As I sit and enjoy the rainy Labor Day Weekend I’m stuck thinking about the things that I work on every day which provide meaning to my life.
A great exercise is to write out the things that expend your body, mind and soul.
In my younger years I was remiss because I believed the good things in life should come to me.
The work I needed would be later in my life.
My preconceived notions were misguided.
We must use our energy to live a fruitful life from the moment we land on this earth until our life journey ends.
A true labor of love!
Happy Labor Day!! Enjoy!!
|Kim’s Labors of Love|
|My Child||This morning he sat in my arms and told me he loved me so much. It’s all I have to say as the words make me feel content and fulfilled. At one time I resigned myself I may not be able to get pregnant. God handed me the best gift ever. I will work on loving and nurturing my child. It is the best labor of love!|
|Marriage||Often I find it difficult to stay on an even keel with my feelings. There are times I am so happy but other times kind of miserable. When you love someone it’s about living together as well as making it work. A marriage takes work in in conjunction with commitment from two willing partners. It intertwines emotion, love , passion, affection and companionship. It’s like a ship at sea. At times the waters are calm while other times there is turbulence and a lot of waves. In my husband I found a life partner and eternal love.|
|Relationships||People are important! A simple statement that reflects a basic ideal. In my youth I found I failed to commit to family or friends. I wanted them to be there for me but I lacked the same level of devotion. Work on being a better listener, supporter, contributor and friend. Put aside the me and start with the we!|
|Education||Wasting your mind is one of the worst things in life. Out of high school I attended college only to find it was not a true passion for me. It left me disillusioned. So I worked on a business degree. Began to write every day. Set goals for the future and allocate time to work on intellectual endeavors.|
|Health||You only have one life to live. A person has to put forth effort to stay and keep healthy. There are no guarantees in life. I have a lot of life to live but I need to change now!|
|Writing||All it takes is a pen and piece of paper for me to feel exhilarated. The words give my life meaning and create great joy.|
