March Madness - Day 12

Adulting can be rewarding.....

But, sometimes, I miss being a kid!

Summers off.....
Weekends off.....
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?

We don't!

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?

  1. Being a kids was just down right FUN! There were no bills, not responsibilities (Chores of course) but nothing but are riding bikes, playing basketball, or going to the beach. I miss most the summer vacations, it wasn't anything special just but I went to private school and had to wear a uniform so I just didn't have to wear a uniform for the entire summer.

Who is your Gnat??

The summer is upon us and you know what that means.

Well, sure. It could mean many things.

But for me, it means that gnats will be in the air. Buzzing around my head. Irritating me.

I am sure you are familiar with gnats. They are small two winged flies that resemble mosquito. Let's not even get started with mosquitos. 🙎

As for gnats, they seem to appear out of nowhere. They are always there when you are trying to enjoy the sunshine.

This is sometimes what we experience when we have overbearing individuals in our lives. Usually parents or loved ones. Maybe a supervisor. Sometimes, this can be your accountability partner.

Please don't tell me I am the only person with an overbearing individual in my life? You know the one....

The person who constantly ask you about your goals.
The person who continuously shares opportunities with you.
