I can't believe how much I actually wrote at the beginning of last summer. I also can't believe that I'm writing again right now. HaHa. But I've told myself that from now on if I ever choose to write randomly again (like today), I'm not going to start with some kind of dumb intro like "Its been so long since I've written," or "Wow I haven't written in a year!" I'm just going to write.
It was refreshing to go back and read how the beginning of my summer started last year. Much different, but also the same in many ways. Ironically, I'm now suffering from EXACTLY how I felt in that last post about Andy. We just got back from a cruise, which was amazing, and in preparation for it I saw him FIVE weekends in a row. Which is insane. So now that I'm not sure when I'll see him again, I'm missing him more than ever and I'm in a major rut.
Every one of my friends[at home] has either started work already or is out of town. And then my family is at work and school all day, so I'm left at home doing NOTHING. This is not good for me in many ways, but its basically making me sit around and mope that I'm bored and I need to STOP.
I should be happy that I have some time to relax and do nothing before the busy-ness of work starts up again. I have thought about several different blog topics that I could write about to help change my mood: what I'm thankful for, a summer bucket list, what I've been up to... but while I was considering what to write I came across this blog post and it was PERFECT for me to hear. I've been feeling in a rut in a lot of different ways lately (not just what I've talked about here). So it was good to be reminded that there are good things coming and I need to just be patient. God has a plan, and right now his plan is for me to relax rather than be bored. So maybe I'll go lay out by the pool now. Even if it is by myself, I should take it as an opportunity.
Until next time,
[whenever that may be]
