Should You Rest When You Have Yet To Succeed?

Sheesh. Who knew that life could get so hectic?! 

I have never had two jobs while in school. It seems like just yesterday when I quit my job to focus on classes and now check me out. It's not as bad as it seems. There's a high chance that I am making my life out to be busier than it is.

I think that is something each of us have a bad habit of doing. At this time, I am making the attempt to create a habit of rest. Whether I am overthinking, doing more than I should be and over-working myself, I am not resting enough.

Does that mean I should have abandoned my blog, especially when I have committed to take part in a challenge? No. Does that mean I can always say "Life happens" when I find myself drifting away from my blog? Not at all. So, you may yell at me. I need discipline. The thing is, sometimes I make the least important things have much more significance than that which I should entirely be devoted to.

That goes for school. That goes for work. People in my life. More importantly, that's my relationship with Christ. I find myself placing things of less important on a pedestal.

With all of that I ask.... Am I allowed to rest my mind when I am not where I want to be in life? What determines the "to be" in my life and on which scale ?

Right now, I am only taking Italian and Water aerobics because this is my last semester and I needed 4 credits. It's been a long way coming. I graduated high school in 2007 and I feel like Eric Thomas when I say I have been working 8 years for a 2 year degree. Still, I am proud of myself. Along with school, I am working at a Caribbean restaurant in the night and on weekends and working part time/temp at a really awesome spot in the city. I'd rather not say because eventually I would like to work full time there.

I have a long ways to go. I have learned to fully be content with myself and my situation, but at the same time to work hard for what I want. Lately, I've been trying to do more research as far as what I want to do with the rest of my life. I am 26 years old, turning 27 in May and I moved back home with my mother. There is so much to accomplish in life and sitting around waiting for it to happen will not make any changes.

Sorry for the delay! But, rest well!
