This morning as I was cooling down from my workout routine (well, it used to be my routine until I was out of town for at least a month and a half and hadn't done it; so I am starting over again and it is my routine again) I was listening to my Josh Groban playlist. The song that I love to end my stretching with is "You Are Loved (Don't Give Up):
"Don't Give up, it's just the weight of the world; when your heart's heavy I will lift it for you.
Don't give up because you want to be heard; if silence keeps you, I will break it for you.
Everybody wants to be understood. Well, I can hear you. Everybody wants to be loved; don't give up, because you are loved!
Don't give up; it's just the hurt that you hide, when your lost inside I'll be there to find you. Don't give up, because you want to burn bright; if darkness blinds you, I will shine to guide you. Everybody wants to be understood well I can hear you. everybody wants to be loved don't give up, BECAUSE you are loved. "
Of course, Josh Groban's voice is wonderful and the music is amazing; it really strikes a chord with me each time I hear it. I "liken" the words to my life and imagine that my Father in Heaven is saying these words to me, and that "lifts" my spirit.
It's been almost 6 months since I have "blogged" so I've almost forgotten how and I am starting over. This time around I have no "plan" or "agenda" in mind for "Thoughtfullness". I think I am going to take it one day at a time until, and unless, I am guided to a certain path or subject. I would still love for it to be "a discussion a day" and to have input and experiences shared; that was my goal in the beginning and it would still be a happy outcome. If nothing else, this "blogging" thing will help me to stay accountable.
This morning I re-shared a comment by a friend of mine from facebook, "If you put off everything til you're sure of it, you'll never get anything done."---Norman Vincent Peale'
I thought to myself, "am I sure about what to blog about"? The answer was "no" (I have many ideas and many thoughts and sometimes it's difficult to "pick" which one to share), but I am not giving up on it and doing it anyway!
What things are you not "sure" of that you'd like to do anyway?
