In case you haven’t noticed, and on the off chance that you care, I decided this weekend to delete my Facebook and will delete my other social networking accounts this week. I have realized that it is nearly impossible to center myself on my own personal journey, if I am constantly trying to stay abreast on the miniscule daily happenings of people that I don’t even really know. I think this will also encourage people to reach out and stay in more meaningful touch with me, which I crave. I will continue posting here, because as far as I can tell from my stats analyzer no one reads this blog except for our parents, grandparents, close family, and occasionally some of our exes (haha!).
I am hoping that this “housekeeping” helps me to focus on the really important things in my life. Things are really starting to get crazy this week. I have “matched” with a beautiful young woman who I will be sponsoring through Catholic conversion. I will also wrap up my mentor training this week. One week from Thursday a team of 3 other people and I will begin mentoring a group of 15-20 elementary aged students in the arts. We’ll be stationed at a long-term residential care facility whose mission is caring for youth with mental illness and complex behavioral issues. I am so so so excited to begin a living, breathing mission. I began training this weekend, and spent most of the initial presentation trying not to happy cry because the mission is so incredible and moving.
That’s our life! It is good!
