Our Purposeful Spontaneity

smile

It’s amazing how easy it is to lose ourselves in a moment. And then to come out of that moment and realize what it really meant, in the context of the greater scheme of life. Should every step we take be taken with purpose? Or is it acceptable to be spontaneous and not look before we leap?

Maybe we are meant to do both.

This spot is just as peaceful as it was 10 years ago. I used to sneak off after the 11 o’clock service to sit and dream about the future.

My only hope in life is to have as much confidence and swag as this poodle.

Where Do We Belong

Home isn’t a place – it’s an emotion. It’s the feeling that we belong, an innate craving that we spend our lives seeking to satisfy. Sometimes we find home in a place. Most of the time we find home in other people – our parents, our partners, our children, and our pets.

The most important home that we will find in this life is the one within ourselves. That home is the one that must survive the darkest days and the longest nights – all without the help of anyone else. It’s so easy to get lost. We long for fulfillment, and we look for it in the wrong places. It’s terrifying, but we must look inward for the answer.

Once we discover ourselves, we can open up to the rest of the world and what it offers. Once we love ourselves, we are strong enough to receive love from others.
