Exhausted. Totally, Utterly Exhausted.

exhausted

I am exhausted. Physically, mentally, emotionally exhausted. Last year on May 12, I was 11 days away from getting married. You’d think I would have been more exhausted then. Wrong. I am way more exhausted now. And yet, I actually feel okayContinue reading “Exhausted. Totally, Utterly Exhausted.”

Isaiah 41:10 – Basically the favourite scripture verse of all anxious Christians. I took the background photo for the image above when I visited Prince Edward Island with my family three years ago. This verse reminds me of that vacation because I found it around that same time.

Aside from when I was a kid and memorized Bible verses because I wanted a candy reward in Sunday School, I think this is the first verse I truly memorized.

I wondered why she cared so much. In high school, I was happy with 70’s. Although I aim for much higher now that I’m in university, I’m still not hard on myself when it comes to school. I’m not a perfectionist when it comes to my personal space either. I’m disorganized. I’m a slob. I’m messy. I’m perfectly fine with making mistakes when it comes to work – I know that I will learn from them. However, when it comes to personal failures, I feel like the world is about to end.  Continue reading “Failures”
