creating beauty

Just as there is an ultimate Creator, I too have my own part to pay in Creation.  The choices I make everyday help to create the beauty and joy in my life.

I'm thankful for the privilege.

How does one trust their heart, really?  Your heart can take you down smooth roads and bumpy roads that end in cul-de-sacs of heartache.  I always thought that even if your heart took you down a difficult path, there would always be some deep purpose or lesson to come out of it.

Yet I've taken such a path recently.  In the immediate, I don't see a deeper purpose in the bad decision I made-- just brokenness that needs fixing.  Does a difficult road always need purpose?  I always thought it did.  I guess I don't think so anymore.  And if nothing else, I've become a richer person for my experiences.

After all when you examine the meaning of life, sometimes there's deep purpose and sometimes there's meaninglessness and pointlessness.  That doesn't make it good or bad.  It's all part of the experience.

To answer my question: How does one trust their heart?  We don't really have a choice.  If you can't trust your north star, your compass will always be broken.  We just have to... no matter where it takes us.
