Living intentionally is something I've had to learn these past few days. I've always had to remind myself that if I truly wanted to please God, I should, as often, practice what it meant to fully die to self and live in the all-sustaining power of Christ alone.
Hello, everyone! So many things have been happening in my life lately. Everyday, I am learning how to live with the intention of making every God-given day count. I purposely cut short the time I use social media and I'm so happy to say that when we step away from the so-called busyness in life, it's where we can draw closer to God and He to us.
My mom has started working on her temporary job two weeks ago making almost all of her tasks as a housewife fall into my arms. The adjustment's very difficult as my mom hasn't been working since '09. I do help whenever I can, but I never cooked for our family full time. I do ironing, but my mom used to do the laundry. I never thought of what to eat every meal and what went missing at home. What needs to be bought and what time do we feed the pets we have. I've never been used to trimming our cat's fur balls either. There are so many uncomfortable moments that leaves me so anxious every single day. With my dad busy on his business and my sisters on their daily activities, being a stay-at-home 20 year old can surely suck at times. I don't know if you can relate, but I've never found myself this busy like ever before. I honestly feel like a mother more than a sister or a daughter when mom's not around. And take note, I've had to also squeeze in time for studying. People think doing house chores are so easy, but think twice. With the extreme summer heat across the country, I doubt if you'll ever want to do something sweat-producing, haha! This Sunday, I am just feeling so lazy like the cat above. We just had our lunch & so I got this little time to write before I start to collect dry clothes, iron and/or cook for dinner tonight. *smirks* Here's another Sunday Currently entry...
I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough.
