I have priorities first.

Guys, I'm A Busy Woman, So If I Make Time For You, Don't Take It For Granted
Lexi Schroeder

When I say I'm a busy person... I'm a busy person.

I'm a junior in college and maintain three jobs while being a full-time student. Don't ask me how, because sometimes I really don't know how I do it either. I am an adult, after all, I have bills and other necessities I need to take care of before other things.

During all this, I've pretty much stayed single. I've had a few flings here and there, but nothing where it felt like the real deal. I've been single for almost a year and in all honesty, it's been a little weird.

This is the longest I've been single in five years... but I do have to say it's been quite a relief. I haven't had to put any of my time into someone else, I get to put it all into my success and my future.

Although being 21 years old comes with a lot of pressure to find someone who I could potentially settle down with, I feel like everywhere I look people my age are moving in together or getting engaged.

Being single during this time of my life has changed my perspective on what I deserve. And I've come to the realization that if someone truly wants to be with me... they'll make time for me and put effort into it as I do if they want something real. There have been countless times where I have put my all into someone and I've gotten nothing in return... and it comes back to haunt me with heartbreak.

I'm a busy woman and that's because I know I'm going to be successful after college and if a guy wants to take advantage of my spare time, I don't want him.

I want someone who is as ambitious as me and understands the concept of how precious time is, especially during a time like this.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
