My Story

As a part of the Spiritual Growth journey that I am on I am being asked to write my narrative.  I’m writing this post because I’m not really looking forward to writing out my story.

I’m blessed to have grown up in a family where I felt loved and supported.  I’m blessed to have a brother and sister who I get a long with and enjoy hanging out with.  I love my wife and kids.  I’ve been blessed to go to college and get an education.  I’m blessed to have a job where I am working in the field that I studied.

My pains and struggles are a blessing as well.  I’m blessed to have felt like a dork in high school.   I was blessed to never have a girlfriend throughout Jr. High and High School.  I was blessed to have some really horrible jobs and really horrible bosses.  I was blessed to dislocate my shoulder in football practice.  I was blessed to be in a drama team.  I was blessed to be in a band.

I am looking at my narrative.  With the benefit of hindsight I really do feel like I have been blessed tremendously.  My gratitude is increasing the more I think about the things that were very difficult for me.  I think the biggest deal for me is choosing to be greatful that those things are behind me.  Before me I can expect more blessings as well as more painful instances.  But I know that both can be used for blessing.

Just thinking  . . .
