It's that time

I love this time of year because the weather is suppose to be turning warmer , the flowers are blooming, and baseball season has started. I also hate this time of year because, where I am at in my life, I have to figure out what job or jobs I will be working from now until the end of summer to pay the bills. I am tired of this! My role in the past has been a nanny. Which will most likely happen again. But now it seems to be a problem of WHO will I work for? Usually I have some options and now there aren't that many. I am a bit stressed out by it all. I am praying that God will give me peace and the more people I talk with about my situation, maybe someone will know of someone who needs a responsible and loving girl like me to watch their kiddos!

I just have to brag a bit about my dear, dear friend Amy. She is in charge of leading an amazing children's conference that is being held this week. The amount of time, creativity, and leadership she has put into making this an amazing conference is unbelievable.

Today was the first day. As someone who works with kids, I was encouraged and spurred on to go out and meet students where they are at in life. As an educator, flooding their minds with tons of information just won't cut it. It is so imporatant to see who they are, get what they are doing and understand how they are acting. I am feeling re-energized and filled up to go make an impact on student's lives.

Soon and very soon

It's been one of those weeks. The kind that never end, that you want to put behind you, forget about, get the picture.

I am looking forward to a new beginning tomorrow. I am in need of a fresh start and a good outcome.

This week I will wrap up my last week of teaching....WAHOOO!!!! And then I have a night class this week and next and then I am officially done. The time has flown by, I can't believe it is almost over. It is a great feeling to be so close to the end, but then I am nervous for the next part of my life. I hate that I am anxious, worried, and nervous about finding the right teaching job in the right place at the right time. I am ready to have ONE job that has a steady income and insurance. But in the midst of all this chaos I also have to figure out a job for the next four months until teaching begins. I keep telling day at a day at a time!!!

As I have said before I am working out and eating healthy. I am trying to lose a little more weight before I go on our family vacation in 7 weeks. I am motivated to work harder to reach my goal.

In the past few weeks I have encountered more and more people older than me, let's say above 40, who are going on diets and just not satisfied with how they look. This makes me so frustrated to know that at that age, one has not come to grip with how they look. Why does body image have to be such a consuming thing? Do girls ever get to a point of being content? Will this always be a problem?

I don't want to get to the age of 50 and realize that I wasted years of time being so worried about the weight I am or what size clothes I fit into. It is hard with the society that we live in. I think that is part of the problem but the rest lies within. We or I need to continue to change my perception and not dwell on this. There are bigger things in life that should be of more concern.
