“When you’re unhappy, you get to pay a lot of attention to yourself. And you get to take yourself oh so very seriously. Your truly happy people, which is to say, your people who truly like themselves, they don’t think about themselves very much. Your unhappy person resents it when you try to cheer him up, because that means he has to stop dwellin’ on himself and start payin’ attention to the universe. Unhappiness is the ultimate form of self-indulgence.” -Tom Robbins
Lately, I’ve come to one realization that has put my life in a whole new perspective.
I. Don’t. Know. What. I. Want.
Crazy right? Not really. I feel like a lot of people don’t know. However…it used to be easier. It was easy to make decisions. It was easy to know where my life was headed and where I was going. Mostly because I believed that God would guide my every step.
Do I still believe it? Of course.
I just don’t live out my belief like I did in the past. I started making decisions based on what I wanted, not even bothering to consult the one who already has my life written out with his own fingers. My path is literally etched and ready for me to follow but… I’ve been blinded and ignorant. I realize that now.
So this is about me. About me finding myself once again…in Him. It’s about me taking the time to focus on His promises and plans for my life. It’s about me writing down my thoughts and letting my goals become something I word towards each day. I’m not the happy person I once was and it’s time to find her and never let her go. Another blog about a journey… nothing more interesting than a cliché! 🙂
