we were on a break!

Thursday, December 22, 2016

Friends! Hi! Oh how I have missed you all very much! It is officially break, well it has been for a week now, but you know what that means! This meme can be used, yet again! 

So let's have a talk about what a break is meant to be. My break has been very busy and not very relaxing, which is the exact opposite of what it should be. I have had time to paint, write, and binge watch Supergirl (11/10 would recommend), but that is really all. Breaks are supposed to be times where you have no plans, you just relax and go with the flow. But I really haven't had a day where I had absolutely nothing to do, except for today. 

I woke up this morning, made myself a cup of coffee, read my Youversion devotionals (Highly recommend: Waiting Here For You by Louie Giglio, Evangelize, Don't Fossilize!, and She Reads Truth: 5 Favorites), and wrote a super short poem about God's reasons. It was really soothing to know that I could shower whenever I felt like it and eat lunch whenever I got hungry. I love not having a schedule or a plan for the day. (Here's a selfie of Amanda and me in Canada.)

It's only 12:30 in the afternoon and I have so much I could do with the rest of my day. I could head to Trader Joe's for the third time in a week (I mean they are summoning me with their Spotify commercials), I could go to the Plymouth Coffee Bean since I haven't been since before school started, or I could find recipes that I'd love to adapt and create over break. That's the thing about a break, you don't have to decide what you're going to do, you just do it. 

Stop trying to figure out what to do with your break and just live your life. Oscar Wilde once said, "to live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." Stop just existing and start living.

P.S. I'm usually not this inspiring, so don't get used to it :P
