In these days of anxiety, deadlines, and pressure, I can’t help but look forward to my ‘real life’ starting.
Except I have no idea what that entails. And then I wonder if when real life is here, will I just look forward to something else?
(Despite your opinions on his interview skills/life decisions, his music is still catchy)
Are there some of us that are just never satisfied? I don’t want to be in that group. It doesn’t seem like really living.
I get excited about new things all the time. But its a challenge for me to focus on the here and now. Especially this now. But I’d hate to get to my real life and wonder why I squandered my fake life. We have THE great news, the same promise of salvation and eternal life always! And the same strong support at all times. I shouldn’t get so wrapped up in these temporary moments to lose sight of the big picture.
So I try to take a moment and see friends, put aside my pressures and care for the people I love things I believe in, even when I feel in over my head. Like seeing family and helping with NFP teacher training and meeting Rebecca and The Man :) Things like that remind me of why we work hard in the first place.
But I still have to get through the now by doing this work. Now.
Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Lord, just help me tackle this batch of trouble right now.
