Glide Through Thursdays Wk15: Check Yourself!
Glide Through Thursdays cover topics and tips that help you focus and meet your weekly goals with grace and ease.
On this here our holy week, Thursday represents the day Jesus and his disciples had the last supper. In this night we give thanks, rejoice, and set up for the journey ahead. And I speak of this time because it reflects the time we are in as part of our nation and society. However, I would like to take the meaning behind what is celebrated and make generalize it to more than just Christians and Catholics celebrating holy week. I mean no offense, but 90% of people "celebrating" the holiday do not even know what it means or why they celebrate it. Much has been lost to commercialism and habit other than true belief and appreciation for the ritual.
Nonetheless, the last supper is to represent this time when things are ending and another beginning, which is perfectly appropriate for Spring time as well. On this day, and whenever needed, take the time to reflect. What is this all for? What am I sacrificing? What am I gaining? How am I be true to myself and my loved ones? How am I being untrue? These are all checkpoints in our lives to give us the opportunity to straighten it out, clear the fog, and realign your path.
Check yourself before you reck yourself!
