Hi there, my friends! I hope you had a blessed Easter, a meaningful Passover, and just an all-around wonderful weekend. We enjoyed some refreshing time with family.
Besides the holiday celebration, last week was also my birthday week! Monday was my birthday, to be exact. We had a nice albeit low-key celebration.
Birthdays always spur reflection in me, but the amount of introspection this year has surpassed all the other years. You see, a lot of things in my life have been shifting lately…
As you may recall me mentioning, my house flooded about two months ago – rendering it essentially unlivable, as it remains now. I won’t burden you with all the gory details of that saga, but suffice it to say it’s been a tryng time. The house situation, on top of all that happened last year, has left me re-evaluating many things.
Besides the house situation, other areas of my life are shifting as well. It’s as if God is rearranging things — wiping away the old, making way for the new. While I believe the changes to be for the longterm good, change is still uncomfortable. Stepping into the unknown is a little scary. But it’s good! I’m eagerly anticipating how this next chapter of life is going to shake out.
Anyway, I say all of that to preface you reading my list… The list isn’t meant to be negative at all. It just contains some real and tough lessons I’ve learned in the last year. All good — just part of being an adult.
Adulting is hard, y’all! 🙂
