More than enough

I got a super amount of work done today. I managed to babysit and get the rest of my writing goal done. I am really glad. I am ridiculously excited about finishing this book. I will have to discipline myself to not write until Monday, but I have come to learn that breaks and sleep make my writing time much more efficient than pushing through.

I am so incredibly grateful. It is something serving at the homeless shelter does for me. It always inspires me to be thankful. Oddly, not so much because I have a home. More because it makes me really feel like I am a part of this community. There are all these people around me, and this is the closest thing I will find to home on earth. I am a part of this. it feels so good to know the streets and know the people.

I have been thinking over the last few days how odd it is that no matter how much I give or how little I make, I will always have the same amount. It is phenomena I have noticed over the last year or so. I will always have enough. What I have to sacrifice in my diet might change. The clothes I wear might change. But I will always have enough.

I have been struggling a little bit yesterday and today. I am not entirely sure why. I think it was just being anxious about having not prioritized writing as highly as I wanted to. We are going into the Amends lessons in my Thursday step study. It might be that I am simply in the beginning phases of working through some amends preparation. But then, as I tell my friends, if you are in a constant conversation with God, those things will work themselves out without being forced. I have, after all, been working on becoming transparent in some of the relationships I have been really closed off in. It has been good, and it has come out of conversations with God. It did not have to be forced.

As I tell my friends, all I have to do to accomplish the purpose of my life is wake up, follow God for one day, and go back to bed. All I have to do to live a happy life is wake up, live one day with contentment, and go back to bed. Repeat that over and over again. My life will then be entirely filled with contentment and His purpose.

God grant me the serenity to live one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardship as the pathway to peace…

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross, and follow me. If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? – Matthew 16:24-26
