It's my 500th blog post today! I can't believe that there have been that many, that I've had that much to say. In the last two weeks I've found that the balance of my life has pulled me away from this blog, to dreams of starting a new blog, an edgier blog, maybe a place to talk about fashion, about DIY home stuff. And then I ask, but why not on Welcoming Spirit?
Why not "bloom where you are planted?"
Why is it that each of us always wants to be up for the next big thing?
I can't figure out why this space feels a little too familiar, why it feels like it can't morph into something else.
Or why the balance of life pulls me away from retreat work, away from time set aside to think about God, away from the places in my heart that I've loved for so long.
Has it been too much? Is it time to take a break and look at things more ... of this life? Of focus elsewhere, and come back to the spiritual side later? Not that I'd leave it altogether, but that for a time, my focus might be on family, on our home, on making the day to day life we have easier.
In some ways my retreat leading love feels like a selfish hobby, something that takes me from other things, something that maybe has played itself out. That perhaps there is a new season coming, that will be as beautiful and amazing and cherished as this one has been.
And perhaps this blog will still come along for the ride.
Would you like to share a post? I'd like to introduce you to a few of my sisters in the journey :) - my (in)courage group. Link it up, ladies!
