Beautiful, exhausting, endearing, numbing, wonderous, uncertain, inspiring, ugly, finite.
And so much more.
We can walk in the midst of loveliness, and forget to enjoy it. Not see it. Or not even bother to walk.
How foolish. Wasteful even.
One Herdy Girl, and a faithful, happy dog – just taking a brisk morning walk.
Refocusing, recalculating, recalibrating.
I remember my dad teaching me that when riding a bicycle, we tend to drive toward where we’re focusing. Same with a life.
This Herdy Girl needed nudging, needed to stop navel-gazing, needed to mind where she was steering.
As paraphrased by E. Peterson, “Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse.”
My focus today? Gratefulness, companionship, faith, health.
What have you been focusing on?
