Hello friends! How are you guys doing? Comment down below and let me know!! Today I want to talk about something that God has been teaching me, and that is to take one day at a time. It seems like a very simple concept until you realize what it means.
I have always been interested in slow living and minimalism. I follow a couple of YouTubers (The Fairyland Cottage, and calico and twine) whose content is all about slow living and zero waste/minimalism. I consider myself a pretty frugal person in most aspects in my life. If I’m shopping then I will try to get the best deal, ask my mom.
Coming home from college for spring break I was expecting to get a little bit of a break, but because of Auntie Rona I am forced to be at home doing school through Zoom University. (PSA: If you are confused by my references then here it is: Auntie Rona= Coronavirus, Zoom University= a new meme about how all of us college students aren’t going to our original universities because we’re all on Zoom) I feel like I’m in this weird limbo state of mind. I’m still in school, but I also feel like I’m on a never-ending vacation where I get the same amount of sleep as I would on campus which is basically NONE! This past week has been a very difficult one school wise. I had a lot of deadlines that had to be met, and I was definitely not prepared.
Normally I am very good at adjusting in a very quick span of time, but this whole Zoom and quarantine thing has just thrown me for a loop. Maybe it just came at the weirdest time. Usually I can adjust quickly because I see the change coming. I adjust to big cites, ie. New York and London, because I know I'm going to those places. I didn't adjust very well with college life, but it was better than I thought! I think my problem, in this case, was that I was so prepared to go back to school and finish out my semester, but now I'm doing school on my couch. I have been asking God why he let this happen, but he keeps reminding me to breathe, slow down, and that he has everything in control. So I'm gonna take his advice and slow down. I'll let you know how it goes!
I hope you guys are using this time to slow down. That's it for now guys!
