We need to have a talk.
Your life has been busy, there is no argument there.
You moved across the country, started graduate school, and began a new job.
You moved into a house with four strangers, you've spent time getting to know people in your program and outside of it.
You spend many hours reading, few hours sleeping. and many moments not appreciating.
You keep wanting to jump ahead, but I think you need to slow down and smell the roses.
Yes, I just told you to smell the roses. Pump the brakes and just stop for a minute. Stand outside and appreciate the weather, listen to what your roommate is sharing with you, and be aware of your surroundings.
I know you love being busy and all, but just stop it.
Just breathe. Just rest. Just be.
The future will still be there if you do this. Your tomorrow is still being granted to you.
Can you just say thank you for this minute, this hour, this day?
Can you just let life be and welcome what is given to you?
I want you to love yourself through these changes in your life and to give yourself some grace.
Sometimes you're not going to make the best choices, actually, you're going to make some pretty bad ones, but its okay. Get up, brush the dirt of your knees, and start again.
Forgive yourself and love yourself.
You are not perfect nor were you created to be.
You are human and with that comes the actions of being human.
Love yourself dear friend, love yourself.
