Day 77 : Countdown #2nd Day

It's the last day of the month, and the last month before -BER months. Today is also my 2nd to the last day of my birthday countdown.

I can't believe I'm turning twenty-one in 26-27 hours! I feel as if a part of me hasn't changed in a year, yet there's also this part of me that has, recently. Maturity really isn't measured by age, nor is experience. There is also this part of our being that we can never change, because it has been instilled in us already. 

Today was better than what I expected, and it went by so fast! 

I did not plan sleeping for 3 hours only this morning, and I also didn't plan accompanying Nathalie to her dentist. I was supposed to do the laundry and probably hang out at Robinson's Magnolia in the evening but God had better plans. . . I spent the last day of August with a little escape from reality in a place I haven't been to in a long time. Yes, Starbucks, that is. It always feels like home, but I guess Starbucks Taft and Technohub are irreplaceable in my heart, so is Moonleaf and Serenitea. See, they come in pairs - different set ups & baristas, different strengths & prices, yet perfectly awesome!Yep, pairs. Two is better than one, in this case. 

Today I got a little more excited for the coming weeks. Though circumstances tell me that I should not keep my hopes too high, I choose to just trust in the Lord for His plans that are always, always better than mine. I choose to let Him be in control of everything, and i'd just simply control my 'thoughts' instead. Our thoughts affect how we feel, and more often than not, how we feel affects what we do and/or say. 
and just right now, more than an hour since I started writing this post, something just got in the way. Yes, unexpectedly again this time. Just when we thought we could end the day happy, boom! One simple story lead to another, and to another, and to another. . . . . . . . . . . . . boom! I hate it when something / someone gets in the way. But the truth is, it WILL only, IF YOU LET IT. period. 

As I end this post, I'll let go of that something tonight, and completely surrender it to Him. He is bigger than my problems, bigger than my pain.

I want and will start my month happy through God's grace. I deserve it.

Hello, September... in 25 minutes :)
