Love One Another-Lent Day 6

Standard

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
John 13:34-35

This scripture was so perfect for today. It is good to have days where all you do is focus on others and how you can better help them. Today I had the opportunity to hear about humility. I also learned about humility. Then I had the opportunity to put humility into action. Each day is such a gift. Only when I stop to think about all that I have been through am I humbled. To be just in my current moment is humbling. 

I am so grateful for my friends and family. Having people in my life who not only care about me but who have patience with me to listen and guide me on my path. When I think I have a problem or concern, I really don’t. That is such a blessing. Knowing that other people can understand me even when I am still learning things about myself is a true gift. 

Today I did not completely focus on myself. I had many moments where I just listened and soaked in my surroundings. I love to learn new things. I know that I can learn the most when I am quiet. When I don’t have all of the answers no matter how much I think I can do, that means I can still grow. 

One funny thing that happened today, I had a piece of vegan cake(I was so excited about it) and I don’t know what happened but it just didn’t taste sweet. My brain could not compute. It looked like chocolate cake, it smelled like chocolate cake but it sure didn’t taste like it. I only ate half of it and ate the rest after a wonderful dinner. 

I also found out about some supplements that I need to take asap. My good friend and sheroe told me that I have to accept that I am getting older. I am working on it. So hopefully I have this stomach issue figured out soon.

I got some new conditioning cream and some oils for my hair(we shall see what happens). I think it made my hair bigger lol. I am really trying to go back to basics with my hair regimen. Currently it is shampoo, conditioner, and gel. Some days it is conditioner, gel, and mousse. So now it may be conditioner, conditioner cream, oil, and gel. 

As much as I don’t want the day to end, I have to try and get some rest for tomorrow. 

Namaste

TheSW30(13) The Last Person You Texted

Standard

Well, the last person that I texted was a new friend from school. She is smart,beautiful, and funny. This is the first semester that we have had classes together. She is so kind and understanding.
She was kind enough to give me an apple when I was starving. It was a truly grateful moment for me because I was like the guy who needs a Snickers and some other people were laughing at me. I had to just get quiet and stop talking because I can’t laugh at my own hunger until I’m no longer hungry. I think everyone has had a hungry moment at some point.
Well my fab friend came to the rescue and the day was saved. If that is not an angel I don’t know what is. I texted her and expressed my gratitude again. I can’t wait until I can do the same for someone.

TSW30(2)-Describe A Moment/Day When Being Single Really Sucked

Standard

Oh does it really just have to be one moment/day? It sucks all of the time. I will do my best to go down the line. These are my opinions but I have a suspicion that other singles may feel the same way. 

Being single sucks when you see many of your friends in awesome relationships, getting engaged, getting married, having babies, living life as a family. Because when you are single, its just you. The Bible says that man was not meant to be alone, and in theory that is why community is emphasized. But in some areas,the community as a whole is unwelcoming to singles. A lot of times when people are in relationships, they forget what it was like to be single. 

Being single sucks when you are fresh out of a relationship, or anytime people ask you about your ex, or assume that you and your ex are still together. Now, don’t get me wrong, I answer everyone with a big smile and a laugh but in one week my ex and I will have been over for a year. That is twelve months, shoot that is a full three hundred and sixty-five days and to have people in real life and online think that I am still in a relationship rips daggers into me. Because I am super single. I am so single a dollar bill has nothing on me. 

Being single sucks when people tell you things like “It will happen”, “There is a great guy out there for you”, “You just need to be nice”, “You just need to go out” “You just need to _______”. The truth is none of us knows where our next partner is. I promise you Mr. Next has not been beating down my door(real or imagined). How do I know? Because I have went on one date in the past three hundred and sixty-five days and Mr. Wrong didn’t cut it. 

Being single sucks because I do feel empty inside. I feel like I’m still not good enough for a good guy. I feel like I’ve wasted my life. I feel like my happy ever after isn’t going to happen. These are the moments when being single sucks. Being single sucks when you don’t have kids because you don’t have your own family. You don’t get to experience all of those joys that people have when they have kids. Being single sucks when you go to weddings and you don’t catch the bouquet(yes, that is a thing). Being single sucks because you don’t have someone to share this journey called life with. Being single sucks because you create all of these what if scenarios in your mind with past relationships and then you snap to reality and realize they were just fantasy. 

So yes, even though I usually have a smile on my face, or I literally laugh out loud, my general consensus is that being single sucks. Now I think if I had a tad more money and was really independent, I would be out there creating my own adventures(still in my dreams). In the meantime I continue to pray for my future partner and throw myself into my goals or a good book because its just easier that way.
