Born and raised in West Texas, I grew up longing for an adventure in the great wide somewhere. That quest for fun took me to film school at the University of Texas at Austin, a job at a megachurch in San Antonio, seminary in Southern California, and on many many trips to Disneyland. I’m a husband to Christopher, dad to Noah, church planter @ Sacred Place Disney Vacation Specialist @ Mouseways, and storyteller. Adventure is out there and here’s my story!
So yesterday I talked about decompressing and what it looks like for me as well as how it’s an integral part of rest. If decompressing is largely focused on giving your brain a break on the amount of information it receives, recharging is filling up your emotional gas tank. It’s doing something that gives you energy again.
So this quarter has been tough. Not because Greek is exceptionally hard. Doing it as an intensive is just a bit demanding. Having one’s brain so thoroughly focused on one thing all the time drains you. As a result, you need to do to things to keep yourself happy and avoid insanity: decompress and recharge. I’m realizing these two are very different things.
Catalyst West was awesome. This week was actually pretty awesome as a whole minus last night’s getting rear ended on the 5 Freeway. I’ve been collecting ideas for blog posts for about a week now. Had a moment of inspiration that spurred the whole thing. So, starting Monday morning, you should see regular posts from me.
