I guess I’m in a post-stealing mood this week because today’s post is borrowed from the wonderful Lisa! I love doing these types of posts because I find they can be great journaling exercises. Enjoy!
I wish I could afford to go on a cruise for my birthday. (There is a perfect 4-day one that leaves the day after my birthday and travels to the Bahamas but it’s just not in the cards. I guess two cruises in one year will have to be enough!)
I want to get the “okay” to do more strenuous exercise during my follow-up orthopedic appointment next week. I am struggling with motivation since I’ve been relegated to just light exercising because it doesn’t feel like “enough”.
I always pick Dutch up for a long “good morning” hug every morning. His body is so warm and sleepy and just absolutely perfect.
I need to be smarter about my money. I need to tighten up my budget and may have to start using the envelope system for my everyday needs!
I feel anxious when I think about my future.
I think way more than I should. If only there was a way to silence my brain!
I ask questions infrequently. I really need to break this fear of looking stupid and just starting asking, no matter what other people may think.
I hear the dryer and the dishwasher working simultaneously. (Have I mentioned lately how nice it is to have our own washer & dryer? It’s fabulous.)
I smell Dutch’s stinky dachshund breath whenever he gives me a kiss. It’s one of the most comforting smells in the world for me!
I ponder what my next step is going to be and when that is going to take place.
I seek for God’s wisdom when I’m confused or unsure of what to do about rocky situations.
I play board games more competitively than most. I am a whiz at trivia-type board games, but am literally the worst Monopoly player there ever was. (Obviously, I am not good at budgeting in real life or fake! Sigh.)
I try to see both sides of every issue, no matter how passionately I feel about the issue.
I prefer the NFL to college football, but I still like to catch a few college games every week.
I wonder why I am so awkward and shy in social situations – even when I’m meeting people I know!
I believe that God has a crazy-amazing plan for my life and as long as I follow in His will, I will see that plan come to fruition.
I mean every word I write in my letters to my future husband. Those words are my heart and soul and it makes me giddy to think about a special man reading them someday.
I never imagined my life turning out the way it has, but I’m okay with where I am now. I am exactly where I am meant to be.
I plan on meeting a group of girls I’ve never met next week for tapas and sangria. I am scared to death (as the last time I did something like this, it was awful and I felt so left out and basically cried on my way home and yes, I am that pathetic) but I know I will feel better for having tried.
I hope my review today (!) goes better than I expect it to.
I worry about my future on a daily basis.
I dislike condescending people. Quickest way to turn me off is to treat me like my ideas and thoughts are silly.
I struggle with self-doubt and insecurity a lot. It can be exhausting to be inside my head!
