I often find it easy to be thankful for simple things. For example, today when I went into one of my classes that is typically lecture style. We usually go in and sit in the same seats and try to listen to what my teacher is reading off of her powerpoint. I often get distracted after a while because the class is an hour and 20 minutes long. It can sometimes be very boring.
But not today folks. I went in the classroom and the chairs were all in a circle. We developed our groups for a group project, did a fun exercise with a hula hoop, and then created an extra credit project out of LEGOS. Yes, like the colorful blocks one plays with as a kid. I can't tell you the last time I played with legos, but wow it was actually kind of fun going to that class.
It seemed like in high school we did something different every day, 5 days a week. But here at college things can get a tad boring. I so admire teachers that make it a point to change up the classroom environment. Makes me thankful to go to class.
Let's say life feels boring to you. I encourage you to change it up! Add a little color, take a different way to work, rearrange your closet, etc. Changing things up can be scary, but when we are in control of that change it can kind of be fun. Think about it as you go into this week!!
I have been feeling very overwhelmed because I have 1000 things going with Dad's Weekend this weekend (I am in charge) and school and everything else. Feel free to lift me up in your prayer requests! I would so appreciate that!
Here's to happily changing up life. It can put a smile on your face, which FYI, never hurts anyone!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A student at Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
