Signs

I am a Christian and a firm believer in God. While I have not been going to church as I should be lately, I have always believed that God provides us with signs for life’s journey. Whether it be something small or large, they are there right in front of us. It is just up to you to see them.

This has been the case for me recently. I have been going through some down times and feeling lost. Even wondering at times if I was aspiring for the right thing in wanting to move back to Western North Carolina. The Great One above has been giving me signs, especially the last few days that I am on the right track in wanting to be back in Asheville. Just in the last couple of days, I have seen license plates or something related to North Carolina during moments of sadness/frustration. Such a great and amazing thing. I have to smile and my spirits lift a bit when these signs come along. God’s greatness surrounds us, even during times we feel lost and without support. We all need to remember that.

“I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station,
through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.”
–George Washington Carver

Relaxation is who you are

From THE MINDFULIST :
“Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.”
Chinese proverb

This makes me think about how I have been trying to be of a relaxed mind as of late. I believe that if you believe you are relaxed and happy than your life will reflect this attitude. It’s all about believing and being. I now daily work to keep myself calm and not let things bother me. It’s a mentality that I enter each day with. I have learned that it is not worth letting life’s little annoyances and what have you pull you down. Relax and let them float by.
