Day 9! I’m honestly surprised I’ve made it this far. (I mean, in Lent writing, not in life – although, that too).
I’m exhausted tonight. Much to do and no time to write, but discipline is only discipline if you do it when you don’t have time or inclination.
Here’s a feeling I have today: gratitude. I’m thankful. Filled with thanks. Much of it.
Cause I’m here in this moment in my life and I love the Gospel, and, because of the story I’ve been given, I don’t love it in the way most people talk about loving it, but I love it in a way that changes me deeply and irrevocably and makes me actually different. And it makes me actually free to love people differently than I ever thought I would and I am free to be in reckless and ridiculous relationships with others because of the story I’ve been given, and I see that playing out in my life.
And I get to work with amazingly creative people and I get to go to school. And I have like three of my dream jobs all at the same time.
And it just feels like – if all of the pain and all the chaos lead me here: to a place where I love better and fuller and I believe more deeply and freely and I care less about stupid things and more about people – then, thank you.
Those are all my thoughts today. <3
