Today I wanted to write a little bit about two subjects that seem to be everywhere in my life.
I'll first touch on the topic of fear.
I think that up to this point in my life I have lived in fear. Not fear of anything in particular but fear of fear. Fear of missed opportunities, fear of saying something (or worse not saying anything at all) I wonder how different our lives would be if we lived without fear. Living here has really opened my eyes to the fact that we are who we are, if people don't like you for it then move on because there are more people out there that do like you ( unless you're hitler or something) and tell the people that you enjoy being around that you in fact enjoy being around them. Boom step one to a happier life.
The second topic is simplicity. So I want you to close your eyes and picture this. I am sitting in the break room eating some goldfish and looking out the window when all the sudden boom thunder and lightning storm.
If you know me you will know that one of my most favorite things are lightning storms ( i love the smell,the energy, the unpredictability of it all) anyways there is a kid sitting next to me and we were just talking when he points out that lightning is just all these particles and its them smashing together and that makes lightning. He was going all scientific on me so i rudely interrupted him and asked why cant people accept things like lightning for the beauty it is, why do we feel like we have to analyze and pick apart every single thing in this life? why cant we accept things for what they are? then he looked at me like i'm crazy and i went on eating my goldfish. the end (you can open your eyes now. although i just realized your eyes were open the whole time because you read all of that. silly me) Back to my point... I have the gospel in my life. I know that i'm doing the things I need to be. I know i'm where I need to be at this time. and as long as i'm doing that the Lord wont let me completely mess everything up. so I need to stop worrying about everything and enjoy the simple things in life.. like lightning and goldfishies.
