Two insightful thoughts came to me yesterday:
Insight #1: I spend so much time taking care of everyone else, I should take 15-20 minutes a day to focuse on my own inner spiritual growth and being.
Insight #2: I should use my Reverend title more. I worked hard to earn it and it reminds me that I am, indeed, a minister. Which focuses my thoughts and emotions on being more spiritual, which in turn makes me happy.
Why these insights? Eh, who knows. Perhaps it’s because I signed up for the Oprah Web Event of the Century (or whatever they’re calling it) and am reading Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth. My mum talked me into it. I’ve had lots of practice not doing what my mum’s told me I should do, so I thought I’d try out a new tactic and follow some of her suggestions and advice.
(Note to Mum: “Some” not “all.” Stop celebrating already.)
Another insight occurred to me today.
Insight #3: Writing makes me happy, as does connecting with other people. Maybe I should also take a few minutes (if I can find them somewhere) and write a little bit more…like on here. I go back and forth about the whole blog = public journal thing. But, let’s face it, I’m not going to find the time to, say, write a book any time soon. So I might as well write the little bits and pieces that float through my head. Maybe. We’ll see how that goes. “Making” extra time means it comes from somewhere and I’ve already cut down on showering.
