Last night Whitney and I went to the mavs game with one of our best friends, Georgia! We have been friends with Georgia since 3rd grade and I can’t imagine my life without her. We had a blast at the game (it was a close one)! We also loved creeping on Khloe Kardashian as she was sitting on our row. Hehe! Here are some pictures from the evening:) Thanks Georgia for such a fun night! You too, Hunter!!
I really shouldn’t be doing a blog post right now..I mean really shouldn’t! I have an exam tomorrow that is literally going to kill me BUT I am feeling motivated and inspired right now so why would I pass up the chance to share those feelings with you? My roommate BriAnn and I were just talking about how recently I’ve been kinda down. Just hard on myself and really very little motivation for school, or much of anything, and I know I could blame it on my injury or the gloomy weather but circumstances like this shouldn’t determine my hearts feelings! See to me there is a difference between “mood”, “feelings”, and what I just called my hearts feelings. You’re heart is a place of extreme emotion like, joy, peace, desperation, anger, disappointment, all of those feelings well up inside of you and at times you can’t even figure out where they are coming from! Well with my recent absent-mindedness I have let gloom come in and hangout over my soul. I’m always counting down, thinking about what’s next or maybe even worse, “remember when”. And I’m SO happy that I’m recognizing this! Where is the present tense in all of this?! It isn’t even there! I am completely obsessed with memories of amazing days or trips or imagining all that is to come, and no, there isn’t anything dreadful about those thoughts but when they consume you and take you away from right now-the very present moment-well then you get yourself into trouble.
I guess my whole point of this post is to place into words some goals I have, that I have been so/so doing. but not anymore! Putting things out there allows you to have accountability and reminders of what you said you would indeed do! SO a few quick easy ones:
- I am planning on running the Bearathon with my big Elsa Kaiser in just a few short weeks! (Praying my foot will be in top shape!)
- Continuing daily quiet times and scripture memorization
- Daily Exercise (as soon as the Dr. okays it!)
“Someday you will wake up, look in the mirror and see someone you didn’t know was there. Choose carefully who you will see, the best version of yourself? Or the worst?”
And now for the kicker that I have been slacking on. Some of you may or may not practice lent and to be honest with you I don’t usually get very far into the Easter season without completely breaking my “promise” to God. This year my approach is different. I won’t get into a ton of detail but to really see my thoughts on lent head [here]. This year I was really wrestling with the idea of giving something up…especially something that would be HARD! Ew, who wants that?? Well I really have felt like God has been asking for more of me (as He will always do) and I have discovered through prayer, and time spent in thought that this Easter season I will be doing the Daniel Fast. It’s a biblical approach on fasting, and I believe God will use it to further my relationship with Him, my trust in Him, and a disciplined lifestyle!
I don’t know if you’ve ever thought about the Lenten season but I think it’s an amazing way to journey to the cross. Take time to think about what it is God is asking of you to give up..and join me! 🙂 We’re all in this together.
This past weekend was a BLAST! It was my Moms birthday. [Birthday post here] I think she had a great day! We went to Elite (classic Waco) before heading to watch Whitney in SING with Pi Phi. I was so sad I wasn’t able to be in SING this year BUT you will see me in the CrAzY mad hatter costume in PIGSKIN! Pigskin is a tradition at Baylor in the fall, the top 8 groups from SING get to go to Pigskin, quite the honor!My grandparents were in from Houston to see the show and it was so fun seeing them. I love you Papa and Gramma! I am blessed with such an amazing family.
Saturday morning we were able to celebrate DAD by going to the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in Waco for Pi Phi Dads day. That is always one of my favorite luncheons. Thankful for a Dad who has always been there for me. He is always encouraging me, always motivating and always reminding me who is in control in my life. Thank you Lord for giving me these two amazing parents. I am thankful for the example they’ve given me so someday I can attempt to be as great of a parent as they have been to me.
While this weekend was a blast my right foot has still been hurting. I was able to get into the doctor Monday morning, thank you Lord, and it seems I have tendonitis in my foot:( No running. I have an ankle brace now but it will be off in 7 days!! (10 days total) I am SO thankful that it will be off before Spring Break because we are going to Hawaii!!!! Still praying for quick healing. That’s pretty much the update on what’s going on in my world! Lots of tests coming up this week too! How is your week looking? Where ever you are I hope you have a wonderful week!
Doctors appointments, tests, trips LOTS of things happening before Spring Break in 2 weeks! This morning I went to the doctor who has given me an ankle brace to wear for 10days…off just in time for spring break! WAHOO! Thank you Lord! Can’t wait to be running again…I’ll put up a post on this weekend later this week when I have time to brag on how awesome Pi Phi did and all the other Pigskin bound groups!…Until then here’s a current favorite video/song of mine..Hi, Justin and Selena!
