'Tis Life


Hey guys,

I usually like to keep my posts upbeat but....we all need to rant one in a while I guess. 
As you may have noted on my sidebar I'm not blogging or really getting on the computer for anything  other than school. It's finals week and I have two ballet rehearsals plus two shows I'm so nervous about. 

Also, I've noticed I'm just so irritated and fed up with...people. I'm arguing constantly and getting irritated by little annoying things my siblings do. I suppose that stress can really bring out the worst in people.

I'm also just worried about....growing...up. People don't treat my like the little girl I used to be. I'm uncomfortable. It's awkward talking about highschool when you're standing there covered in dirt and adorned with bruises from playing soccer. Being a teen is really weird. Not a child, but not an adult. Blimey. What's a person to do?

I could go on an on-but it wouldn't help me now, would it?

We're always going to have a time in our lives where we're like darn, this is just torture. How am I going to survive... 

But something that helps me is knowing God wants you to be happy, no matter what. He has a plan for you.

Like so.

"Ahh, that Kathryn seems to be a regular terror right now. I simply must give her some graces and help to get through all this!"

Okay, maybe not totally like that but you get the gist. 

So, no matter what happens, where you go, what you do, God will love you.

And there is always.

Always.


Sunshine behind the clouds.

Okay, I apologize for an annoying rant and cheesy lecture, but that's how I work. When I write my thoughts out on paper(erm...or screen), I feel better. Advising others helps myself. : ) *

Soooo how's life with you all? Anything new? Do you have any favorite encouraging quotes or Bible verses to share?

*Then there is the rather horrible and greatly used side of me which screams "SUCK IT UPPPPP"

  1. Aww, it's ok. I rant on my blog too. I hope you do well in your shows and in highschool. I am feeling that way too right now. I don't want to grow up either, it's so fun being a kid. You can enjoy the little things in life, ya know? Anyway hope you do well in highschool, and at your shows! I also hope you do well for finals! It must be so scary! Good luck!

  2. Growing up suuuuucks. Everyone wants to know what you want to do when you grow up and you have to just say "microbiologist" because it sounds complicated an high paying, but really you just want to be done talking. Then again, maybe it's not that big of a deal. My dad still wonders what he will be when he "grows up", even though he's been an elementary school teacher for way longer than I've been alive.
    But then there's the thought of college. I don't even want to go there-too stressful to think about.

    But yeah. Things will probably turn out ok. I try to keep myself in a mindset where I can see that life has ups and downs. Because most of the time it seems that if one thing goes wrong then the rest of your life is bad, or if you have a good day you feel like things will be awesome forever. But neither of those are true, So I try very hard to look at the big picture. And whether there's some dude in the sky planning my future for me or if I'm just bumbling through life hoping I don't screw up, I remember that there's sunshine behind the clouds, just like you said.

  3. Haha, for the longest time I say "marine biologist!" (pretty much my whole life)

    Thanks for your comment. : )

  4. Nah, don't worry, we all have to rant every once and a while. 'Tis life, as you said. xD
    But really, I relate to the growing up thing so much right now. I'm at such a weird stage in my life where people expect me to be grown up and all ready for my life ahead of me and all I want to do is hide under a blanket and watch Disney movies with a pile of stuffed animals like I used to. But everything will turn out okay. Of course, there's a plan for each of us; not being able to see what's over the hill doesn't mean there isn't something great for you on the other side. We just have to wait, I guess.

    GOOD LUCK WITH FINALS WEEK I'M GOING THROUGH THE SAME THING RIGHT NOW, WE CAN BOTH GET THROUGH THIS. And good luck with your shows, too, I'm sure you'll do wonderful!! ^_^
    (And also I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels better and lifts her spirits by advising others. I'll never understand what's so comforting about that)

  5. Seriously, this is such a hard time in life for everyone!! I've had a pretty hard year myself and I know what it feels like to have the "growing up" issue- for heavens sake, I collect dolls, My Little Ponies, cosplay as princesses regularly, and openly accept that Peter Pan is one of my heroes. But trust me, once you find a balance, it will be much better. And you're already on the right track with the idea of "God loves you no matter what." He really does. Just trust in Him and look for the sunshine.

  6. I hate growing up, too. I'm going to be a sophomore in the fall and I'm like, "Wait, seriously? I need time to calm down." It's annoying too, especially with all of these expectations and responsibilities you are supposed to fufill-- I'm taking classes. Only juniors and seniors are allowed to take next year. Urgh. I really hope finals go well for you. Afterwards, it's nice to just take time to rest and not really have to think, you know? Finals were last week, for me, and my head is still not mentally recovered.

    I get fed up with people too, for the smallest things, but I try so hard not to snap back and people and go all I'M A FIREBREATHING DRAGON AND I WILL BREATHE FIRE mode. Stress has increased over the years. You look at the responsibilities from about, say, 50 years ago, and it's causes less stress if you had to compare it to today. What's up with that? Don't worry though; like you said, He has a plan for us, and gladly, you aren't the only one fighting this battle. ^.^

    xoxo Morning

  7. I loved this post so so so much <3 Ranting? I love ranting. It's the best...one of the best...ways to let go of stress. Reading this post was great...not like for you, but that someone can relate to me too. God is so awesome, and that it is the best thing ever. If it weren't for Him, I wouldn't be anywhere. At all. Every morning, when faced with the {somewhat} horrible prospect of facing a whole new day, that's when God's love is the only thing that propels me through the day. There are so many crazy awesome verses in the Bible that I love. Basically all of Psalms, and some verses in Isaiah and Jeremiah? Woah.... "For I know the plans I have for you, not to harm you, but to prosper you" or something like that.... but yeah. God's there. Always. :)
    And also, music really helps.
