This blog post is three weeks late, and I really don’t have a valid reason to justify it other than laziness and business. The lateness of my writing has been due to a combination of being too tired at night to write and constantly running around doing something fun and exciting. Still it’s no reason for me to stop or even slow down. The purpose of this blog is for me to remember each and every adventure that has come my way.
So let’s talk about laziness, but actually it’s not really about laziness. Laziness to write would be better described as too exhausted to write. No more middle of the day naps that I used to live by, but now it’s long days being out and about. Everyday I wake up for work and spend the whole day out only returning late at night. By that time I’m sweaty, my eyes can barely keep themselves open, and all I want to do is hop into bed.
Given it’s completely my fault, because I don’t know how to say no. Whenever a friend invites me to do something or there is a church event going on, I’m there. In my eyes, I’ve gone above and beyond what was asked of me. Now I’m not boasting or being self absorbed, but I’m proud of what I’ve been able to be a part of. I cherish the role I play in children’s ministry, and I find joy in being a youth group leader. Yes I could probably watch less movies with friends, but weeks after this is all over I’m not going to tell stories about how I went to bed early, but I’m going to remember all the times we argued over Lilikoi juice or invented new ways of playing scrabble.
I’m ok with the laziness and the lack of writing if it means that I’m doing something else worthwhile. I’m ok if my blog posts are late and the dates are all chunked together if it means that all those days I should have been writing were spent adventuring. I love to share my adventures, but sometimes those adventures are way more fun being lived than written.
