I spent a lot of time today taking about faith and life and other good, deep stuff. First with a cousin/life long friend and then with the boy. It was almost like one conversation flowed into the next one even though they happened hours apart – it was pretty cool.
I need those kinds of chats that let me explore where I am in my faith and how other people see theirs.
The boy summed up our anxiety issue well tonight. We were talking about horses and basketball and how they ground us and open our spiritual paths (horses for me, basketball and other sports for him). He said it’s true what they say – depression is worrying about the past, anxiety is worrying about the future. We need to find the things that help put our feet on the ground right now in the present moment and live in it.
Wise words from a 15 year old.
That’s what today did for me, and what I’m working at balancing into – finding the things that keep my feet on the ground and focusing on the present moment.
My tribe. It’s full of awesome and wise people. Happiness.
