Once "This" Ends, I'lI Be Able to Relax!
Goodness. Life is busy.
I think - well, actually, I know - that life never stops being busy; as soon as one thing ends, another activity, commitment, class, or To-Do slips into that now nice-and-empty-space in your calendar and takes its place. You'd think after directing 4 plays, participating in Shakespeare + Poetry competitions, studying for ACTs and SATs, as well as being a homeschool girl, that I'd have figured that out by now.
But no...each busy season finds me trotting through a jam-packed week, thinking to myself as I dash from school at home to rehearsals to church to the gym, "Oh, I can't wait until this-and-this or such-and-such ends...it'll be so nice...I'll be able to RELAX!"
I must make God chuckle. ;)
There's always something, and this particular season (now well after the holidays and into the new year) is no different. Of course, many of the new things keeping me busy are wonderful and certainly blessings. However, things are quite interestingly crazy 'round here.
But such is Life. It's a "quick successions of busy nothings," as Jane Austen, one of my favorite authors, says. I have some thoughts on my mind amidst this business and flurry of life that I hope to share in the next few weeks... I'm seeking calm, peace, and order, so I hope to be doing some pondering and resting this week.
That being said, I'm off to drift into the world of sleep and dreams. One needs quite a bit of the former when one's in college!
What's the busiest part of your life right now? Church, school, work? How do you quiet your soul and relax? Coffeeshops, reading, and chocolate usually soothe + nourish my soul.
