Some stream of consciousness writing for hump day...

I have been reading things recently (let's be clear...I read things a lot), like this smart girl, from this great book, this beautiful mess, or this little gem.  I am fully cognizant of the humor that is my love of blogs/online articles...I get the joke and actually am in on it as well.  You know what my reading is at its core though is a love of people.  Whether that is faith, fashion, political, kid, woman, or adoption based...I just love being privy to how people think and conduct their lives.  I have no shortage of interesting people who bring such perspective to my life on a daily basis.  Why is any of this important you ask?  Well because hypothetically it is really easy to be in a place of lack of motivation when you have graduated from school and are in a transitional time in your life.  Of course I don't have any first hand knowledge of what that must be like, but I have just heard.  All kidding aside, I went on a walk today with a friend who is in a similar boat as I am and we were discussing how easy it is to get in a rut of the status quo and how to be able to step back and be more big picture minded.  Sometimes all it takes is going on a walk with a friend or reading something, and for that I am thankful.  I hope for it to always be that simple. The end.

"You were designed to feel this awkward because it drives you to find life."     

“When we learn to be aware of what is around us as well as in us, we begin to connect with the rest of the world in new ways. We become conscious of little things and their beauty. We come to see obscure things and their meaning. We are touched by quiet things and their power. When we learn to be where we are, we gain perspective on life. Yesterday loses its hold and tomorrow loses its allure. Where we are becomes the ground of our salvation, the reason for our joy and the acme of our achievement.” —Joan Chittister

  1. So I'm behind in my reading...and was completely oblivious to this kind shout out. Lame. You, however, are lovely. Hope you are so thoroughly enjoying your DC/training time. XXXOO, friend.
