Good times

Hey guys, I'm honestly pretty dissappointed with my lack of posting lately. Its mostly due to my lack of things I feel are interesting to write about.

However, all self pity aside, I have come to an awesome and life changing revelation / realisation.

For a long time I have struggled to find the balance between working incredibly hard (in whatever area of life) while still enjoying life and having an awesome time.

Sometimes I am afraid that my desire to enjoy and love life will overbear the importance for top success and achievement in things. I am not sure if there are many people who feel the same, and although I am still learning to find the balance / or working out how both work together, but I am beginning to understand the importance of loving life.

The name "Rhys" literally means "lover of life" which I have found gives me an even greater incentive to love the life that God has given me.

After having an awesome preacher from the deep south of Invercargill both stay and preach in our church last week, I was blown away at his ability to both exercise and work in authoritative, powerful leadership while still being relaxed and loving all that life is meant to be in God.

I know that this kind of life is the kind of life that God wants all of us to be living (John 10:10) but it does take time (for some of us slower ones) to learn and understand well.

Life is meant to be fun and loved - to quote a smart guy:

"Life is an adventure to be lived, not a problem to be solved"

Go out there and love it :)
