It’s actually day four and I have been doing a crappy job completing and blogging about this life turn around project. I promise to do better.
That day I think, was a crucial day in the one month to live plan. What I forgot to mention was that Kerry and Chris Shook, the authors, are ministers. This book makes traditional religious suggestions. And I am far from traditional in any sense of the word. Back to the original point: day four is important because that is when you start relying on God. Basically, you aren’t supposed to go on this journey by yourself. Great for me because I have little to no self-discipline.
So for day four’s questions:
What is preventing me from leading a spiritual lifestyle?
I don’t go to church anymore. I used to be very active in my youth group back in high school. In essence, my friends there were my support group; they kept me going when I struggled spiritually and otherwise. When I went to college I abandoned everything I learned during my high school years. Five years ago I was in a completely different place than I am now.
Disappointments and frustrations?
I am so lazy when it comes to getting the things I need to get done for myself. Even reading this book, I haven’t taken it as seriously as I wanted. I get to work on time and put in 100% there and people I care about get there way no questions asked; but what about all the stuff I have wanted to do for years. Almost none of those things are done even though I have been “trying” for years. I hope that over the next month I can straighten up.
How am I doing with communication with God?
Bad. I forget to thank the Source that gave me life every day. I need to do better so I can live passionately and stop worrying about the little things that are holding me back.
