Do you every have those weeks or days where everything starts off on a high note, but as the day or week progresses things just aren’t great. That was this week for me. Things started out I was going strong getting ahead and tackling my school work, projects at work, getting my daily 5 mile walk in at night. But yesterday morning I feel like I just hit a wall. I was sluggish, light headed, just in general blah.
I kinda feel like I’m in a slump, but I know that I’m not if that makes any kinda sense at all. Maybe I just need to change my schedule up a little bit or go on an adventure. I haven’t been on a photography trip, or a road trip with friends in a while and I miss it. I really want to make a trip down to Brazos Bend State Park, I think it is my favorite state park in Texas, but i’m also biased because the park is very close to my town, and it”s one of the only state parks I’ve been to (I’ve been to a few, but there are quite a few parks in Texas).
As I was saying, Brazos Bend is a really cool park, and is personally one of my favorites, not just because there are really good fishing lakes, alligators, turtles, hiking paths, an observatory, and other wildlife, but the park has 3 different terrains that all meet up within the confines of the park. You’ve got swamp lands, tall grass prairie land, and forests. Its diverse and there’s lots to see and do. I wanna go now and get some wildlife pictures!
Anyways, I’m not feeling well this evening so I’m taking some down time to rest and read and in general be lazy, which has provided me plenty of time to read some of my many books and watch some of my many movies! I feel like I never stop collecting books and movies. I enjoy them so much that I will probably always pick them up here and there.
I’m very proud that I’m maintaining my A/B average in all of my classes this semester. Last year it was hard work trying to find the balance and this year I think I’ve finally gotten it down! (Knock on wood). I get my school assignments done, go to work, and I’ve been trying really hard to keep on top of things there, and I come home and have sometime to maintain a social life! I’m very happy with things right now, I just tend to get bored easily, which is why I think a change in routine will be good for me. So maybe I’ll find a park to go to or find some little critter to take a picture of!
Today I was reminded of Galatians 5:22-23 (HCSB), The Fruits of the Spirit at work, I’ve been reflecting on it a lot today reminding myself of each trait and trying to remember to apply it to my daily life. “22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith,[a] 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
