I think Wednesdays are going to be my favorite this semester, because I don't have class until 12 and I am a happy camper.
But I haven't been such a happy camper recently. The realization that I'm back in school is hitting me, and the stress is setting in already. Although I love my apartment and roommates, it's different from what I expected and if it's one thing I hate, it's change. So it's taking me a little bit longer to get used to being back on campus, and everything being so different. I feel different. In some ways, I am different, and it's scary. But if it's one thing that helps me calm down, that reminds me to breathe, it's this quote I found on Pinterest.
Sure, there are going to be times that are hard, there are going to be struggles, there are going to be times that I want to lock myself in a room and cry for days, but I'm putting all of my trust in God. Whatever's happening in my life is meant to be happening. Every choice, every mistake, every bad decision I make are all meant to teach me a lesson, to help me grow, and to ensure I don't do them again. So I need to stop worrying about them. I need to stop worrying about everything.
As long as I work hard, pray as often as I can, think positively and be happy, then success will follow. I trust in God, and he will provide. The bible says so itself.. "When I am afraid, I put my trust in you." - Psalm 56:3. So, it's about time I listen to it. I need to stop worrying about everything and just know that it'll finally work out in the end for me. If it's not okay, then God still has plans for me - just in his own time.
I apologize for the Bible lesson - it's just that when I stumbled across this on Pinterest, it summed up everything I had been feeling over the past couple weeks and calmed it instantly. It eased the anxiety that had been weighing heavily on me, and it reminded me that there is someone to rely on, there is someone who will never fail me.
Hope you enjoyed the mid-week pick-me-up.. I know I surely needed it!
I'm apologizing in advance for the slow posts over the next couple months. School is and will always be my first priority, and as much as I love blogging, I don't think I'll be able to maintain posting every single day - I mean, I've been here a week and I've already been slacking! So expect to see me three to four times a week, and definitely every Wednesday and Friday for my regular posts!
Do you ever go through periods of worrying? What helps ease your worry?
