Idealism: the practice of forming or pursuing ideals, especially unrealistically | it’s easy to get caught up in the ideals of this world. they’re engrained in our thoughts, actions, routines and our pursuit of them is so easy to overlook. but when you slow down and just sit with an almond milk latte in the middle of the chaos, you recognize broken patterns. and it’s hard. but it’s good. because those broken patterns don’t have to be our stories. instead we can choose to love and be loved; to love the bodies we’ve been given to house our lively spirits of joy and peace and courage.
in this season of my life, the layers are being peeled back and it’s scary but so necessary. i’m learning that the pursuit of unrealistic ideals is draining. but there’s a real kind of love that is big enough to overcome the world and my idealistic thoughts.
