Happy December & Thursday! Though I'm glad that this week is over, I'm feeling rather overwhelmed by the fact that I have two more weeks - finals week included - before Christmas break. In addition, it seems crazy but - this school year is already almost half way over. I'm excited for my future, but I have all these fears. Recently when I was talking to an acquaintance of mine about being frustrated and nervous, and she said something that I think I just needed to hear... "Guess what? It will all be okay in the end." This phrase stuck with me. I know I've heard that before, and I know that I know what she said was true... but it really reminded me that yeah, things are going to be okay.

Things can be difficult and stressful, but at the end, I know that I'm going to get through it. I think it takes trusting in the Lord to have a plan for you, but sometimes it's hard to let go of the fact that you aren't always in charge of how things will work out in your life. I know that that is a challenging thing for me.

Anyway, a quick note about my outfit - I wore this last Sunday. The dress, purse, and heels were all purchased on black Friday. :) I think the shoes were half off (so $3!) but that was the only deal I got. Still, it was all pretty inexpensive. ;) Have a nice night, loves - tomorrow is Friday!! xx
