“I have to do more than simply endure the next several months.” –Journal entry, 11/27/12
Focusing on enduring life for a period of time until something (a semester?) is over or until something bigger happens kind of… sucks. It’s miserable to dig a figurative trench and determine to suffer through x until y happens.
I drove to school this morning with a particularly disdainful view of my lousy attitude. Berating yourself for failing to enjoy life as you should doesn’t help matters.
The word of God does. Colorful sunrises do. Perspective does.
Love never gives up…
[Love] puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end.
1 Corinthians 13:3-7, The Message
So I clung to perspective for dear life, drove to school, and drowned my attitude in a cup of liquid bliss: strong coffee. It occurred to me that I like my life right now, and that it’s an affront to everything good the Lord has given me to wish six months away.
