Present //

In searching and wresting with what this blog is, what I want this slice of internet to be, I know I want it to be mine. And something that is so important to me,  is being present where I am.

It is so easy to compare, to look forward, to be eager. And those are not bad things, in the right place. But man, it is so important to be looking for the good in where you are right now. To be looking for the beauty in each moment we are given. When you truly, really start doing (or trying to do) that, it can change your life.

As seasons change, be aware. The only constant in life is change. So the seasons will keep rolling by. Leaves bud, grow, wither, and fall. And just as sure as the leaves will continue as they have for all time, so our lives will see change.

Ultimately, I want to have peace with where I am, where I am going, and where I’ve been. I believe when all three of those things come together and we can let them be what they are, there can be peace. Because coming to that place requires that you forgive, process, wrestle, and rest.

I enjoy this little slice of the world wide web. Thank you for being here. Thank you for giving it some of your time. Here’s to where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going.
