Get it Together

My summer is almost over. With so much left to do. 

I love summer. I love just about everything summer has to offer and yet most days I feel as though I've failed to take advantage of it all.

Work is wonderful, but often gets in the way of all those things we want to be doing. Somewhere there has to be a happy medium of work and fun and enjoying all that each day has to offer.

Soon I'll be packing up from mom and dad's house to head back to school with Matt. Soon I'll be back into the routine of really long days, homework, papers, work... and time flying by. And I'm not ready for it. I'm not ready to let go of summer and all these plans I had, and all the plans that I know won't actually happen.

And then I look at Pinterest or others blogs or Facebook... and I wish I knew how to use my time more wisely, like everyone else seems to be doing. I wish I was out doing and exploring and finding new adventures to make lasting memories.

I want the time to go to the beach.
I want money to spend on a date day with my husband.
I want the obedience to exercise.
I want the space to create and make.
I want the diligence to work on my master's seminar paper.
I want the patience to enjoy each minute.
I want the contentment that is all so often fleeting.

So many 'wants'. So very human.

Get it together girl.

  1. We all want something we can't have...then we get it, and want something new. You're right, its SO very human.

    Do what you do best :) and take it a day at a time!
