Caution: This post is everywhere and that’s because my head is everywhere tonight. 🙂
School’s out, essays submitted, snow is falling, winter is in mid-bloom. I have had a strangely good week. Strange because I actually enjoyed writing my essays, I had one of those ‘I set fiiirrreee to the laptop’ days but we made it out on top (besides it snowed the entire Saturday so I didn’t miss much). Honestly, I thought after undergrad I would have a job that pays me an obscene amount of money, and I would actually beg and plead with my employers to reduce my salary but they would strongly reject my plea. Oh well, one can never have enough education.
Anyhow, today I treated myself to some little shopping. My sister and I are going through this rings phase, you know that whole Phoebe Buffay phase? I picked out a few rings, and a magazine (don’t you just love magazines and white towels?) and mentally planned my soak. I haven’t had a soak in the longest time, so I really went all out tonight. I scrubbed the tub, mixed deep sleep comforting milk bath with strawberry and jumbo moringer shower gel from body shop, and I let the water run as I read my magazine (bliss…). I am in for some good sleep tonight…woooo!
In other great news, my family is spending Christmas in *drum roll* DISNEY WORLD!!! OML…Right now, there’s no difference between my five year old sister and I, except that she packed ALL her stuff two weeks back. No point of return! I have never been to Disney world and I could use some sunshine right now. Honestly, if it were to miraculously snow in Orlando I would be deeply offended, nevertheless, I would be that one person in short shorts.
What’s been on my mind? Well…now that you ask, when people who we love are going through a “hard time” or are emotionally hurting. As much as we may have solutions to their problems, you have to be mindful not to get entangled in their problems. Even the actions of a well meaning person can be wrongfully interpreted. Sometimes we have to step back after offering our help and let people find solutions designed to suit their own problems. Unless our help is asked for, we shouldn’t push our advice down someone’s throat just SHOW UP (thanks Mellie…hashtag scandal) and be present when they need you to be.
Guys, 2013 has been a great year! Why? Because you and I are ALIVE. We have grown, we have hurt, we have loved, we have lost, we have gained, we have been at the top of the mountain and beneath it. I am so grateful for the lessons learnt and memories created. My prayer for each one of you is 2014 will be your year of success, your year of joy, and of great opportunities. I pray that you will have tears of joy and not of pain. I pray that you understand that when one door shuts, another one will be opened. I pray that you will encounter the supernatural in your natural, I pray for extraordinary days, and I pray that you will have many breakthroughs.
Merry Christmas and happy holiday 🙂 see you in 2014 friends.
