Hey guys! ❤ I hope that you’re having a beautiful week 🙂 There have been many different post ideas on my heart recently, so I’ve been slowly narrowing them down to which ones should be written when. For today, I’d love to share a bit of a more personal post (which I do most of the time anyway, haha), where I’ll be sharing some thoughts I’ve been having when it comes to how and where I spend my time and energy. ❤ I hope you enjoy!
Over the past year or so, I have been doing a lot of soul-searching. With my eighteenth birthday less than a month away (which I think is crazy!), I’ve been thinking and praying about my future so much that it has consumed me at times.
I’ve attempted to think so far ahead that I’ve eventually stress myself out beyond repair … which is why I’m desiring to come up with better ways to do this.
I have less than one semester left of my senior year, and it is going really well. Staying determined to get that schoolwork done fills my weekday mornings and afternoons, which still leaves many hours that I wish to fill participating in hobbies and activities that matter.
And what about this summer? With my graduation just around the corner, I don’t want to get whirled into a pattern of un-productivity … so I have been organizing my priorities and picking them carefully.
There are few things I love more than a productive day! Whether I help out with taking care of my family, make progress on projects that will take a long time to actually complete, or continue pursuing a hobby that makes me really happy, I love dedicating time to getting things done, in many shapes and forms.
Today, I am praying over the main passions I have had for a very long time – ones that I know I’ll pursue in the years to come. Among them are writing, linguistics, organization, and laughter. (Yes, it’s honestly a hobby of mine! I love making others laugh.) Sometimes, I even wonder if exploration is a passion of mine, too, for my limitless interest in the world around me, both in learning new things and traveling to new places, is something that truly adds to my life.
I don’t know much about what my future holds at the moment … but I did realize something last night. Not only am I close friends with the One Who holds my future, but I’m also blessed to be able to live in and completely focus on the present.
If I was daily consumed by what is to come, it would be impossible for me to flourish here now. ❤
Throughout 2018, it would bless me if you’d like to follow along on my journey into adulthood! I’m taking everything in stride, praying over situations I need answers to, and doing my best to always put my trust in my Heavenly Father, Who holds my life in His loving hands. ❤ Thanks for reading!
What are YOU focusing on this year?
