the shalom series

i don't believe in new years resolutions.
i'm not going to say i've never made one, or tried to keep one,
but i just don't believe that they work.

what i do believe in, however, is introspection. and age giving way to insight.
so for this year, and every year afterwards, my goal is shalom.

shalom: peace.
"it is well, it is well, with my soul."

have you ever noticed that you rediscover yourself in small ways when you are alone? sometimes alone time is so rare that it's easy to forget the impossible to express feelings and deep set details that lay within you. this world can be so overwhelming, relationships and getting by can be so all-consuming, that sometimes i absolutely forget to stop and think.

when i drove back to school for the last time on sunday, i was amazed by how everything flowed into me.
i love everything i have, but sometimes it is so nourishing to reflect on it alone.

my words and my thoughts are my soul. i hope i never forget that.

my goal is to focus on the things that nourish my soul, and in turn, give light to those around me.
