Getting Still and Doing The Hard Stuff


Yesterday I excitedly received in the mail two great reads. One was Heather Lindsey’s “Dusty Crowns” which I devoured and had only one quibble with(she told women not to go natural for the sake of their marriages) and the other was Ann Voskamp’s 1,000 Gifts devotional(which is epic). I got to see some family that I haven’t seen in a really long time and that was a blast. But before all of that happened, a few other things happened. Sorry if this is jumbled.

I don’t know what happened but I decided that I was going to talk to someone about possibly getting an assistantship (since I don’t currently have that opportunity). I was asked how I was liking the program and I mentioned that I liked it but I would like it more if I had funding. Well, I was so proud of myself for asking about it. I then submitted the materials that I needed. Then I got an email about a summer internship in Washington,DC(basically my dream job). Then I got scared. On the one hand I am super excited and on the other hand I am nervous and I feel like why me. But the real question is why not me? So I am updating my resume and submitting the required documentation to find out what happens next. That way, I can always say that I tried. I talked to a few friends about it and they were very encouraging. I think that is probably a friend requirement.

Then I went home and couldn’t sleep. So I ironed clothes and watched a few movies. Well, apparently it was a good thing I ironed because this morning I got more than a few compliments on how put together I look. Well, I am wearing heels too. I usually just wear boots of all varieties(because I get cold easily and boots solve most problems in Texas).

Then I cracked open Ann’s book and it is all about gratitude and looking at all the ways that we are blessed. Its like a gratitude cornucopia. So I am going to take the time to pray and think about all the ways that I am blessed. I actually started last night before I went to bed(at some odd hour of the morning) which I think helped a lot.

Then I woke up and went for a run/walk and met up with some good friends. That is always nice. I ate some dark chocolate for breakfast(I’m blaming the doughnuts I ate yesterday). I hope to do better at lunch. Now to catch up on some reading. Thank you for taking the time to wade through my ramblings. I hope you have a great day.

What would you do, if you knew that the answer would be yes?
