Although many people find change uncomfortable, our culture wants us to embrace all things new. I’m not arguing the pros and cons because I see both sides. It can be positive to get behind a new initiative, such as eating vegetarian once a week (which John and I are now doing!), but it is also draining to constantly try out the latest political, spiritual, physical, etc. ideology.
While we’re seeking out the various aspects that we want to define us, we often miss the opportunity to be embraced. Notice the difference.
I find that it is often harder to be vulnerable, receive grace, let others love you for you. To slow down, enjoy moments of solitude, let the beauty of nature surround you. Be embraced.
