My sorta sanctuary…maybe?


As I sit here listening to traffic outside our bedroom window, I just think about what Aprille has been talking about in regards to creating whitespace.

To the annoyance of M, I have created a sorta “sanctuary” for myself for the past few months since we have transitioned to post-Army life. Due to alot of personal issues, I have tried to minimize my time on social media (and failed), watching shows on Netflix thanks to the Roku player(unless I don’t feel good…which has been mostly this past weekend/week thanks to new meds), and even reading in general (and failed..I love to read).

However, I am trying so hard to pull away from focusing on other things while trying to stay tuned to what M says or doesn’t say at times.

Since my word for 2014 is focus, I am trying so hard to focus on God’s Word, my marriage, this still chaotic household, the abundance of pets running around the house…who love to try to trip us on the stairs!!

I know Aprille has made a great decision for her family and it has given me a lot of thought for the new year.

I know our family (M & I with our dog L) need our own sorta “whitespace” so we can stay focused on what is important. Although I don’t know what a dog stays focused on besides squirrels and lizards. 😀

I will be blogging once or twice a week, will be on social media but not as much as before…I will (God willing) start working soon so I won’t have much time being online; I will be starting grad school soon as well. I will definitely be using the schedule button though!!

As much as I love my “sanctuary” secluded from everyone (+ pets), I think my focus should be on helping myself but still being a part of everything going on with M and other issues. Maybe my “whitespace” can be while I walk around the neighborhood or something…I’ll have to work out the details but I guess I should stop creating a “sanctuary” in a room that has a great sunrise view… 😉
