What do you do when life doesn’t go the way that you have planned? What do you do to gather yourself up? What do you do when you only have two questions, but literature laws demand that you should write three?
December was a hard month. The plan was finish my first semester well, then order pizza and stakeout at the cinema. Lol! Yes, I was planning on watching Pitch Perfect 3 at the cinema… And Jumanji… And The Greatest Showman… And Ferdinand… I was even going to throw in a Kiyindi because why nont? Probably would have become broke in the process.
Life had other plans, and as I headed into my final week of the semester – it took physical effort to focus and finish well. I might have cracked and fumbled with the ball for a second, but we made it through with a bang.
My mind wanders to what might be going on under the surface for those around me. School/Work/Life doesn’t stop because your are having personal challenges, instead you discover a new way that you can stretch without breaking.
The challenge with facing these pieces of December, is the absurd sleeping patterns that are trying to reign this January. I love my sleep and will try to jealously guard it however, as it type this, it’s 4am and not a wink or yawn.
Instead of lying in bed and bargaining with God on the merits of sleep, why not get up and dust the cobwebs off this blog. Perhaps this – the act of blogging, will act as a confessional and give my mind the release often associated with sharing a burden.
Yes, you read right, I’m trying to trick my brain. I have a new appreciation for the under currents of resilience and the difference that proximity of family makes.
At last… A yawn! Success!! See you all on the other side
Instead of our normal Calvin & Hobbes, we are mixing it up with one of my favorite scenes from One Piece.
