Feeling Good

It’s a new dawn

It’s a new day

It’s a new life

For me

And I’m feeling good

Sigh..how can you not love that song? After being so crazy angry yesterday I knew exactly what I needed to start my day off right today. I needed to see sunrise on the beach and have a conversation with God. I woke up a little too late to walk to the beach to catch sunrise so I drove there instead. As I was driving the negativity started to creep in. It was super cloudy and I could tell there was no way I was going to see the sun. You can tell in the first pic how blah it looked. I tried to focus on the positive things like the huge octopus looking thing that was built by someone on the beach. After a few seconds of admiring that beauty I started my walk and talk. My relationship with God is different than most I’m sure. I don’t talk to him daily or anywhere close to what I should. I don’t attend church or read my bible daily. I try my best to carry as much as I can for as long as I can. I know it’s crazy and totally untrue but I don’t want to burden God with my small problems when there are so many bigger things happening in the world. I try to thank him throughout the day but I keep it brief hoping that I’m not taking up too much of his time. If there is a problem I suck it up and tell myself that God isn’t going to give me more than I can handle. When I have moments like yesterday I know I have waited too long to talk to him. Negativity breeds negativity. That is obvious based on my snowball yesterday. I really just wanted to know that he was still there and I wasn’t alone. If he could show me the sun then that would just be a bonus. As you can see by the pics the clouds shifted and the sun appeared. There are not words to describe how that felt. It’s the simple things, the small nuggets that people take for granted that I hold on to. Those little moments keep me going. I realized more today than ever that I constantly neglect myself. I feel so much better when I’m eating the right foods, exercising and walking with God. My priorites have been way off track. It’s not about being selfish. It’s about taking care of yourself and being the best you for your friends, family and co-workers. It’s way past time to get going in the right direction.
