I forgot to post yesterday, so here are two entries in one day. The first my thoughts on the word ‘woman’, the second a fictional piece that came to mind when thinking of the word ‘under’. Continue reading “Woman|Under”
Wednesday. Hump day. The middle of the week. Continue reading “Enlighten”
It’s been a while since I’ve touched base here. Thought I would pick up some prompts from http://www.journalwild.com once more. I feel like I need a burst of writing inspiration and what better way than to have individual words to jog my thoughts into action.
It’s already November, which is hard to fathom. Only two months left of 2016. Goodness. It’s been a full year and it hasn’t ended, yet. Continue reading “Journaling from the heart “
It’s Thursday, the day of Throwbacks, a good day as any to reflect on my first year of marriage. We celebrated our anniversary on the weekend, a long weekend by all accounts. Tuesday was the day of our actual anniversary; the 13th of September. We went away to spend time together out of the rat race and I can tell you now it was much needed. I’ve returned to work feeling refreshed and positive about the future. A future that God is taking us to, and through. I am forever grateful for His presence in all this.

What’s on my mind right now? Would you like a list? Here goes: The top six things on my mind right now. Continue reading “Top Six things on my mind right now “
And so. Time for new challenges. I’m free. As a bird, or however the saying goes. New doors will open and that’s saying something at least. I’m excited for what this season will bring. Excited, and nervous, but that’s entirely normal. All I know is that dwelling on the past does nothing. Looking to the future whilst being comfortable with the present is where it’s at.
I’m going to take advantage of the time I have, to start that book. To enjoy reading a good book or two or a hundred, and to appreciate the life God has given me.
Next month, my friend and I are going to see The Madden Brothers at Crown Perth. I can hardly wait. Their debut album ‘Greetings From California’ is an absolute masterpiece. But, I’ll not bore you with details as I’ve already written a review piece that will appear in next months Simple Plan Space online magazine.
Right now, I’m sitting here, eating chicken carbonara whilst writing another chapter of The Uprising. I am also rewatching season two of Hawaii Five-0 in view of finishing all four seasons that I have on DVD so I can then catch up with Season 5. [Book ‘Em Danno is my text message tone…lol]
And, I am also relistening to James Macpherson’s message from the weekend.
What you dwell on will determine what you dwell in.
Very pertinent to my life.
These verses from Psalm 16 is what I leave you with for now.
I have set the Lord always before me. Therefore, my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure. Psalm 16: 8-9
I’m not a social butterfly. I have my moments when I can spend time with a group of people and be totally awesome. But, there are times when I just want to be by myself with a good book and my thoughts.
Being around people too long exhausts me, to be honest. And since I work in a profession that means I’m in contact with people all the time I guess I’m perpetually exhausted. By people.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy other people’s company, but sometimes I just have to give myself space to recharge.
And right now is one of those times.
