A texting conversation with Lizzy:
Me: What on earth am I doing with my life?
Me: Today I am discouraged by all the waiting.
Me: Can you fix it?
Lizzy: What can you change this week?
Me: Actively praying about my next step, not just when I'm overwhelmed.*
Lizzy: What can you physically do that would make you feel better? Spend an evening at a restaurant with friends, go to Powell's and dream, etc?
Me: Go to the gym. Dreaming I think is a good idea as well. It's weird to think about something was so assuredly going to happen...and then it doesn't.
Lizzy: I thought I was going to marry Jason for sure. So so so glad I was wrong.
Me: Very good point. So much good has come from things I wanted not happening. Maybe this is another one of those times.
Me: Also, I am going to blog our conversation. Is it okay if I include what you said about Jason?
Lizzy: Absolutely. I don't think he reads your blog. :)
Me: Ha. Good point. Some days it's so easy to see that this is part of the plan. Today doesn't feel like one of those days.
Lizzy: I'm exhausted too. Mentally and emotionally
Me: See, you're really who I want to meet up with and have time with this week.
*While I will be actively praying about all of this, prayer being my answer to her question was a total cop-out/BS answer, and Lizzy knew it. Man, I love her.
