Adulting can be rewarding.....
Two weeks off for Christmas.....
One week off in March or April.....
Random days off throughout the year.....
Yup, there are times I miss being a kid!
Lots of time to take breaks. A break from routine. A break from school. A break from homework. I break from peer pressure. A break from stress.
When do parents get a break?
Oh, how I miss being a kid!
Sometimes I just want a break too.
Despite not getting a break, I am thankful that I am no longer a kid.
Being an adult has allowed me to see, feel, and experience so many more things.
Things that were both good and bad.
Things that helped to make me the person I am today.
As an adult, I have learned how to push through pain. I have learned how to fight against fear. I have learned how to stand firm on my faith.
After all, Jeremiah 29:11 reminds me, "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."
I realize that I may not get as many breaks as I'd like but there's a plan for for my consistency. There's a plan for my steadfastness. There's a plan for my tenacity.
When I hang in there, day in and day out, my future continues to look brighter and brighter.
I know breaks will come in due season.
What do you miss most about being a kid?
