Living your Best Life

At some point in your life, the time will come where you'll have a pause from the hustle and bustle of your 21st-century life and contemplate whether or not you're living the absolute best life you can live. This might sound very cliche but stick with me here.

Presence.

For the past few nights I've woke up after a couple hours of sleep deep in prayer. The first time this happened a few weeks ago I was frightened. Unsure of what was going on and this was something I've never experienced before. I've been startled awake before but nothing ever like this. I felt a great peace and after some time I fell back asleep. The past few nights have been different. I'd wake up in the middle of the rosary, The Magnificat or Psalm 95. I've also found that I was unable to stop even after I woke and would always finish the prayer that I was currently reciting. Soon after I'd fall back to sleep and not wake back up until the morning.

Transformation.

I've been thinking a lot about this notion of transformation as of late. I myself can look back 6 months ago and how I was for the better part of the last decade or so a brooding, rain cloud kind of person (on the outside at least). For me, now grace is the center of everything for me and from which I operate. From that comes peace and love and if that touches you in some way, shape or form then my thoughts on transformation are correct.
