March Madness - Day 4

Be Spontaneous! It can open your eyes to new things!

When was the last time you did something without a plan?

Sometimes our lives get so regimented that we run on auto pilot. I'm sure you've been there before.

  • It's the place where you get where you're going with no thought. You take the same route over and over and rarely deviate. 
  • It's the marriage where's you co-exist in the same house but it doesn't feel like home. You know what needs to get done and it happens, sometimes taking your spouse for granted. 
  • It's the parent who raises all of his/her children the same way. The parent fails to take into account that each child is an individual and may need something different. 

Auto pilot can be a good thing....at times. But only sometimes.

There is a whole world of experience and excitement that we miss out on when we fail to change things up.

If you're anything like me, you don't like change.

However, I'm learning that change is inevitable. Most importantly, there's so much life and opportunity waiting for you on the other end of change.

Over the past month, I have experienced a change in job, residence, and family circumstance. It's a lot of change all at one time, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My mind is open like never before.

That's what happens when you decide to do something that is not all the way thought through.

YOU SHIFT!

I don't know how long we can pay to run two households.
I don't know how long we can all be apart from each other.
I don't know where I will live in 45 days.
I don't know where the kids will attend school next year.

All I know is that we are LIVING IN THE MOMENT....TODAY!

That's what spontaneity is all about.

What can you do today that's spontaneous?

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
