What do you do when you find yourself in a place you've never been before (physically, emotionally, mentally)? According to the Encyclopedia of Adrianne you make yourself so busy and so tired that you contract Mono for the second time in your life... but that's not a real answer (or a healthy one for that matter). Now then, let it be known - I'm ONLY speaking from my personal experience when I say this: don't take yourself too seriously. My Dad told me a while back (paraphrasing), "Don't let your mind run away with you. People aren't nearly as concerned with your life as you think they are". (As a girl who is CONSTANTLY plagued with fear of what others are thinking, I have to try and believe this is true - if for no other reason, just for my own sanity). It's hard living in a very small town where everyone knows everything about you. So, what do you do? Do you hide in your tiny house with your cat? Do you bury yourself in so much work, and so many projects that you can't see straight? Do you manage your time in such a way that you can't be reached? Those have been my tactics, and as far as i can tell, none of that helps. The only option you have is to move forward with the strength of Wonder Woman. Forget the past. Move forward, and know that God has more in store for you than you EVER imagined. He has more in store for you than you're even ready to take on! Now THAT is an awesome feeling! Once you acknowledge that He has an amazing plan for you, all kinds of crazy doors will open.
