I'm blogging from my bed this morning, exhausted from a crazy (but fun) Thanksgiving weekend! I'm also having this delicious vanilla iced coffee I picked up at Target over the weekend. It's wonderful! Anyway, grab a cup for yourself and join me for a bit! It's a new week, which means a new Weekly Wishes!!
Before I get started, every week along with the weekly wishes link up, there's a photo challenge with a particular theme. I usually don't have anything to contribute but this week's theme is "Animals" so obviously I can't pass up sharing a cute picture of my little baby boy Duke!
Fun Duke fact: he usually sleeps by my feet at night but lately he's been enjoying stretching out right on my pillow where my head should go. He falls asleep before I do and then gets grumpy if I wake him up and make him move. Literally, he growls.
Now on to today's topic...I'm not going to write out my wishes from last week on here because I am beyond embarrassed of the fact that I didn't cross a single thing off of it! If you really must know everything I failed at doing, you can check it out here...
This Weeks Wishes/To-Do List:
1. Get as much done as I can from last weeks list.
2. Limit my phone use and focus on enjoying my Holidates with Andy. I cannot tell you how many times I glance at my phone to check Instagram or emails while he and I are out together. It's a terrible habit.
3. Take a deep breath and enjoy this week/month. It's the most wonderful time of the year! SAVOR IT!
Short list, I know, but I feel as though it's one of the most powerful one's-for me at least. I've been on a partial medical leave from school ever since I got sick, meaning that I barely take enough classes to be considered a part time student. It was a weird transition for me because I was so used to the craziness of a full time schedule (I really thrived in this setting), and since then I've dealt with a lot of internal guilt. I've felt guilty for the fact that I have more time on my hands than most of my peers, I've felt guilty for the fact that I don't have as much school stress as others and I'm just on the sideline watching. Guilt for no reason really. It's not my fault this illness is inside of me. I feel so relieved to be done with school for this quarter because I was really clinging on for dear life. It was TOUGH. I enjoyed what I learned, and truthfully the material wasn't so difficult, it was more keeping up with my assignments while feeling maybe the most sick and the most tired I have ever felt in my life. It took me this long to really feel proud of myself for sticking with school and work while going through this. I hate to toot my own horn, but I rock guys! SO. I'm going to make the best of the phase that I'm in, because it is just a phase and I have faith that God will get me through it and I won't always feel this sick. I'm going to enjoy my day to day life more freely and not focus on making so many plans in order to make myself feel busier and less lazy...because I'm not lazy. I'm taking care of myself, and I'm thankful that I've finally come to terms with this. So cheers to December, and a new attitude and a grateful heart!
