I am in such a funk.
For whatever reason, I have had no desire to do much blogging as of late. But it occurred to me that if this is truly an online journal, then I have some catching up to do. See, whether I feel like it or not... I need to record not only the fun but the funk-y times.
So ya, just feeling kinda flat. Could be all the changes going on... illnesses among friends and family... death of a friend... Miranda being sick... and so far away... concerns about our parents health... work related stuff... the depressing economy... burdened for my husband's work load... just being overwhelmed with life in general.
So, this would usually warrant a much needed road-trip. Don't know what it is, but the mere act of driving away from my environment almost immediately opens my eyes to a clearer perspective, better insight... and my attitude changes dramatically! It's like I have been given a bird's-eye view and everything suddenly makes sense.
Well, instead of a road-trip, I took Koda to the dog park this morning. To clear my head. To get out of the house. To realize that~
~ I want to better balance my time between indoor activities... outside activities... social gatherings... and work.
~ I want to be more intentional about processing my life with someone else other than just my husband.
~ I want to spend more time in my cozy cottage creating... sewing, scrapbooking, photographing, sorting buttons & fabric (oh ya, very therapeutic), etc.
~ I want to be quiet before the Lord and hear His voice.
~ I want to live in the moment, instead of looking ahead to the next thing.
~ I want to be a better friend, wife, daughter, mom, mother-in-law, grammy, sister, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, employee, cook, communicator and manager of my time & money.
~ I want to truly live the life I love... or is it, love the life I'm living? Whatever the case may be... they both work for me.
Have a great weekend. I know I will. Rain is on the way!
