Life rules we all have them. They can be phrases that we’ve heard and copied as our own or things we have made up. They are statements of how we want to live our life, facts about ourselves, ideas of how we should live, principles to follow and universal laws. These have been playing on my mind over the last week.
I’ve been reading “7 habits of highly effective people” by Stephen Covey. I’ve discovered by reading it there are lots of things in there that a lot inspirational speakers have talked about and touched upon. In the book he talks about having your own personal mission statement. So I’ve been trying to think of mine but then my thoughts go back to some statements I wrote out a while ago about how I want to live my life – mostly about how I should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day and to cleanse, tone and moisturize my face twice a day…(Yep you’ve guessed it – don’t always manage it). It also lead me to review my aspirations for this year so far I’m sort of keeping them – which is good but as aspirations go – could do better!
I’m still stash busting knitting wise – I’ve completed the berets and now I’m trying to get my head around King Cole’s Magic Dolman Jacket. I cooked Herman at the weekend.
I only managed to send him on to one other. This lead me to analyse a lot of things that go on in my head. Things like have I failed in the continuum of life? With that and making sure my pregnant friend, who was staying, was enjoying herself despite the snow made me cling onto God for extra comfort.
Yesterday saw the end of a two and a half-year wait (although we will be waiting for the next bit) on a journey with God down a dark path. Yesterday hubby had a lumbar puncture to find out more about the lump in his brain. During this wait my relationship with God has grown deeper and deeper. It has concluded with me writing some more life rules that I try to follow. One is based on the bible 1 Corinthians 11. This journey that I am on I’ve had to find a happy medium – a place where I am happy with God and feel I am obeying his will, without causing offense and discomfort to others.
During my wait at the hospital yesterday I was reminded several times that although no matter how dark a place is God is always there shining a light. No matter how bad you feel you are loved and are blessed. Always be grateful no matter what for there is always someone worse off than you – that seems to be a universal law.
