Good Times Are Intentional

It’s been a long time since I’ve have good hangs with a brother outside and in nature. Sunday afternoon, I got to hang out with my dear brother and friend, Tanner. He showed me some woods that ran by a set off railroad tracks and a small creek. It was very beautiful and refreshing. Earlier we bought a Kombucha for him, a cold brew for me and we made the trek.

We walked in the woods, leaving the sounds of passing traffic quickly behind us and checked out different deer trails, alongside the creek. After about thirty minutes, we turned around and walked on the train tracks back to the car. We talked about many things, past relationships, the curse of being nostalgic, our Red Wings and how the church is supposed to look regarding relationships.

After this adventure, we ended up at our pastors house for some Dominos, and church talks.

As we get older, the more difficult it is to spend quality time with one another but, if you’re intentional about it, it’s still very possible.

Good times are intentional and God is good.

Work In The Waiting

I have an older MacBook Pro, the 2011, 13-inch to be exact and while it is not the oldest to be still in use, I sure have used mine to it’s fullest.

I write a lot of music and on average, record up to 4 or 5 ideas a day. This is also aside from all my photography files, clogging up the memory. I have not backed this laptop up since the day I first got it and now, it’s starting to catch up.

Things are starting to slow down, programs aren’t opening up as fast as they used to and even Safari is a slow on the jolt. It truly does suck especially, you want to get something up rapidly and it wears on you slowly but surely. But, it’s also causing me to slow down. It’s causing me to think, “It’s just so much work in the waiting, is what I have to say really worth the time I’m going use waiting for this to boot up?”

Ok. I guess that was an intensely large introduction to get this point: sometimes, waiting seems like so much work and it doesn’t help that we live in a society so obsessed with “instant gratification”. It seems like so much work to just sit there and wait for something to happen. It can make it harder when it used to be fast but now, it’s slowed down. Learn to think of the waiting as a chance to evaluate everything you do and if it’s worth spending your time on or even, spending your time with.

Some of you reading this may not be happy with where you’re at in life, or where you’ve been living… Hang in there. The waiting is always for worth it in the end. The difference between the mundane and the adventure is whether or not you listen to that little voice telling to wait. Sometimes we act out, foolishly but more often than not, we tend to overthink.

Enjoy the wait for the good that comes after it is usually worth it.
