A few months ago I wrote a post about a beautiful day as an introvert and loner – lounging all day at home, watching movies in and out of naps, drinking tea, and reading. Well, add the past five days and one of my favorite families to make it a perfect match. No cell phone reception, minimal internet, and acres upon acres of valley. It was nothing like being a loner or an introvert however, it was extraordinary. It felt great to get off the grid and prepare for these upcoming months.
Leaving technology and stepping into wisdom. Nothing could truly gear me up more for a big change. Within the past several days I continually felt like a nearly empty cup, being poured into over and over. Filling with truth, wisdom, kindness, laughter, confidence, and love. Recipe for greatness. I am beyond thankful.
My takeaway messages:
Life is not a gift. It’s an entrustment. An entrustment we must accept and use wisely.
A consistently thankful heart brings life. Awareness of all the blessings around leads to a changed mindset. No longer are little things simplistic, but clues to greater things.
With seldom wisdom before you, it’s much easier to believe I am actually wise. How silly.
Phones are overrated. Granted, I enjoy using my phone, but I can go without.
Giggling is a lifesaver. Ha, seriously. From getting a shot or ripping off a bandaid to critiquing a Disney Channel Original movie – I giggle. As long as I’m giving a chuckle, I’m solid.
Nothing can shake off love. Nothing. Love always remains.
“Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.” Isaiah 54:10
Very profound there, Ally
