Today marks the first week of 2013 and looking back, I had been sitting in front of my laptop day and night for the past week, without stepping out the house for even a step. Final year project made me stay home instead of joining this church camp which I had planned to go.
I was super panicked few days ago due to all the stressful uni work. Boyfriend is being super nice this week. I know how stressful he is, but he chose to be there 24/7 in the screen just plainly because I need him to be around. I know it might not be helpful at all for him as he hardly able to study with someone around. But the joy is we get to pray pray and pray whenever we get tired and discouraged throughout the day.
I woke up a while ago to know that its a long nap and realised he didnt wake me up. Who knows he was in bed himself wasnt feeling too well, feeling really demotivated and worried. To see him panicked, I realised I really dont know what to do. We prayed together. Actually I am so panicked myself, but at that moment I realised how important it is to stay strong and be there for him.
Many times, we forgot to stay strong for the people around us because sometimes, all they need is someone who is hopeful and encouraging in their midst of despair.
New year resolution? I want to be more joyful, more hopeful and less anxious.
