Becoming wiser.

The more I walk with Christ the more I will look like him.

He created me to be like him.

I really want to look like him. More than anything. I want to be an honest Christ Follower.

I have important decisions to make. Decisions that only I can make. They worry me. My peace will only be found in Christ.

God is teaching me to stand up for what is right. I am growing and slowly becoming an adult to where I have to decide whats right and decide whats worth fighting for. I have been faced with an issue. An issue that gives me the opportunity to stand firm about my own beliefs and convictions.

The Bible says to continually seek the things above.

What a better opportunity when stuck in between two things.

Above, is where my answers lie.

Above, is where my heart rests and finds peace.

Above, tells me whats worth fighting for.

And above, is where I find my boldness and strength to do so.

Think about it.

I pay attention to little things. Sometimes they are really little. I enjoy it. I appreciate the little things people do. and I am happy when I do little things for people.

Make efforts to do tiny encouraging things for people.

Even strangers.

Always be thinking of how you can help someone or make someone smile.

Know that they are struggling with something. Thats what I do. It makes it easier to be kind to them and help them.

Find different ways to say thanks. Whether its in person or not. Next time youre in the Starbucks drive through buy coffee for the next person in line. Take the time to talk to strangers. Ask them how their day is or when they get off work. Write a note to someone. Mail something to someone. Little things matter. Probably more than you know. bc whoever you blessed, probably wont tell you. And thats a good thing, bc if they did, we might get prideful. and then we might start doing it for us and not them.

Im trying to make this a habit. Im trying to keep my mind on others. Im trying to be more interested in people. Im trying to forget myself.

Kindness can change someone.

"Do you know what I need? To escape into the mountains. Surrounded by tall trees, I will lay on the moss, and breathe in the scent of mushrooms, flowers and wet soil."

— Les Discrets

This sums up how Im feeling now.

Im wanting to escape. From all of life. Just for a short time. To refresh. and invigorate. and uplift. Im not depressed. Just in need of mountains. and to breathe in mountain air.
