That’s right folks….I’m attempting to come out of the bitter barn and come play in the hay! It has been quite a whirlwind of a few weeks here. Lots of learning, lots of challenges, lots of growth, lots of laughter, lots of loving, etc. There are days I feel like I have it more together than others. There are moments I feel like I have it more together than others. I’ve come to determine a big reason I feel so confused lately is based on the fact I have not taken ANY time to myself. I’m talking zero. Now we all know I love people. LOVE ’em! However, if I don’t take time to get filled up–I just get exhausted pouring out. Much easier said than done though at this point in my life. I live in a house where I love all the girls, I go to school where I’m surrounded by people I want to know better, I travel most weekends to visit people I love, and I am still trying to maintain most of my friendships via the phone, email, and snail mail–something I’m not doing well lately.
I think I’m mostly frustrated with how my jobless life looks. I had big ambitions of my time being filled by gardening, trips to the beach, reading books, exercising, eating healthy and lounging. Well, that’s hardly been the case. So–I just need to accept that, be grateful for the time I do have, and do a better job at making a plan of how I believe God wants me to be spending this time here and now.
Any thoughts or words of encouragement?
