It's just a glass...

Lately, I've been very "half empty" on just about everything. There are so many things racing through my mind that I'm beginning to lose myself in doubt and worrying. I struggle to find the silver lining in all my situations. Because of my pessimistic attitude and how I'm going through and "emotional rehab" to change it around, I'm going to list out all my stormy clouds and try to see the rainbows within it. This blog isn't for anyone but myself.

The Clouds:
-I'm obsessed with how well I'm going to do at school this year. Five college classes, plus an incredibly tough military history class will do that to you :(

-I'm always, always, always tired and feel like I'm running out of time :(

-Constant joint pain from arthritis :(

The Rainbows:
-These classes will be a good taste of what college is, plus, if you score well enough on all the tests, they WILL count for college credit :)

-You're tired because of seminary, which we all know you love. Plus, your boss is kind enough to let you work on just Fridays so you're able to do your homework and study for the 5 tests you've got in the next two days :)

-Be grateful that you've now gotten a taste of what thousands of people go through daily, including your own mother :)

This weekend is exactly what I need. Four day weekends are the best, especially when my days are filled with being with my best friends, along with a day trip to Nauvoo, for my very first time. I think this weekend will help me get that 'boost' I've been needing....

WOW! You have a lot on your plate. Luckily, if anyone can handle it all, I believe you are the girl for the job.

You are so mature and I'm impressed by your ability to get it all out and find the positive within the cloudy.

Rock on woman!

A trip to Nauvoo is something I've always wanted to take. Hope it was everything you were hoping for!
