So, on the way to work this morning my favorite radio talk show was talking about soul mates. I was curious, what do you all think about soul mates? Do you believe there is one person designed specifically for each person? Do you believe religion plays into it?
I am just curious as to the opinions of others about this topic.
So, I follow 90% fitblrs..I use tumblr as a source of motivation and a way to stay current on trends, tips, and facts about fitness. I however, primarily use my blog as a special space for me to reflect. I think I am going to add some fitness, stats, and progress information. I love reading about others health/ fitness journey but have never had the courage to tell my own. I think I will do that, why not?! The Tumblr community really is so wonderful.
There are times when we feel lost, like we are wondering around with no real purpose. I know I have felt like that several times throughout my life. There were times when I felt alone, when I felt that I wasn’t good enough, when I was envious of others, when I wasn’t satisfied with ME. I think we all struggle with those thoughts, I still struggle with them from time to time. It gives me such peace to know that God knew all the days of my life before they happened; he knew I would feel these feelings. He expected me and knew me before I was born. When I am faced with struggles and I feel life spiraling out of control I try to remember that our time on earth is as “transient as a shadow”. Compared to the eternity we were created for, everything else seems so petty.
“Your birth was no mistake or mishap, and your life is no fluke of nature. Your parents may not have planned you, but God did. He was not at all surprised by your birth. In fact, he expected it.”
― Rick Warren, The Purpose Driven Life: What on Earth Am I Here for?
Today I am feeling so very blessed. As I watch the news and it sinks in that at any moment everything could be taken away; not just material items but family and friends as well. You never know when your life can be completely turned upside down. It blows my mind that we are so barely alive; we are so fragile in this life. Hug your family, tell people you love them, be kind, and forgive those who upset you. In times of tragedy we are reminded that we should be practicing these things every day. We are part of something so much bigger than ourselves.
People who start out with you won’t finish with you. Nothing in this life last forever, what a blessing and a curse.
