Lent: Day 15
Monday, March 25, 2019
It's amazing how something as small as setting aside a particular tool reveals so much. Between the concussion and having become far too dependant on the scale and having allowed myself to get far too busy for various reason (all good and valid but still) I am discovering that I have completely forgotten what I like/want and just started eating mindlessly again. Even when it's healthy foods in the right caloric amounts, that's no way to live. I've gotten into a rut. I've forgotten what I really enjoy not just eating but how I'm spending my time and so forth. I'm on autopilot and that's not what I want.
I'm in a time crunch on a project right now. The deadline is Wednesday. The event is Saturday. Sunday I put my plan fully into actin. This week is devoted to remembering what I like. What foods do I like? What do I want to eat for lunch each day? What about dinner? How can I get some kind of idea what my family can do to help me if I don't know what I want anymore?
Where am I spiritually? I'm observing Lent because there is nothing like it in the wheel of the year. Same with Advent. These are the Christian elements I value and have kept in my Christopagan path so far. Is that path still working for me?
These are the things I am contemplating in this season. Where am I on the path and is it a path that is still taking me where I want to go. My word for the year this year is Journey. It is proving to have been the right choice thus far.
