Unfortunately, the good often accompanies the less than pleasant, and I have found myself in the midst of some sorrows as well.I have felt the pains of homesickness for both my family and friends. I have fought the insecurities that won't stop gnawing at me. I have learned that budgeting is way harder than it sounds like. I missed my sister's 20th birthday (Happy Birthday, Shelby!). And most recently, my heart broke over the news that my sweet kitty cat, Buttons, passed away this past weekend, and I couldn't be there to say good bye.
I love you, my sweet girl.
Growing up, I always had a feeling that being an adult would kind of suck. Not all the time. But still. I was never in a rush to grow up. But now that the time is here, I can only do my best with what I have and the resources and blessings that have been provided for me. I refuse to give up or deny my responsibilities. But seriously though, can I take a break? A nap time from life? Okay.
OH! So I almost forgot; today is Monday and I realize it's been FOREVER since I have made a goal, but that is going to change right now. For this week's edition of make-a-goal monday, I would like to pledge myself to find the bright side of everything that happens this week. My plan is not to live in denial, but there are perks to being an optimist. Here's to a glass-half-full kind of week.
I hope you are all well! Happy Monday.
...Oh. And P.S. Get excited.
