Looooong time no see! The last month or so of my semester was pretty rough. It involved A LOT of studying, a good bit of stressing, and a trip to the emergency room with kidney stones.
Needless to say, I’m happy for a break.
I’m currently back home in Chicago (for two and a half weeks!!) and I am so thankful for a rest. Well, rest-ish. It seems like I have been running all over the place since getting back home. It’s been wonderful to see all the people who I have missed so much, but I am le tired.
Anyway, today (Merry Christmas, btw) it really started to sink in how badly I need rest. Consistent rest. Rest in my day-to-day life. And not just fall int0 bed at midnight rest, real rest. Rest for my body and my soul.
I have been doing the #shereadstruth advent study, and it has been some much needed refreshment for my heart. As the new semester approaches, I want to start it right – keeping myself on pace in school so it’s not a mad rush at the end of the semester and taking time each day to really take care of my heart.
This always turns out to be a more daunting task than I anticipate, but without making an effort, I am just setting myself up for a world of stress and anxiety later.
So for the rest of the break, I am hoping to rest, really rest, so that as the new semester begins I will be prepared emotionally.
I also want to get back into blogging. It’s been so long I barely know where to start, but I’ll take it one post at a time and see how it goes.
I hope you had a Merry Christmas, Internet and a restful holiday season
