Dear Readers, Inward Discoverists, Journey-Selfers, Retreat Warriors, Seekers, Travelers, Rainy Day Ponderers, Sunny Day Adventurists, and everyone who picks up the Challenge, Welcome!!!
Welcome to another Blogtemplation entry and thought progression. Today I submit an October icon of my repetitious bandana and goatee. It's been a few months since I have written and I've felt the fast tempo of life and busy strains of change this year since July of this year 2014. I've become the house cook and Chief Chef to my Family and have even been surprising myself in the creative success I am beginning to see. I'd like to offer several themes for you to drift amongst your thoughts, in no particular order;
Change your Family Roles for a period of time: I've been doing this out of pure need for the remainder of 2014 and through the first half of 2015. It's been rough at first determining who in my family would do what, however there are benefits and rewards slowly starting to show up as each of us is learning to adjust and adapt to our new roles. Don't discount the struggle and frustrations at first, that's called growth! I am sure this won't be the last time I share on this point. My experience is that I'm learning and enjoying success much sweeter when it happens. Try it for yourself and let me know your insights to this experiment!
Attend a Retreat of Faith and Healing: I've attended my fourth retreat recently and while I have started to begin a pattern of going on Retreat approximately every 6 months, they are only for a single weekend, Friday to Sunday, and I find that the time into personal contemplation with my Faith connection continues to do wonders for my soul, my heart, and even my body receives rest and nourishment. There are many ways to find these, I suggest you try one and write me back about your results. I would deeply enjoy hearing about the experience. I hope you share with close friends as well, friendship and stories of personal growth seem to be a successful combination.
My time is short today, and I hope this limited blogtemplation finds you well and encourages you to continue discussing, sharing, and opening up contemplation and wonder in all your circles of life.
