“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.” – Nelson Mandela

This week weighing on my heart has been alot about recovery, the struggles, happiness, school and more. I have written much because I’ve been in between studying for finals, hanging with friends and get other stuff done. Yesterday when messaging with one of my friends, she really put things into perspective for me. She made a comment that really stood out to me and seemed like my “aha” moment.
All of a sudden, my life became rather crystal clear. Every day, every struggle, triumph, hurt, heal, happiness, joy, sadness, frustration, every hill and mountain top as well as every valley and canyon. It was as if in that moment all the pieces of the puzzle called life seemed to stitch together in a way that I could understand.
It caught me in awe of just how amazing G-d’s plans are. How He has been here all along through everything and its all part of this divine scheme to bring glory to Him. Its really crazy cool when you think of it!
I am so thankful for everything that has led me to who I am today, because it has been exactly according to plan. Even, when it hasn’t felt the same.
Praise be to Him!!
Studying for finals I’ve realized my brain is a sponge. I barely slide along throughout the semester. Then when finals come I study the most for the class that I need it in. Unfortunately or fortunately I often am able to pass the test. (Yay!) but then when I go to study for any other final afterwards I struggle with focus and retaining info because my mind is stuffed with all the knowledge I crammed into it. Today after my final which I studied all weekend I began to study for my next final. I could not focus. So I went for a run to clear my mind and then have been listening to music. When I finish with this post I will try to study again. Hopefully my sponge has a little more left in it to allow me to do my best on my tests the rest of this week!
I must admit I have always hated reading. I have struggled over the years with book reports, essays and even just opening up those sheets of paper folded together containing such fascination, imagination and truth. Yet in the more recent years I have found myself caught up wanting the latest reads, losing a day to finishing up a classic. For someone who still claims to dislike reading this is beginning to seem strange and unreal. Don’t tell anyone, but I think I’ve changed my mind. (I might like reading…just a bit) 😉
Tis the season of miracles and lots of light. There the typical streets that look like their on fire with lights that nearly make it impossible to walk across their lawn without tripping. However a couple doors down you can see a dark house yet through their front window you see a small amount of light that brightens the whole house. What is it? A classic lone menorah.
It’s in those moments when the world may seem dark keep searching for that little bit of light. It is sure to burn bright and illuminate the night!
Don’t let the light go out!
Currently I write as I sit in a hospital….
Unlike what you may expect I actually was there to pick up some records of past MRIs so that I could bring them to my next doctors appointment. However when I told them the first date the woman helping me insisted that it was not in the records. That’s funny cause I can recollect laying in the MRI machine getting the imaging done. I recall the pain of having to stay still and the constant moaning and groaning of the machine. Quite the morning and here I am still waiting to get the report.
