It’s been a long time since I’ve written a personal post on Heartfully Heather. I think the last time I wrote personally was a month ago about how I planned on incorporating more exercise into my day with morning walks along with eating better. Then illness plagued me twice in three weeks slowing me down quite a bit and now fall weather has crept in (the high today is only supposed to be 41 degrees). This arthritic body hates the cold. So I will have to move my exercise indoors. That might include getting a gym membership over the winter months.
Over the last month, I feel like I’ve gone through a lot of spiritual growth. A lot of the things I used to care about, I see as superficial or not important anymore. Because of this though, I lack direction. I lack direction because I fail to see the long-term meaning in a lot of things. I’m not a person who has to have a lot of money to be happy, so my motivations aren’t money driven. I’m a person who values family and time with them more than having a lot of material things.
I know that one day my children, as they are now, will be mere memories. I want to experience as much “with them” as I can before they are adults leading their own lives. So I want to be as much involved in their growing up as possible. I want to make sure they grow up to be decent human beings who will want to change the world for good or at least have the right motivations in life.
That is literally the only thing that drives me forward at the moment. I don’t know what that says about me, but I’m not feeling things the way I used to. I’m much more cynical of worldly ambitions for short-lived pleasures or sacrificing relationships for the pursuit of things that don’t last. I guess I’m still trying to figure out who I am and what I stand for.
The above picture is my son running at his school’s fundraiser event. I’m glad I was able to see him run and that I could volunteer my time to help his school.
Is it cold or warm where you are?
