Currently // July


READING · I'm still trying to make my way through When I'm Gone. I'll admit that I haven't been doing much reading lately as I'm still struggling with consistency, but I'd like to try to read at least 30 minutes a day like I was during the first of the year.

WATCHING · Quickly approaching season 2 of 12 Monkeys on Hulu+ (it's so dang good, guys). Besides that, my mama and I have been on a LMN kick lately. We've just been setting them up to record as they come on, and then binging on them when we have a couple hours to spare. I'm thinking of compiling a list of my favorite ones so far. There are just so many.

LISTENING TO · Bethel's latest praise and worship CD Have It All, as well as Big Daddy Weave's song The Lion and the Lamb (as shared below). Bethel actually included this song on their CD, but I was listening to his version beforehand (I love both).

DISCOVERING · Just how far I've come over the last few years. Things that used to bother me don't anymore. I'm not as fearful as I used to be. I'm able to laugh at myself whenever I make a mistake. It's a nice feeling, knowing that I've used my experiences as building blocks to help grow. It's crazy to look back at who I used to be verses who I am now.

PLANNING · Our next trip to Disney! August 12th marks the recommencement of our annual passes. So long, summer blackout dates! G starts classes on August 15th, so we'll have to plan a trip right before that. We'll probably head to Magic Kingdom.

CRAVING · All the unhealthy foods. Just give me all of the tacos, nachos, pastas, and pizzas. Haha. I've actually been doing very well with eating better this month, but the cravings are no joke. Tomorrow is cheat day. I'm not planning on going crazy since I don't want to jack up my progress, but I will enjoy not counting calories! I'd be happy with a cocktail + a cheeseburger.

WISHING · That I didn't have to go to work tonight. Don't get me wrong, I love my job (for the most part). I woke up not feeling well this morning, and this rainstorm is making me want to curl up on the couch for the rest of the day. Oh, well. I'll suck it up!

FEELING · Freaking relieved! On my last currently post, I shared that I may have to turn in my two weeks notice to Target come mid-August. After much consideration, I asked if it would be possible to change my availability to one day a week / weekends only. I was happy to see that my request was approved. I know that one day won't bring in much more money, but any extra money will help at this point. And, honestly, it was more about getting out of the house + being around my coworkers than making money. Since our family business is run from home, I would have started to feel cooped up had I decided to quit Target.

PRAYING FOR · For one of my best friends, Victoria. She's been battling cancer for over a year now, and she just spent the last week in the hospital. I'm happy she's home now, but we've been pressing in even harder for her healing. When she was first diagnosed last July, I created a GoFundMe account to help cover her being out of work + medical expenses. It's still open, if anyone feels led to donate. If you cannot donate for whatever reason, it would mean a lot if you shared the link.
