Felt cool, but I was mad warm. Furthermore, my faith has been challenged. Never have I had to check my heart and understanding of what I knew as truth then I’ve had to now. Meeting and engaging with so many different viewpoints with my understanding of God’s word and person has been a tough test. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My issues with timing could’ve been killer. I’ve yet to gain mastery over this beast and I know it can and might catch up to me if I don’t right the ship soon. This ONE pray for a G. Lol, it didn’t kill me this semester but probably should’ve, and my cohort made sure I knew it. Jerks they were. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I think I may have some form of body dysmorphia amongst other “perceived” health problems. Given my diet and fitness level have suffered this semester, I realize that I haven’t really been satisfied with how my body looks and feels since my teen years. But the reality is, I actually “look good?” I just haven’t felt it in a while. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve become a little more cynical I think, maybe more apathetic or desensitized. As a journalist, I’m supposed to work through disasters and injustices and get my job done. I’ve kind had to soak in all the crap going on in our country and the world, and have an opinion about things that I’d rather not. Also, I’m just generally more cranky because of my sleep life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sharing ‘lowlights’ are cool because no one “asks” for them. No one else “needs them.” But they’re so much more common then the highlights we post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At the end of this, there’s three things you ought to know: 1 ) IG ain’t paying me...yet. 2 ) God’s real good to me, and to you, and 3 ) these lows are apart of a beautifully woven story, and I love how He’s writing it. Wouldn’t change a thing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, time to hibernate.
