Ah, Spring Break. The time of year where your motivation to end the semester on a high note has been pretty much demolished by midterms and your need for a few days off pretty much skyrockets until the second that you pack your car up to head to your Spring Break destination, A.K.A. home. While you probably can't afford to be headed to a beach to party in the sun, going back to your same old hometown won't be so bad, since you're definitely bound to have some kind of fun with your friends or family.

If you're like most people, there's probably at least one small part of you that doesn't want to run into some people that you know from your past. While you are driving through town as you arrive, you'll probably see all of them at once because that's just how life works sometimes. It'll be hard to see them, but take comfort in the fact that you're away at school accomplishing your goals.

As soon as you get back, you'll definitely get in touch with your friends from home to catch up on new happenings as soon as you realize how different it is to be under your parents roof verses your college dorm once again.

Chances are, once you see pictures of your friends at the beach with their somehow-already-ready-summer bodies, you'll feel the need to hit the gym while you're at home, which may or may not go your way the first couple of times.

Living with your siblings again will be a happy reuniting at first, but after a couple of days, the bickering will start once again and your parents will be forced to get you all to work things out.

You might be able to stay on a decent diet at school, but most of us freshmen have gained the infamous "freshman fifteen", and are beginning to notice it. Oh well, at least you wear those extra few pounds with class.

If you go to a school that's more than a thirty minute drive from home, you'll probably feel a strong need to overpack because you just don't know what you'll need for the week ahead. Once you get to unpacking, though, something will show up in your suitcase that will make you question why you brought it home with you.

Now that you're back under your home roof, you can sing in the shower without being ridiculed by your hall mates or your suite mates, your family has to love you.

And eventually, the time will come to once again load up your car and head back to school. While you've missed your friends and your freedom, you miss home and your dog too, it's just a sad situation all around. On the bright side, summer (and doing your laundry for free) is just around the corner.

We all have those days where we let the negative thoughts that we're "not good enough," "not pretty enough" or "not smart enough" invade our minds. It's easy to lose hope in these situations and to feel like it would be easier to just give up. However, the Bible reminds us that these things that we tell ourselves are not true and it gives us the affirmations that we need. Let these verses give you the power and motivation that you're lacking.

"She is clothed with strength and dignity and she laughs without fear of the future."

"God is within her, she will not fall."

"Blessed is she who believed that the Lord would fulfill His promises to her."

4. Proverbs 31:17

"She is energetic and strong, a hard worker."

5. Psalm 28:7

10. Proverbs 31:26

"When she speaks, her words are wise, and she gives instructions with kindness."

"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made."

12. 1 Peter 3:3-4

"Don't be concerned about the outward beauty of fancy hairstyles, expensive jewelry, or beautiful clothes. You should clothe yourselves instead with the beauty that comes from within, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is so precious to God."

13. Colossians 2:10

"And in Christ you have been brought to fullness."

14. 2 Timothy 1:7

The Power Of Journaling

Slowing down in a fast pace world.

94

In a world where everything is moving so fast pace, I have found comfort in taking small moments to reflect on the blurring images around me. I have always loved to journal, but recently I have found a system that works very well for me.

One habit that I have newly formed is creating a section in my journal that I like to call "Get Out of My Head." Life moves very fast and sometimes my thoughts can't keep up. This causes stress, anxiety, sadness and even the feeling of loneliness. I have created this section in my journal to be a safe place where I can just scribble down whatever is taking over my head, but there is a trick.

Like I stated previously, I have always loved to journal, but I never found ultimate comfort in it because I would go back and read what I wanted to remove from my mind. This was causing me to reexperience what I didn't want to. I highly suggest having a place in your journal that is essentially a flame for all th4e thoughts you want to rid of.

On the contrary, have a section in your journal where you love to look. I try and fill this section with happy thoughts, quotes, verses, and gratitude. This makes journaling and reading your entries something to look forward to, rather than not.

In conclusion, journaling is unique for everyone and it takes some time to figure out exactly the right way. But once you discover the safe place that journaling can be, it can change your life forever.
