Since I got home from Thanksgiving my life has been a whirlwind. I don't think I have ever been so busy in my entire life when it comes to school, work and church, but mostly school! This poor little blog of mine has been neglected. But no fear, with things finally calming down I am finally back :) I still have to blog about my Thanksgiving break, geeze! I tend not to handle stress very well and it is something I have been trying to work on. I think I did better this last time around, and I read this quote a couple weeks ago and it really stuck out to me. Sometimes I let stress be my excuse to not do something. I understand that every now and then we do just need a break. But how often do we just let responsibility overwhelm us?
I have found that I am very capable if I want to be. If I choose to do it. If I don't find an excuse and push through all of that stress that builds to do the things that I know will make me happy. The last several weeks I have been reminded that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me, cares about me and wants the best for me. I also have an amazing husband who supports me and comforts me. As well as amazing parents who are always looking out for me, that comfort me when I am down and celebrate my victories with me. Today I am just grateful, and so full of love.

  5. This is such a wonderful post. I totally agree with everything you say: sometimes it just so easy to get scared out of doing something just because of the idea of how stressful you think it's going to be - and then you find out that it wasn't that bad after all!

    Glad to see you're back :)

    Much love,
