The snow went up to my knees. I’ve never seen that much snow in a non-mountain setting before. New England is crazy with its weather. But it’s not necessarily the snow or rain that makes you cold; it’s the chilling wind. It feels like your face is being blown off or something, like walking into the arms of torture. That’s how cold it gets.
This week’s been a bit rough – either because of the first real day of classes, getting overwhelmed by the workload, or because of the lack of warmth I’m getting. I’ve decided, after last weekend, to become more Christ-like. I guess I’ve been struggling with my faith for a bit, but I feel like things are slowly coming back together. I try to remember not to do a lot of things like judging others, worrying about the future, and being overly pessimistic. It’s definitely a hard process, but I think it’s definitely there. I’m remembering to actually pray whenever I do remember; remembering that compassion is key; and remembering that life is not eternal here on earth.
Life is so unpredictable and no one can really prepare for what will happen tomorrow. All you have is the today and nothing more.
And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? [Luke 12:25 ]
Learn to forgive and move on, not holding onto the past as if it will do anything or add anything to your life – something I need to work on. I need to try to take everyday for its own and stop obsessing over the future.
January has been busy and tiring. A lot of happenings, overcomings, and prayers. But now it’s finally February and my mind I’m focusing elsewhere. I already know it’ll be a tough month – it’s February, a weird, depressing month. But it’ll be all well with my soul.
