Ugh. Well, I am already tired of writing about exercise. It’s definitely not my muse. And I can only write so much about my phone calls without breaking confidentiality and all that. So I think that though I will continue to update the Blogrimage world on my progress, I’ll be keeping it short, and then have fun just writing. Afterall, writing was one of my purposes in all of this.
That said, this morning I dusted off my pilates video and got at it while my daughter (ever so helpful is she) criticised my technique. It felt good. Later, I got a sweet interruption to my afternoon studies. Ms. Lovely called me back! Man, Lovely and I had some serious catch-up talking to do; we talked for an hour and fifteen minutes. So much for studies… 😀 It was totally worth it. Then I called my momma. I love talking to her, no matter how short we like to keep our talks. I think she and I have similar relationships with telephones.
Today I am thinking (again) about honesty and confrontation. Sometimes in life I have found it easier to say nothing than to speak up and possibly hurt someone. But sometimes not speaking up can have negative consequences of its own. And then other times I have spoken too soon, (and probably without checking with The Spirit inside me if I should proceed) and have caused damage and hurt. It’s these times that flash through my mind and make me question what I want to say.
I will not pretend to have any answers here.
Some thoughts: First, check my intention and motives. Is Love the driving force? Is the person ready to hear it? And then, do I have the green light from God – a peace in my heart if you will. The more I ask Christ for direction, the more clearly I can hear His answers.
