Well.... vacation is definitely over. But luckily, Steven and I only had a 2 day work week and it's now the weekend! Huzzah!!
I feel like our trip came at the perfect time. I was feeling so overwhelmed and stressed before we left. I literally was just over Jacksonville and all it had to offer (or lack there of). I was emotionally and physically drained. But the week away gave me clarity and some relaxation. I feel so much better for it. And the best part is that I was also ready to come home. I was ready to get back to work. Ready to see my girl friends. Ready to visit baby Keagan some more (my good friend Jen's 1 week old baby). Ready to sleep in my own bed.
Sometimes I think I just need a little boost and a quick reminder of how great life really can be. It's hard to see past the pitfalls and negativity at times. I feel like I've been dwelling too much on that lately. But now that I'm home again, I hope to not let it get me down. In fact, I even got a rejection letter (subject to be talked about later) and didn't get upset. I didn't throw it away either, but bookmarked it with a note to myself. It's a good reminder that sometimes what we see as rejection isn't, but in fact it is just God saying "Not now" or "I've got something better in mind for you".
