Tired…just tired.

Let’s be honest. No matter how laid back you are, you always have that one day where you just can’t focus or even think because you are so overwhelmed at the amount of things you have to do? Well duh, we all have those days. Because we are human. For me, it has been this entire year. With all of my instruments, homework, babysitting, singing, chores, and just sleeping, I find the hours of the day draining faster than the kitchen sink. I have little to no time for my family, reading, or my friends. It really takes a toll after a while. At the beginning of this year I was so confident that I could control my schedule. I was in high school! I was mature enough to handle it all on my own! WRONG. No matter how long I spent organizing my week, how hard I studied, however many hours of piano I played, I always found myself feeling drained. Completely drained. My schedule had caught up to me. I didn’t know what to do. I had no desire to be with my friends, no desire to exercise, nothing. I had completely relied on me. My abilities, my strengths, just me. Bad Aubrey. I didn’t give God even a tiny margin of room. My activities were consuming my life. I am still in the process of simplifying my everyday life. But that comes with a few consequences…I don’t get as much cello or piano practice in as I would like, and sometimes instead of TV nights, I’m in my room writing a speech or doing Biology. But nothing is worth wasting away over. We have one life, and our biggest decision is how to live it. I want to live a life honoring to God. I want to serve him and shine a light to the world. I am just a 14 year old on this crazy ride called life. I have so much to learn still, but I kind of like the idea of getting a headstart!                                                                                                                                                            ❤ Aubrey
