Yeah.... so, for me right now my financial situation isn't what I want it to be. It's to the point where it is what I focus much of my thought towards because everything you want to do takes money. I'm so sick of being broke and discussing it that I want to scream. So, I need to focus my energy on something else. Some people focus on vegetable gardens, others Farmville, and still others focus on collecting buttons. I know we are to put our focus on Jesus, this isn't about that, this is something that I can tangibly do when the need to obsess over this brokenness gets to be too much.
So, I 've decided to focus on... my nails. Vain perhaps, but they are something that are always with me (at least I would hope so!), and they are a visual reminder to quit focusing on the bad stuff. On the other hand I have the worst nails possible. And, okay, a BIG confession I like to bite my nails. That's right, bite. I feel no shame and I feel no guilt, for the record. So, perhaps if I focus on keeping my nails pretty, and maybe one day longer than they currently are I can accomplish two goals: quit focusing on this hard time in my life and have pretty nails when it gets better.
I will get a picture of my nails so you see I'm not joking in how bad they are, and I will begin a goal.
I just want to say if you too are going through a rough time that I'm there with you and I pray we all get through this better than expected.
PS: I used to love this song and I still play it occasionally when I'm feeling kinda low and it does make me feel better:
