James - thinky thoughts

Just Kicking Myself !!!!!!

I need to remember that sadness is part of life - when I struggle with sad emotions, notice empty spaces in my heart ... then I should be positive ... yes, in noticing the emptiness, I'm reminding myself that I am a complex person.  There may be things I want .... but in being aware of those, I know that nothing is truly missing from me. 

For years I wandered through life in my own little bubble. 

Thanks to LJ (and a couple of RL people), I now have friends and am aware of so much more ... yet that has caused me one or two personal heartaches.  However, I'm out of my bubble - hard at times, but in doing so I now know that there is nothing actually missing from the inner me.

Sadness is part of life - and for a part, it means you can enjoy joy more.

As I read this morning in Isaiah 25 -

God will wipe away all your tears.

It doesn't say that you won't have tears, but that you will be comforted.

So - I most focus on those positves ... and remember that I'm not missing anything ... I have so, so much to be thankful for.

2011 - Day 12

I've just walked to my nearest post office, and although it's now stopped raining (well, just about), it is a very murky day here in North Cornwall ... normally this picture would just show The Atlantic between the trees, as that's the way I'm facing ... just thought you would like to see!
