Bucket List

I feel so blessed for all that has come into my life as of lately. I have always known that anything good that I accomplish is a blessing from God and I can acknowledge that and realize that without God on my side I am nothing.

I have all these deep thoughts that run through my head, but never put them down in writing, and since I never really Blog, I only post pictures, articles or quotes, I want to try to make time to do this.

I always appreciate reading other people's blogs that have taken time to write or share personal, spiritual experience's. I know that I don't always have a huge spiritual experience every single day, but I have little things that happen that help me learn or grow.

It seems that I have been so busy working and involved in life that I haven't really done anything that I actually like or want to do for so long, so I am trying to make more time for things in my life that bring me happiness and joy.

I was at the gym the other day and I was watching people walk in and was studying there faces as they walked in the gym. One guy that I was watching walked into the gym with a look on his face of anxiety. He looked like he was so not happy to be at the gym and just fulfilling a duty. I can definitely relate to that feeling, I have not wanted to workout on many occasion, but have done it anyway, since I knew that for me it is one of those things that I have to do, almost like food or water. I just feel better when I work out. But it still made me think about how often do we spend our time in life doing things that truly bring us joy? How often do we spend our time doing things that we really don't want to do, but do because we feel pressure from society to be a certain way, or do a certain activity?

I know that there are definitely certain things that I do, where I find true bliss and joy. I love the outdoors, anytime I can be outside either running, hiking, on the water, in the sun, I am truly happy. Spending time with a loved one that lifts me up or has the kind of energy that I hope that I have is always worth my time. I love my dog, animals in general. I love to come home and sing to my dog and hang out with her. She follows me around the house until I hold her, she really loves me and appreciates having me around. I love to bake, cook, anything that has to do with food, eating it or preparing it, serving my creations to others. I love to make people beautiful, whether it be hair, makeup, toenails, fingernails. I love to touch and be affectionate. I believe touch can be so healing if it comes from the right person. I know how good it feels to have my muscles massaged, I love to help put someone else at ease by touch or massage. Learning new things about our Universe and God's creations. Educating myself on all different levels.

I think that our society we are so busy and stressed out that our minds are so preoccupied with things that don't really matter, or that waste our energy. Whether it be an insecurity that we have about assuming how another feels about us, or a negative feeling that we have about another person. Not being able to forgive or let go of certain negative emotions. Life is just too short to not enjoy every second of it. I watched the Bucket List the other night and it was really inspiring. I want to write a bucket list for myself and work on making those things come to pass :)
