Well, it has been a minute since I wrote on here regularly. So much has happened but I won’t really touch on everything that has happened (mostly because I, unfortunately, can’t remember all the things, I just know where I am now haha).
Why haven’t I been writing? Yeah, I don’t have the greatest excuses for it. It just didn’t happen. 😪
Truth be told, I’m just realizing the workload that I put myself under this semester. It didn’t really hit me until I was trying to coordinate with my friend Chelsie time to work on a project for our Business Leadership class. After I laid out my schedule for her, she just asked me “When do you play?” I hadn’t quite thought of that. When do I play? (I’m taking 15 credits this semester as well as working 30 hours each week! 😵) I had to ask myself her question and also the question, “How balanced is my life right now? Do I find joy in what I am doing?” Honestly, if you haven’t asked yourself those questions recently, I recommend it.
These last two weeks, I have gone through each of my activities with these questions in mind and found that, after I rearranged some parts of my schedule, I need to remember my “Why” more often. A “Why” is that deep reason behind everything that you do. I put more meaning into each of my actions, my work, and my relationships. As I have done so, I have felt an increase in my dedication and even more so, my happiness.
So. I have started to volunteer more. Each Saturday, I spend from 9:30 AM until 2 PM working in the Provo City Center Temple for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. (If you don’t know about temples of the Church, you should definitely check out this link or shoot me a message! Basically, temples are where members of the Church can make covenants or promises between themselves and God.) Temples have always been a huge part of my life and I can’t think of a better way to continue my personal growth. Growth makes me happy 😊.
Also, I went on a date this weekend! (It’s been a minute lol.) I took Chelsie, my friend from my Business Leadership class, to the Fear Factory in SLC. If you haven’t been, I recommend it! The haunted house was extremely well done and discounted tickets are available at Costco. My friend Alec accompanied us with his friend Angie and we had an absolute riot of a time.
Anyway, I hope to start writing more consistently now! I found time this week because it’s Fall Break, but I think I have arranged my time in such a way that it is possible. Thank you for liking, commenting, and subscribing.
Love you all,
