These days I am about early bedtimes. I am about raisins in my oatmeal and English breakfast tea and being up with the sun (an arranged marriage, for sure). I am about The Message translation of the Gospels and not getting so worked up over things I cannot control. I am about budgets and attempts at financial independence. I am about birthday cards. I am about asparagus and quinoa and M&Ms. I am about blogs written by smart, strong, faithful women. I am about feminism mixed in with faith. I am about missing my family and friends in Portland. I am about Seattle’s parks and Queen Anne hill. I’m about Parenthood season 2 on Netflix. I’m about the longer days of the summer and hours of light after work. I’m soon to be about Wallingford. I really need to be about packing, but I can’t honestly say this is what I’m about, currently. I am about cutting myself off in the middle of rants that are only inside of my head, because they don’t solve anything and only stir up discontent in my heart. I am about learning not to despise my job so fiercely. I am about dreaming for future adventures and new chapters.
I want to be about generosity. I want to be about fewer restaurant trips and about meeting needs of people who are really hurting. I want to be about prayer for people who ask (and event those who don’t). I want to be about telling the truth even when it is hard and about listening well. I want to be about seeking those things in which I see and taste the Kingdom of God. I want to be less about social networks and more about real life. I want to be less about having cool stuff and more about making people feel loved and valuable.
Without being cheesy and trying to “invite readers in”—I sincerely wanted to ask: what are you about lately?
