Trying to set smaller goals for myself while accomplishing bigger ones.

It's the last year for my undergrad, and although I am looking forward to finishing I am also feeling pressure to participate in various activities and events merely because it's the 'last year.' We'll see how that plays out, but I am aiming to be more intentional on how I spend my time, which is why it is important to be grateful.

-education. As much as we complain about, worry, and lose sleep over it, each paper we write, test we take, and forum post we respond to is getting us closer to the end.

-music. Recently discovered some great artists. Currently in choir for Handel's Messiah this Christmas and very much looking forward to it. Re-listening to ever classic artists.

-laughter. Whenever I've laughed lately, it's been because some quirk a loved one has set me off. Family or friends.  Or they've pointed out a quirk in myself. People are beautiful, and sometimes even more so when you love them.

-driving. Always an opportunity to relax, listen to music, podcasts, and have some time to myself where I am almost forced to think through and process my day, which ultimately is a good thing. Sometimes because people are constantly bombarded by business and deadlines. I covet time alone where I can think through my week.

-acceptance. This could take many forms. Whether from friends or programs, but I recently got accepted to a program that will jump-start my experience in acute care, which I am very thankful for. God certainly gives me unexpected surprises, that's for sure.

-work. As much as people complain about work at times, I am so grateful to be at a place in life where I am not dreading it but enjoying it. Yes it's a challenge, and people are in dark places, but it is a constant reminder of how much they need Christ's love, and one way I can show that love is by doing what I do the best I can.

-shared time. Recently shared a big chuck of time with a friend, and I don't regret any of it. I had not stopped in a while just to enjoy another person's company, and it felt truly wonderful.

No Place I'd Rather Be

Made like a clean bandit out of home base to my coz.
Sometimes home is where the heart's at.
Other times the heart is just where a certain someone is.

If you ever get a chance to read the C. S. Lewis' The Four Loves, do.
In the meantime, check out these unedited shots from the week.

This was good. Not over yet, but still so good.

Music for Your Monday // Everywhere

Can you hear me calling
Out your name
You know that I'm falling
And I don't know what to say


When you end up doing this once, it can never be undone. Sure, you can get up and keep going, but it doesn't erase the fact that somewhere back there you did fall. Here's to one more week before I'm let out for Nursing school 'spring break.'

Shout out to Fleetwood Mac. Every time.
