There is this word-of-the-day-type thing that gets sent to my cell phone each day. Most of the time the words are very large and don’t mean anything particularly useful or usable to me, so I erase them immediately. The one I received yesterday made me stop and think though:
interregnum: n. the interval between two reigns
As far as life goes, I am currently feeling extremely burnt out. That is why this word seemed to mean something more to me. I know that I am between “things,” but I do not know what exactly those things are yet. I wish school would be over and that I did not have to stay an extra (bonus) semester and that things were just…different. But this is how they are. I made the choices that led me here. I need to trust that I will be led into the next “reign” in my life and not worry about it. I just need to make it through each day.
I have been working through World Vision Act:s’ Lent study and they focus a lot on how blessed we are, with the whole living -in-America thing. A lot of the world lives in poverty. There are a lot of slaves. Human slaves. In 2011. This fact should break the hearts of people in our country, but it gets ignored.
A lot of the world doesn’t wake up and drink a 2-litre of mountain dew and eat a box of Tastykake mini donuts for breakfast (actually, I might be the only one in the world who does that).
Anyway, I think I am just saying that I have a lot. Even when I think I don’t. And even when I’m struggling to get through each month because I’m stranded in an apartment that I didn’t ever plan to be in (that I was blessed to even get).
It comes down to these choices that I make. “You are the only one who is looking out for you” – I have been told that this is reality, but it is incredibly depressing to think about life that way. Moving onward towards whatever this next phase of my life might be, I know that I have forgiveness for my previous strife – Matthew 6:14-15. I am a work in progress.
Pictures! These are from winter session and I never posted them anywhere yay:
Also, I turn 22 this week. That will be weird.
Also also, I have watched four-and-a-half seasons of Dr. Who since January. It is amazing. Excited for the new season soon yay ^.^
