More Than Ever
Here I sit at my newly created nook thinking about my day, whilst also mentally preparing myself for returning to work tomorrow after some extended holiday time. Most of today was spent running errands and keeping busy so as to not think of the things that cause my heart to be sad, for one reason or another. Sigh.
I've been thinking about alot of things lately, including changes coming and how/where I want to be in the coming months. Solitude and seclusion is good only for a period of time; I feel like I've had my fill of both. Although my life is filled with more friends and such compared to this time last year, my heart is longing for something more. Maybe some of it's that I've done a great job tucking away from the world other valuable talents of mine; protecting myself from potential additional hurts, etc. Could it be time to unleash them once again?
With that said, it's also important for me to not lose the balance of things I've found over the last couple of years, including my faith, due to the losses I've endured. Though painful and no desire to repeat, each one has taught me much about how fragile life is.
I've a lot of faith now more than ever and hoping it will bring the clarity desired to make myself and this year the best it can be.
