Honestly this list could go on and on...
We need to just simplify. How is it that we get so caught up in things that we allow our souls to get so cluttered. Makes me think of a quote from the movie The Brothers Bloom where one of the characters told the other she believed he was constipated in his soul. Too graphic for you? So sorry...welcome to my blog. #keepinitreal
Public Service Announcement: I also do not condone the watching of the aforementioned movie if you are easily offended HA!So for me in 2017 I want to simplify; allowing the simple things to keep me holding on. Life will be much easier. With all the clutter, the "constipation", it causes unnecessary stress and tension that can lead to a feeling of being lost. For me, it will also cause me to (figuratively) hold on to things so tightly that eventually I will lose my grip and free fall. Thus falling into a state in which further causes confusion and doubt, among many other things. A grip so tight it will also lead to callouses, cramps, fear, etc. So why hold so tightly?
Below are two of my favorite quotes that amazingly are 100% applicable to this post.
"All relationships grow or wither in proportion to the DEPTH of communication that takes place." - Preston Morrison
"Busyness sabotages intimacy in relationships." - Misti Floyd Presley
So, to reiterate, this is a year where I choose to be more intentional about going deeper with the amazing people God has placed in my life. I guess due to my extremely extroverted self that once I am home from work, the gym, church, etc. I just kind of isolate. Not that alone time and decompression is always bad, most things in moderation are effectually very healthy. I just feel I need to utilize the connections I have in life and go to a deeper level to some extent. If you know me at all you know connection with people is very important to me and I realize I could do an even better job of it. So I declare it is time to ingest some fiber for my soul and freely give and receive of my self and others.
Well as far wholly original content it has been a while, I realize that. Hopefully 2017 will also comprise of more writing whereas I have always found it to be therapeutic and I love when I have received calls, emails, or texts from others that my blog post has encouraged someone. What a great feeling that God use my words to impact others in a positive way!
So with all that being said Happy New year to you all (albeit late) and if you think of me then feel free to pray for my soul :) And I hope and pray that in 2017 anyone reading this will also start living and dreaming accordingly.
