My family is of the utmost importance. When it comes to them I stand strong and I will not falter. John and my children are my life lines.
When it comes to volunteering for everything that comes my way, some things have got to go. I must be selective. No guilt here.
When it comes to faith, it is a journey.
I have always been told how to believe, what to believe, when to believe. Lately I have learned to question everything. I need to know the how, what, and when for myself. I am learning to let go of the guilt I have been taught when my how, what, when and why is different.
I am amazed by the people that can walk away from the things in their life that is not working for them. I am even more amazed that their parents and family support them as they walk a different path.
Jen Hatmaker said in a recent post,
Walk away gracefully; we need not fire parting shots over the bow. That only creates more losers, and you're better than that. Take your dignity and self-respect and precious humanity, and be proud of the way you handled yourself one year from now. You don't need to be proven right; much more is at stake than validation. You'll never regret being gracious, but you might deeply regret burning a bridge that might one day be safe enough to venture back over.My plan this year is to walk away gracefully with no parting shots.
