I know you are wondering what the universe said to me...and while I intended to write about it straight away (if nothing else...to at least quiet the baby rumors!!!)...the universe had other things in mind for me this week.
It was a full and eventful week as we watched Melanie's 3 boys. They were angels...but add three more kids to mix, and my house is a little nuts. (I didn't even remember to take photos (gasp) ... that's how crazy it was.)
But...back to what the universe was saying.
I have been reading this blog...about a man who found out he has cancer and how he is coming to grips with what this means for his life.
And David has gotten me to think...about my own life and my purpose.
I have been thinking a lot about trials and the experiences that make us who we are.
Every choice we make...every step we take leads us down one path or another.
And sometimes...if we are lucky...no, no...lucky isn't the right word here.
Sometimes...if we are deliberate, conscious, knowing...we take the steps that we are supposed to take. We live the life we were meant to live.
Now, I suppose this is the ideal life, however, there are times in our lives where we just put one foot in front of the other and go, regardless of the direction.
Well, I have been doing a lot of that lately.
For whatever reason, I have spent the better part of the last year filling up my days...and still not having enough time for the things that really matter.
Does your life get like that?
Well, I have been feeling (strongly) like I need to take my life back...and be a little more deliberate. To have care in where I choose to spend my time.
I guess, the bottom line for me, is that I have been feeling "casual" in my spiritual quest...and it's time to have a little more purpose.
I still need to put one foot in front of the other...but this time...I want it to make sure it means something.
So...if you (Troy) were waiting for me to tell you we are having another baby then i'm sorry to disappoint. But...right now, I'm just grateful the universe and I are on speaking terms.
