are aligned. The journey has just began, I know that there will be times of doubt, but my Faith is strong; I trust that God will see me through. While I’ve been on a hiatus from writing, I’ve been moving forward. I started a class on Relational Care recently. What is relational care? I feel as though I’m called to encourage others, to help those who are in pain navigate this thing we call life. I see myself becoming a Life Coach, not quite sure where this journey will take me, but I’m willing to follow it.
I sometimes refrain from writing much about my personal struggles here, but it’s been amazing hearing from everyone and listening to your stories. Even though I don’t know specifically who reads what I write, it’s good to know that my words could encourage others in those dark times. As I mentioned in my New Years post, I’m going to continue doing things that worked well for me last year. Two of my biggest tenants is living more Authentically, that means telling the truth, and showing people the real ME. Secondly I want to live with Intention, meaning that I will do things with purpose; well the things I can control anyway. I think I’ll add another to that list, I want to LIVE life, meaning that I want to enjoy what I do, I want to be happy. There seem to be two common treads of life that are universal, Happiness and Love. Despite the various languages all people understand what it means to be happy and what it feels like to be loved. How will you live your life, will you allow others to dictate how you live? Aren’t you the one living YOUR life, you also have to live with the consequences right, so why are we so afraid to live? Fear is helpful in getting us out of danger, but it can also limit us from being happy. As I think about how I’m going to live a more authentic life, I’m reminded by this song from For King and Country, there’s a monologue at the end. After reading it, you should as yourself, what kind of love am I living, am I being authentic in my love?
If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate.
If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day,
and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing.
If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere.
So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
