Monday’s Musings

Hey Cats!

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! It was rainy and cold here, so it didn’t really feel like Easter, but I did enjoy spending time with my family and celebrating the resurrection of Jesus! Also, I stayed in Tyler an extra day (today) because I have a dentist appointment this morning, and I really enjoyed getting to take an extra-long nap on Sunday afternoon instead of driving back to school. Speaking of, I only have FIVE weeks until graduation. Five. I’m happy, sad, excited, scared, and indifferent all at the same time. But mostly I just can’t believe that it’s gone by this fast!

Anyways, I was supposed to go see the new Cinderella movie with my sister over spring break, but that didn’t work out, so we went on Saturday. And It. Was. MAGICAL. It was even better than I thought it would be, and if you haven’t seen it, cancel all of your plans and go see it immediately. My sister and I basically acted like seven-year old girls throughout the entire movie, mesmerized by the magic, beauty, and fun of our favorite fairy tale. It was the best. Also, Cinderella had a wonderful little saying that was a recurring theme throughout the movie, which is today’s Monday’s Musing’s quote:

have courage quote

Have courage and be kind. Sometimes, it’s really hard to do both of those things, but they worked out pretty well for Cinderella, so it’s worth a shot. But seriously, I think this is a good thing to remember when you’re dealing with difficult people, or in a difficult situation. It’s not easy to be kind to the people who aren’t very kind to you, and doing so takes a little bit of courage. So the next time you find yourself fighting with the ugly stepsisters in your life (everyone has some), just remember to have courage and be kind.

That’s all for meow!

Monday’s Musings

Hey Cats!

Sorry for the abrupt end of posts last week! I really had every intention of keeping up the pace, and I even had posts planned for the rest of the week, but I had multiple meltdowns about school and I got really busy trying to figure out my new schedule, so unfortunately things did not go as planned. But when do they ever. I wish I could promise to keep posting regularly, but sometimes school and life gets in the way unexpectedly!

Last week was my first week back to school, and it was okay- not my favorite first week ever. I only have class on Tuesday and Thursday, but I work Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I actually really like that I don’t have to work and go to school on the same days! I’m not super excited about any of my classes, but that’s okay because there’s not very many of them. Also, I dropped a class on Thursday so now I only have two classes on campus, and the other two are online. Which some people would love, but I tend to forget about online classes, so we’ll see how this goes. Other than class, it was really nice to get back into a routine, and I can’t wait until next week when all of my activities start up again!

One thing I’m really horrible at is making important decisions. Actually, I usually know what the right decision is, but I have a really hard time implementing it. I’m always asking myself “but what if?” and second-guessing whether or not what I think is the right choice is actually the right choice. Like I said, I usually know what I should do, but I always have a hard time convincing myself, especially if it’s something that seems really permanent or final. I came across this quote recently, and I think it’s perfect for those times when you’re in a tough spot:

 

wisdom-courage-quote

 

Sometimes we need the wisdom, but most of the time we just need the courage. It doesn’t matter if you know what you should do if you’re still too afraid to do it.  Whether it’s dropping a class,  changing your major, or ending things with your not-boyfriend, sometimes you just need an extra push to actually do it. That can come from encouragement from your friends and family, through prayer and spending time in God’s word, or it can just hit you like a ton of bricks and you know you literally do not have a choice- it must be done. So the next time you find yourself in a situation where a tough choice is in front of you, I would encourage you to pray not only for wisdom, but for the courage to act on it.

That’s all for meow!
