Sometimes my schedule is booked. well.. not sometimes.. all the time. Every year of high school and middle school has been booked solid.
work, school, dance, plays, basketball, upward, parties, parks, fairs, just being with friends, cleaning, making thousands of peanut butter sandwiches, babysitting, youth group, family beach trips, overnight camp, day camp, holidays, shopping, Cambodia (meetings and prep), youth group trips, games, Que Que Que, date group, the twelve, the park group. and so much more.
Some would say I am overbooked, I don't like that term though.. OVERBOOKED, I'm not overbooked, my schedule is just full. Overbooked is when you commit yourself to too many things, and I don't believe I've done that. People always tell me that I have booked way tooo much. But... I feel like I'm supposed to be helping out all these people, supposed to be hanging out with these people, supposed to be right where I am. I have run into that problem, but I feel like the Lord has so graciously led me to make decisions where I'm not. Some would disagree.
Some people get stressed with this much.. but I think everyone should look at their life and see how exciting it is. ESP. if you are super busy. Everyday is a new day that God has planned, every moment (in my life), something different is happening. Instead of stressing out... why not thank God for the amazing adventure He has laid before you.
now something I've run into is over COMMITTING. That is different.. and I've had to work on that so that I don't find myself letting people down over and over and having to choose which one I'm supposed to please.. more. God doesn't call us to that. This would go with the term, "overbooked."
this was sorta.. a circle of writing but I just felt like I wanted to say it. Just a reminder myself to be thankful and not stressed cause the feeling of stress is not from my Father.
haha I re read all those things that I have been a part of these years.. and I do miss some of it... my schedule is now basically full of upward, basketball, parties just cause of holidays, and babysitting Ev. oh where does the time go? WHERE DID THE SUMMER GO?!
Now that list I typed yesterday, I have to attend to all of that today... go team go!
