Four cups of coffee. Three loads of laundry. Two laptops to work off of. 1/3 of one paper completed. This is what my day has looked like and it is not even 4:00. Being an adult is not for the faint of heart y’all. Neither is working in corporate America. Neither is graduate school. As easy as it can be to feel overwhelmed with everything that needs to be taken care of in one short day, it’s easier to be thankful that I have been blessed with so many things that need to be taken care of. Okay, maybe not easier per say, but it’s easier for my heart to realign with Jesus’ than for my mind to be all over the place, filled with stress and lacking a sense of balance. Whatever your schedule looks like today, know that messy buns are always acceptable, coffee is your bff, and Jesus is walking with you through this day. He will calm your nerves. He will lead you if you let Him. He knows that you can finish the race, otherwise He wouldn’t have made you run it. Keep on keeping on sweet friends.
