What’s Important?

Trying to look into my agitated mind today now that I have some time to reflect. Reading over a little journal I keep of things to contemplate and ran across this one:

“Ask yourself what’s really important and then have the courage to build your life around your answer.”

This seems simple until I think of what really is important to me…at this point I don’t really know. I can spout all of the usual responses but when you think about the second part of the question, it becomes more complex…..”have the courage to build your life around your answer.”

I don’t have a good answer but have decided to just think about it today.  I first think of health…happiness…family…honesty. Then the question remains how to build my life around one of those choices.  My response usually comes back to “my spirituality is most important”….my relationship to spirit trumps all other relationships….still don’t know exactly how to live it tho.

Today’s wonderings…..

  1. How lovely to hear from you once again; I was wondering how you were faring and had considered removing your blog from my subscription list. I am of course pleased that I did not.

    I think that when it comes down to it, and notwithstanding the myriad ways we adopt in order to reveal it, then what all of us want most fundamentally is contentedness.

    • So nice that you noticed that I haven’t been blogging lately. Writing comes and goes for me. I’ve been involved with Liberation Unleased groups lately and may now blog some of what was assimilated. I agree that contentedness is a good word to describe what is important which could be so many things to different people….
