Life and the Single Christian Girl…………
Today has been full, I love it though and I am grateful for all that I am able to do and experience.
I am home now reflecting on the day.
I went to work and I just love the diversity of my role as a Chaplain. I am in a classroom singing, then I am helping with reading groups and then I have a group of students for a program before lunch.
I want every student that I see to know that I believe in them, to know that they are valued and to know that they are able to achieve amazing things.
Yes they are!
At 1pm I had a meeting and it was great to catch up with everyone and just see how they are doing.
After that I went to my brother, sister in law and my nieces and nephew house.
I love seeing them, I am always greeted at the door like I have not seen them for ages. Then I am ushered be someone to see what they have been doing or what they have made or a new skill that they have learnt.
My youngest niece is 9 months old and see is crawling, standing up by holding onto something and discovering new sounds that she can make.
I was thinking about how the world looks through children’s eyes.
My niece who is crawling is having a go she doesn’t get concerned about who is watching or if she cannot do it properly. She just has a go. When babies are learning to do this and master this we all clap and get really excited for them.
I think that sometimes we can benefit ourselves by watching a child and learning from them. I think also by getting down to their level and understanding where they are.
I think that this can transfer into being creative. I know that there have been times when I have really been unsure about what I am doing with my art. I think that I am particularly hard on myself with my singing. I have judged myself harshly, I have compared myself with others and thought that I was not good enough.
I love singing and when I sing I feel free and happy.
My challenge for myself is to be creative and just do it.
Being creative is individual and it is your own concept.
Do more of what you love.
Create, create, create.
Will share more tomorrow.
Loves and Hugs
