This week I was in what I consistently describe as a ‘funk.’
So, like the mature, independent adult that I am, I called my mom to complain.
But, this time she wasn’t having it! (Can you believe it?!?)
Instead she said, “maybe your attitude needs to change.”
And I realized that I LITERALLY have nothing to complain about. I mean, I was complaining b/c I have such a long commute and took home so much work and didn’t have much time for ‘me’ stuff after lesson planning, cooking dinner, and working out. Bahaha. (yes, first world problems, I know)
But that reminder. Of how incredibly lucky I am. To have a job. To have time to work out AND lesson plan AND cook dinner. That I had a weekend full of planned things to do. These are actually specific answers to prayer. And yet I chose to be ‘funky’ about it instead of grateful.
No more of that!
And then I was reminded of a spoken word poem by George Watsky titled, “Lucky,” in which he basically has a long rant about how incredibly lucky we are to be alive. And that was it. That’s what I needed to get out of my ‘funk.’ And maybe, maybe this truth is what you needed to.
p.s. Only 3 weeks till spring break!! Who’s excited??
