Probably between four or five... I have sat down to write a new blog so many times but have been stopped for various reasons, accidentally closing the browser without saving is the most frequent reason for not finishing...
So, here it goes, fifth attempt to write- Things have been busy here, but not overwhelmingly busy which I like... I have been getting some pretty decent hours in at work and even picked up an extra shift this week! Speaking of this week, so far it has been amazing! My parents got home from their little adventure to Chicago, I got a new piercing, work is going well, and I feel like I am getting things checked off my list of 'To Do's'. The weather has been excellent summer weather, lots of sunshine with blue skies although autumn is coming soon and I am looking forward to some cooler days.
I have been sitting out on our back porch a lot more lately, I find it really relaxing out there. I've had this thought in my head for a while now, it just kind of popped into my head one day and so I've been pondering it for a bit, so I will try my best to share this somewhat complete thought....I always hear people say "the battle is won or lost in the heart" but I wonder how many people actually realize there is a battle going on... I know for me I can be quite passive sometimes and then I realize that I am just going through the motions. My heart is definitely not in battle...for anything! What kind of difference would there be if we took into account the difference we could make by engaging our hearts (and I don't mean feelings when I say heart, I mean our whole selves, essentially everything we consider ourselves to be)...That is pretty much how far I've gotten into thinking about this, I know there is more refining to go into this idea and I hope it makes sense...I tried to explain it as best I could. If you have any input or discussion into this I'd love to chat it up with you!
