I have never been so busy in my entire life. Four College classes, three jobs, prepping to lead a Bible study, Speech club, Messiah rehearsals, helping plan a friend's wedding, a Halloween ball, hygiene, eating, Pen-pals, sleeping, gym. I just realized that it isn't humanly possible to finish everything that I have to do this week. No matter how much I do in a day there's more to start the minute I wake up again. I feel swallowed.
Sometimes when I'm about to drown I start to laugh and think about what it will be like to look back in a couple months and remember how stressed out I was and how small a part of my life it was.
Sometimes I need to close the books, delay the meetings, put off the dishes, and take five minutes to forget.
Sometimes I need to slow dance by myself in the living room to this^ song.
Then things seem a little bit brighter,
a little more possible,
and a little more at peace.
