Well I haven't blogged in a couple of weeks now. Life is busy, in my life's busyness I have been trying to balance work, school, self care and everything else.
I have also been doing a lot of reflection. So instead of my Monday Musings I suppose I'll do Tuesday Musings. It doesn't have a ring to it but that's OK.
- I had to laugh at myself recently. I was in a situation in which I was stirring inside about my perceived selfishness of another. Then I realized, that the selfishness I was upset about was the selfishness in me. I was stirring with thoughts of "well what about me?" That statement is selfishness defined. Me, the pursuit of me and my needs, others are important too as long as they do not threaten my wants and needs. In my reflection I was brought back to scripture: “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?" (Matthew 7:3 NIV) I judge more than I know. I get frustrated at people for things that I have done. I am learning that I am never too advanced to be beyond someone else, even if I think that I have learned. I must also allow other the freedom of their personal journey of learning and growing.
- You cannot have Peace or Harmony around you if you do not have it within you. You cannot give what you do not have.
- I am a creative type and it is very hard for me to accomplish things without having time for some type of creative expression. In other words if I have a task to complete, all I can think about the next thing I will create. Does anyone else have this problem? Please normalize my rationale lol.
I think that's all I've got for today. Or yesterday. Life is so busy... Just didn't want to leave my bloggy-blog hangin. Hopefully in the coming weeks I can post more regularly.
