Trying.

These two weeks, while filled with many (many!) wonderful things have been trying.

Trying to manage my time.

Trying to meet deadlines.

Trying to hold my ground.

Trying not to be bossy.

Trying to see the bright side.

Trying not to get furious when people can't understand or keep up.

Trying not to be mean.

Trying to balance. Trying to juggle. Trying to be content.

A lot of things are going on right now, and they all seem to be colliding with one another.

And if I'm to be quite honest, I've been struggling.

Maybe my struggles haven't been apparent on the outside, but they've ruled on the inside.

But still, I have to remind myself (again, even as I type these words) that at the end of each day, and each week, I have much to be thankful.

Much.

holy experience
