I've been thinking about this post for a while. I've had a few different thoughts since then, too.
I thought, before, about how much I wanted to be religious - but then I got to thinking why.
I want to be joyful.
I want to believe that this world is good, and is for good.
I want to be able to trust my worries to someone else, and just get on with it all.
I want to be loving.
I want to be that person who smiles.
I want to be the person whose door is always open.
I want to feel motivated.
I don't actually need to be religious to be many of those things. So, in the spirit of solution-oriented therapy, how about just living as if it were so?
Perhaps the others will come with it.
