Glass Jar

I am a glass jar.  What ever I am consumed with people will be able to see it.

Julia Nash wrote a great honest post on balance that stopped me in my tracks.  Her post really made me pause and reflect on how I am conducting myself. Do I have balance? Am I allowing my life to be consumed by the training and the transformation? Am I allowing it to dampen my pursuit of God? Am I annoying or negatively affecting those around me?

I have 5 life strivings (goals).  Every Friday a pop up on my computer is scheduled to remind me of these goals.  But maybe I need to take every day at a time.  Each day asking, am I doing these things?  Where is my focus today?

My goals:

  • To know God
  • To keep myself in optimum shape.
  • To continue to meet life’s challenges with excitement and perseverance.
  • To always give thanks, acknowledging Job 2:12
  • To support, encourage and fiercely love my husband

Competing is just something I am doing to make myself a better person (and to have fun:) ) – strengthening my mind to persevere, sculpting my body into a strong machine – but it is not life.  When people look at me, will they merely see one dimension? The fitness dimension?
