Daydreams :: Sleepwalk

31 Days is over. My husband resigned. I attended The Relevant Conference. I had my first giveaway. I love my job and helped with this for the first time. I did this for 6 weeks.

I’m taking deep breaths now. I’ve told my close friends and family that during the month of October I felt like I had a plastic bubble over my head. I wasn’t letting anything else get in.

My eyes were opened on October 27. The day I was traveling to Pennsylvania with Nester to the conference. In the book “Jesus Calling” one paragraph stuck out.

Many people are so preoccupied with future plans and decisions that they fail to see choices they need to make today. Without any conscious awareness, they make their habitual responses. People who live this way find a dullness creeping into their lives. They sleepwalk through their days, following well-worn paths of routine. {October 27, pg. 314}.

My friend Kara also wrote about this day in her Caring Bridge journal. Her journey with breast cancer has taken on a whole new meaning to her day-to-day life.

I do not want to sleepwalk through my days. I want to notice what is going on around me and pay attention to the people around me. That may mean I write on here less, but that’s ok. That may mean that I don’t have time to watch a few of the shows on my DVR. That’s ok. Some of the amazing books that were given to me at Relevant may collect a little dust. That’s ok.

I want to notice the yellow leaf amidst a sea of gray.

  1. Oh, and it can get so grey when we put many days together of not seeing the yellow.

    Love this.

    • after i posted this, i had a thought {while i was in the shower – where most of my thoughts come from!} that it’s kind of ironic that yellow is one of my least favorite colors…i only notice the things that i want to notice.

    I love that you call it “Sleepwalk”. Loved reading your thoughts in October.
