It is the season of Lent in the church calendar. The season of self examination and repentance. Someone once told me we feel it whether we're Catholic or not. Maybe that explains why I've been feeling so much regret lately, and an urge to change my ways.
One thing I realized is that by praying for what I want, I actually create "more want."
Another is that I spend way to much time trying to figure life out (and asking God to help me figure it out) instead of celebrating life (as the Spirit wishes.)
I get trapped in my mind and it's such a small space.
The other day when one of my friends was feeling bad I told her to take a walk and to look as far as she could. (The far view restores the soul.)
From the newly reopened bridge in my neighborhood I can see almost to Mexico. I just have to find the right angle to get the highest view.
