I have spent a lot of time this past month or so paying better attention to my inner dialog. I'll tell you what, it's been pretty chaotic inside here. I've had a lot to deal with spiritually and emotionally lately and I have therefore been putting a lot of contemplation, prayer, and study into the decisions and trials I am facing currently. And you know what? I have had a break through of sorts. What I mean by this isn't that I have learned anything completely new, it's just that being able to sort through everything inside of me created a chance for a lot of important pieces to come together and create something new right in the center of me. And now I feel all bright and airy inside. Like I'm filled with sunshine. And I like that. I am reveling in the peace and clarity that is there. No problems have been magically solved, but I have gained a whole new perspective on them and it makes them seem so much less...daunting. They are still mountains, but instead of a walk along a rocky crag where I feel sure that I will fall to my death at any moment, it will be more like a difficult hike up a breathtakingly beautiful path. And I may even be looking forward to them.
