@kindlerofjoy

Happy Friday my friends!

This week as I launched my new Instagram account, @kindlerofjoy, which I started way back in March but was too anxious to go “public”, I was reminded about my true goal of this adventure.
This entire adventure is completely and utterly outside of my comfort zone. Putting myself out there like this, vulnerable and sometimes raw, opening myself up to scrutiny.

Ooooo, is it hard.

Someone asked me recently what it is that I am truly afraid of. I wasn’t quite sure. But after much thought, weeks even, I think the true answer is failure.

I still find myself a little girl at times. I don’t want to be laughed at, I don’t want to appear silly. I want to succeed.

But what is success? How do we measure that? What is your true goal of this adventure into the kindling of joy across the world-wide-web?

I think I lost sight of the true goal for awhile. I was focusing on the wrong things. But my path has cleared once again and I truly can see what it is that I want.

I want to see Christ daily. I want to focus on the beauty of this world. I want to see Christ in my children, my husband and my neighbor. I want to be the bee! And I want to sing the praises of the His glorious Resurrection all the days of my life.

Blog post on March 20, 2018 is about St. Paisios.

I’ve spent far too much of my life in the opposite state of being, in being the fly who is attracted to the dirt/trash of life. I want not another day of this way of being.

Sharing this with the world around is one way I can constantly remind myself of my goal. I am doing this because I feel strongly about wanting to live a life in the Joy of the Resurrection.

And no matter what, if my goal is purely that, I cannot fail!

So onward I go, expanding my reach and sharing with the world out there.

“This is the day of Resurrection, let us be illumined, Oh people! Pascha, the Pascha of the Lord. For from death to life, and from earth to heaven, has Christ our God led us, as we sing the song of victory!”  Christ is Risen!
