Day 61: Perspective

It's Day 61 (I think) of #100DaysofHannah and #100DaystoOffload

I think the worst part of trying to blog for 100 days straight is when you get to the end of the day, are completely exhausted and just want to sleep - only to remember: I still have to blog.

With that in mind, I have a feeling that in 40 days, I won't continue this daily blogging bit.
Maybe I'll try to aim for 3 days a week.
Who knows.
It'd just be nice to have some flexibility.

Right now, I honestly feel like I don't have much flexibility in life.
Which I'm super frustrated by.
Few answers.
Lots of questions.
An endless limbo (which, by the way, used to be a funeral dance - fun fact of the day)

Which really means I really just need to sit back and get a healthy dose of perspective.

I listened to a sermon from Bethel this morning (instead of going on my usual walk/run, because it was pouring), talking about the perspective achieved by being seated in heavenly realms.  Seeing life from the point of view of eternity.

I'll admit. That's hard for me.

I'm a live in the moment person.
Which isn't to say that I don't get in my head - I can, and I do.
I just function better when I'm engaged in the moment

But when you're engrossed in the moment, it's real easy to hone in on the little things
Like weight
And jobs
And emails
And deadlines

And miss the big picture:
Life, friends, family, community, eternity

Which isn't to say that the little things don't matter
Because they're definitely important too.

But in the strife for perfection in the little things
Let us not lose sight of what matters most

'Til tomorrow,

Question of the Day: Does any of this matter?
Challenge of the Day: Take a step back and try to see the big picture
