I haven’t gotten morning bible posts up all week, but I’ve still been doing them in my own journal and that is what is most important. It’s been a busy week since we got back last weekend from boondocking, and well we are at it again this weekend. Except we aren’t boondocking, we are staying at a campground, and the wifi so far is awesome which will be great because I have to work while we are here.
I’ve learned a lot about people this week. Types of people to be specific. Type A people and type B people and I tell you what, type B people are so much happier. Not only that type B people tend to be a lot nicer. When you are happy you are usually nice to others and treat them well. I would definitely rather put my faith in God and others, accept what some people can do, and what they can’t do and give it all to God each night when my head hits the pillow. I’ve been there though. I’ve struggled in the type A world before, not only at a news station, where its often vital to have Type A people running things, but that transferred over into how I treated my young toddlers and the need to keep a perfect house. I’ve seen what it does to my kids and my husband. I’ve seen it make them fearful of me, and now I know how it feels, and its the last thing I want to continue to do to them. I learned to let go, teach and encourage them in a much different way about 3 to 4 years ago. But some people learn this much later in life and after they’ve destroyed relationships because of it. I cherish the relationships I have, and relationships matter more than perfectly placed things or the idea of perfection that can only be obtained by the vision of what is going on in one person’s head.
At any rate, I will enjoy this season with my kids. One day they will be out there in the world trying to make things happen. I want them to be goal-oriented, but I also want them to forgive themselves when they don’t quite reach those goals so that they can start over without the burden of feeling like failures. That’s really where motivation can get ya before you even get going.
But until the work week begins again we are enjoying another weekend away. We are at St. Vrains State Park. We’ve already endured a thunderstorm and heatwave and we are hoping to get the kayak out on the water very soon.
We’ll check back in with you next week with how the rest of the trip went!
