I am boring.
It’s painful to admit it, but it is true.
Just ask my wife.
Life defining moments have a habit of changing your perspective. You are often confronted by the harsh reality of your numerous foibles ~ (foible – a minor weakness or eccentricity in someone’s character.)
Many revelations have come to light through this process. One glaring deficiency I became aware of was how boring I had become. I had lack motivation in many areas in my life. I didn’t have a lot of hobbies. I live in the most beautiful province in Canada, and I hardly know it. We haven’t done too much as a family over the years. I have never been away with my wife on a vacation; just the two of us. Lately I have been consumed by wanting to learn, and experience new things. I have taken up an interest in digital story telling. I want to start capturing our story. I want to to film Jamie cooking different dishes. I want to capture just random moments with my kids. I want get out, and live more!
I feel like something has happened to me. I can’t explain it. I just know something is different with me.
I feel alive again for the first time in a long time. I just am very excited about some of the things that are going on in our lives, and I am excited to share them with you soon.
As a family, we are determined to start making ‘moments.’ We want to be much more intentional in how we spend our time, and begin to try new things.
We feel like we are on a roller coaster at times.
Right now we are making the climb to the top, and I am not ignorant that there is a few twists and turns, dips, and drops ahead of us. We are prepared for the future to the best of our ability, but we don’t rely on our ability – we rely on His!
So get out there, and try something new! Honestly! Get out! NOW! Right now and doing something. You will thank me later.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. Psalm 18:2
