For the past two years, I’ve told people that I’m “almost done with school” or “hopefully graduating.” Whenever I said either of those things, my voice was tinged with excitement and restlessness, despite the fact that my graduation kept getting pushed back further and further. Now that I’m actually (for real this time) about to graduate, I almost find myself dreading my last day of classes.
First off, I would like to apologize for the lack of photos in this post – I’ve had a bit of a hectic week, and didn’t get a chance to take very many. This week, I had to get back into the swing of things after taking all of last week off and spending time at home. But once I got back, I hit the ground sprinting in terms of reconnecting myself with spirituality and focusing on what God has planned for me.
This past week at home allowed me to really take time to rest and take in everything happening around me without the pressures and distractions of work and school. It dawned on me earlier this week that this is the first time in a really long time that I finally feel like I can breathe and not have to worry about things like trying to find a job or complete an assignment for school. I explain everything in this week’s How Wow Pow Chow.
In an attempt to try and update this on a regular basis, I’ve decided to begin posting weekly blogs where I can reflect on things that have happened over that week. It can get really easy to slip into the routine of things so much that you forget to stop, look around, and take in every ounce of goodness that’s occurring around you. Especially with the events that have been going on around the world surrounding violence, terrorism, and overall negativity, I figure these posts will inevitably be a great way to remember the good things that happen as well.
The idea behind “How Wow Pow Chow” came from an ice breaker that I was introduced to within my Cru community. It was designed to get a group of people in the mindset to talk about spirituality, and also serve as a reminder that God is always working behind the scenes in your life, whether you realize it or not. So in these weekly blog posts, I will acknowledge these topics:
- HOW: How has God been working on your life this week?
- WOW: What is something really great that has happened this week?
- POW: What is something that happened this week that may have not been the greatest?
- CHOW: Any interesting/note-worthy food you’ve eaten this week?
Without further adieu, here begins the “How Wow Pow Chow” series on this blog.
