Happy Father’s Day!

This is my dad. I am extremely thankful for him and what he does for his family. We can count on him for anything, and he has done SO much for his family. Of course we get into fights and I have learned that we have the same temper, but we always move on and he continues to call me “Love.” So thank you dad for everything, I am so blessed to have you in my life. Thank you for all that you have done and thank you for the love and joy you give to your entire family. I love you!

Advice.

So I’ve been home for about a month now. My summer in Michigan is already FLYING by. It’s making me so sad! I feel like I just got here! Then (God willingly) if I get accepted, I’ll be leaving for the Philippines in a month and a half! What is that? I wish time could just pause. I’m already missing my family and friends and I’m not even 100% sure I’m leaving! Grrrr. So far my summer has been…ehh…I’m not exactly sure how to describe it. I’ve enjoyed being home with my family and hanging out with some friends, but it’s just not exactly how I wanted this summer to be. I thought this would be one of the best summers ever. But I guess that’s everyone’s mindset on the incoming summer, right? The thing is I’m not sure how to solve this situation…and the more and more I wait for something to happen, so much time goes by and I’m already halfway into my summer at home. 😦 Why. So as of right now I have decided that I am going to take this summer into my own hands, and spend it the way I want to spend it and who I want to spend it with. I mean, who knows, I might not see these people for the next four years! Yikes.

Tonight I’ve been thinking about my life. Here’s advice for anyone who wants to take it. I don’t know if I’m even qualified for giving advice. I’ve made so many mistakes and still am, but it’s during those times where your wisdom can really grow on you. Advice from Jireh: If you think that something or someone is taking you down a path you don’t want to go down, or you know it/they won’t be beneficial to your future, drop it/them. Just let it/them go. It’s going to be hard, but it’s going to be so much better for yourself in the end. And I’ve learned, the longer you wait, the harder it is to let it/them go. I’ve also learned that if you don’t know if you should let it/them go or not, ask yourself how it’s affecting you. Stressed? Frustrated? Emotional? Do you find yourself listening to a sad song that fits the situation on repeat? It’s not healthy for you, and it will affect your other relationships. Life is too short to be sad, depressed, and deep in your emotions. It will just get to you and eat you up. Take the courage to do it. Once you do it, breathe. Then move on

Hopefully I can take my own advice.

Good night,

Jireh
