Journal Fodder 365 - Prompt #24
The prompt for this week is inner connections. How can we connect with others if we don't connect with ourselves? How do you connect with yourself in a world full of distractions?
For me this has to start with connecting with God. If I don't connect with the one who made me, how can I know who I am and who I was made to be?
I make sure to have a time of quiet every morning where I can read, reflect, pray, and learn. I need to know how I react to things, how I can put myself in another's shoes, where I need to change and grow.
Inner connections are very important to me especially with my introverted temperament. I spend a lot of time in contemplation, just working things out in my mind and processing new information, fitting new things in with previous experiences. If I don't understand myself and where I fit, I feel confused and uncomfortable.
When I am comfortable with who I am, when I understand myself, I can bring everything that I am to a situation and serve in my best capacity.
