Queen of the Nerds

A few weeks ago, I couldn’t sleep one night. So I spent some time watching YouTube videos comparing different styles of planners and videos on how to better utilize my planner.

2014: Choose Joy

My resolution, or goal, or one word, or what have you, for 2014 is “choose joy.” I have lost my joy. This was brought to my attention in a not insignificant way Monday morning, just as I was to leave the house for a much needed time away with God.

I’m starting to realize a lot of the disappointment I experience is in direct correlation to my unrealistic expectations. Okay, maybe not unrealistic, but not altogether grounded in reality. This week, thus far, has been one big exercise in adjusting my expectations to avoid abject disappointment. I am supposed to run a marathon on Saturday…in… Continue reading Disappointment
