here's a story.
yesterday was one of those days where i thought,
"school is too hard. i don't want to do it."
you know what i'm talking about?
i missed my classes because of a dermotologist appointment.
[where, bytheway, my doctor never fails at having someone new to set me up with. but it's not weird because i'm good friends with him and his family.]
afterward i stopped by home to visit my mom.
she texted me saying,
"you need to come see the cute projects my sewing club has done."
of course i had to stop by, my life studies focus on crafting and sewing.
the projects were adorable and it kind of overwhelmed me.
i said to mom, "i just don't want to be in school. i want to be able to do projects like this and things i like to do."
now please don't get me wrong, i love school.
if i didn't love school i wouldn't be studying to become a teacher.
but sometimes i just get so frustrated with the things required of me.
i like being on top of things, i like getting everything done.
and when i simply don't have enough time to finish it all it kind of gets me down.
the day proceeded on.
i had amazing lunch with the above mentioned sewing club.
it consisted of japanese squash soup with crescent rolls and was delicious. i talked to my mom for a while which is always fun.
i headed back to school not really wanting to be going back.
the night wasn't very productive in the sense of school either.
i went to DI.
i did tae bo.
and i talked with my cousin for quite a while.
it was all good but something needed to change.
my desire to learn and work hard.
and when i went to bed i said, "Heavenly Father, i really need your help."
today i am ready.
ready to learn, ready to do this.
this next week and a half have a lot in store.
[maybe like four tests in three days. yeah, that's crazy.]
but i can do it.
i can do all things with Heavenly Father's help.
i can do things i have set my mind to.
we need to ask for help.
we need to stay positive.
and as i learned at FHE on monday,
all experiences, good and bad, help to form the person you are.
i'm changing my attitude.
