There's just too much going on right now.
It's hard to focus and think clearly about anything while being pulled in so many different directions.
I think my cousin Sara shared the best course of action for this on her blog, Stories and Songs, yesterday.
Ok, so maybe hiding isn't the most productive way to deal with life, but sometimes I just wish I could pull the covers over my head and disappear for a few days.
And that's where I am today, wishing I were in bed with the covers pulled up all the way.
What is it that makes us want to retreat when faced with difficult situations? Why don't we just look at the difficult times and think, well it'll at least build character?
I think it boils down to the fact that we are always looking for the easy way out. And, when you are looking for the easy way out you don't experience the things in life that'll build character or, as author Donald Miller would put it, write a good story.
So, I'm going to try to not retreat. I'm going to work through everything that's going on.
Hopefully I'll be better for having lived through it.
