When that primary, original relationship is healthy, everything else in our lives finds it’s proper place. Our relationships become healthier, our work doesn’t own us, our gifts and finances are employed not only for our good but for the good of the world, and we begin to experience an inner peace, strength and joy. All of this because of God’s love poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.
“And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” -Romans 5:5, NIV
This is the genesis of life to the full. This is living a beautiful life. When you’re in the midst of your own (re)making you may even find yourself feeling ‘This is what I was made for!’ You can tell you’re being put back together, made whole, through and through.
After those three days on the beach in the West of Ireland, I drove the four hours home wet, and a little lighter, but full. Not full of food, oh no, I had been existing off of cheap, uncooked, quick ‘snacks’ while on the beach. No, my stomach wasn’t full, but my heart and mind were. I felt as if I had new life. As I drove, my car windows were fogging up from a wet and smelly golden labrador in the back, but I could see this world and my place in it a little bit more clearly. I was resolute about the steps I would take to live the life God was beckoning me to live. I was free, and I knew it to the depths of my soul.
If you’d like to explore the beauty of a life well lived in more depth, download a copy of my ebook, “Discovering Your Rhythm of Life: Ancient Wisdom for Living the Good Life” which will soon be available in Soul Friend’s online store. 2 It’s a brief exposé of what we’ve begun to unpack here with original photography from the eleven years my family and I lived on the island of Ireland. Additionally, you can book a free initial session with me to gain more clarity about your life and take steps to living it more fully. Get in touch via the contact section on Soul Friend site. 3
I whole-heartedly believe that the best is yet to come!
