that is what i learned from this.
let me back up a little.
i found this blog through my google reader. i subscribe to a couple of blogs that fall under the umbrella of mormon mommy blogs but, as i'm far from a mormon mommy, it seemed a stretch even for me. but i like the way the blog poses thought-provoking questions and topics of relevance not only to mommyhood but living the gospel every day.
i was feeling pretty overwhelmed on monday, needing to grade a million papers that i had procrastinated and not understanding how it was all going to happen. that's when this blog post hit my reader and every line felt like it was directed to me.
i think we all have those revelatory moments, when something seems destined to speak right to us. sometimes it's a song that absolutely captures our feelings. sometimes it's a novel that contains a character that behaves just like us. in those moments, i think we sometimes attribute that connection to art, creativity, or some other abstract human idea.
i don't. i know exactly where it comes from.
it comes from a Heavenly Father who loves me.
when you're hit by a revelatory moment that is divine in origin, you don't ignore it. unless, you know, you just want cosmic pianos to drop on your head.
so i'm making my to-do lists differently now, and while i haven't made huge inroads into my "like to do" lists, i have gotten the things done that i needed to get done and i've noticed that my days are much brighter. and i'm realizing that i'm listening less to the voice that tells me that i'm not enough.
i don't know why the world is suddenly brighter and why i feel so much happier. it's like a physical reaction, genuinely.
but i like it. i'll keep it.
