Today many are celebrating Easter Holiday, the day that Jesus rose. While I did not take part in service this week. I have reflected a lot. I woke up this morning, feeling inspired. I took some time to go within and think about how the principles of this day could be applied to my life.
Good Friday, was a good day for me. Things went exceptionally well. I regained my well being, shifted my focus, and felt love in all areas of my life. It was a good and relaxing day.
Saturday, things were quiet and fun. Savvi and I hung out around the house and I unplugged for a while. Kaylah is enjoying spring break vacation with her dad. I miss her, but am glad she is having fun.
I woke up this morning, and thought about the principle of resurrection. It reminds me of the journey of life. No matter how much I improve, there is always change, growth, and rebirth in life.
We can shed, or kill, things that no longer serve us and reinvent ourselves. I have done this for many years and it has helped me tremendously. I am not ignoring the whole principle behind the holiday, but highlighting how I applied a lesson to my life from it. I don't consider myself a religious person, but I am very spiritual. I believe there is a lesson in everything, if you just pay attention.
This Sunday, in reflection, I asked myself what things do I want to leave buried and what things do I want to give life to? What about you? Are there some things you'd rather leave behind before pushing forward through the rest of this year?
The one thing that I could really think of this year, was letting go of worry and discord. With King gone I am always worried about him, our future, being able to hold things down without him, and many other things. This worry causes discord in my life. In order to be successful I have to let it go. This is where prayer and faith come in. I need to rely on that more, a lot more!
How will I do that this evening I will be updating my weekly schedule and planning the next quarter. I will be including more time for my spiritual practices and less work time on my schedule. Taking care of your soul is an act of love, and one that I want to give more attention to. This Easter Sunday was definitely a day of renewal for me. I hope that you had a blessed day.
