Happy Friday....so grateful for the weekend (and this weather)! We all need to get outdoors - all - weekend-long! This will be a fairly short post because this weekend is going to be a blur for me - an insightful blur so, much to share next week.
Also, to let you know, next week we are jumping into back into health, food, sustainability, etc. And I promised I would share why I am really drawn to Austin, TX. I definitely have the travel bug now (something fierce) and I am already itching for another adventure.
So, this photo above. I emailed 10 of my close friends and asked them to tell me - in one sentence - what their immediate thought was when they saw this photo. I am going to share there answers below. And rather then me share commentary about it, I am just asking you to consider how powerful our thoughts are. And then to examine where these thoughts are coming from. I think there answers are kind of fascinating because they are so varied and it goes to show how our thoughts - in so many ways - shape our reality.
Here you go & these are quotes but all friends wished to be unnamed. I asked them to write me one sentence beginning w/ 'I see'....
I see materialism, someone who is into money and luxury.
I see my husband and I making smores by that fire.
I see Tuscany and a vacation home that we are dreaming of.
I see a huge space of nothing. I would never want a home that big, I wouldn't know how to decorate it.
I see a room in a home that is not my style - I do not like those square small windows.
I see a new family home that a couple is moving into with their family.
I see a life that needs color.
I see big opportunity.
I see my dream life.
I see nothing but I feel a word when I look at this space and it's alone.
What do you see? And more importantly, do you ever examine your thoughts? I think guarding our thoughts is so important.
Philippians 4:8: Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.
And that's a wrap, enjoyyyy the weekend. And go have a healthy adventure. -
-more next week.
