Take a look at your journal entries. What emotions are most prevalent? Looking at these journal entries anger, regret, discontentment pop up a lot. 1) Anger for certain situations in my life happening. A lot of anger directed at both parents. Its hard to forgive their lack of interest in my childhood, and now their grandchildren's life. 2) Oh the What and Ifs of life. If only my life had been different if x or y event would have turned out differently. I'm trying to see past those events and make today the best day of the rest of my life. I can't live in an alternative reality and expending energy thinking about one is ridiculous. 3) A friend of mine went to my wedding and spoke at our reception. He mentioned that I was someone that always settled for the easiest route and played it safe. I wasn't mad at him for saying that because it was true. He went on to say that he believed I didn't settle in choosing my current wife (she's my great love =). Most situations in my life are evaluated and take the safest route possible. Although my heart longs for risk, and maybe failure. 3 things I'm most thankful today 1) A message in church last night about Ephesians 6:10-24 2) Slept through the entire night last night. My bladder makes me get up at least once most nights or our youngest wakes up to cry. 3) A new week to look forward to.
