just a morning pick-me-up from my dad

after i spent all morning sitting on the couch.

Get your butt in gear! If you really want to get a job, get busy, “Your days of idleness are over.” You say, “But there’s nothing to do.” Nonsense, there’s alway something to do. “There’s no excuse for doing nothing.” “The only thing worse than doing nothing is watching TV, at least if you’re doing nothing you might be thinking.” Get in the habit of getting up and eating breakfast and doing the work that’s in front of you, every day. Staying up at night tends to depression. “Despair is a poor excuse for not having a sense of purpose, and having a sense of purpose is the best way to avoid despair.” Naturally the work for the day might be looking for a job. If you’ve done everything you can think of, that could possibly need doing, start studying. Yes, this is work too. There’s no time to waste, “There’s only two kinds of people, those who study and those who watch television.” Improve yourself every way. Be prepared. If you think you can sit around until some wonderful, perfect job comes along, forget it. Those days are over. Besides, what you may imagine to be the perfect job is probably no such thing. It is likely just a miserable way to make money while you abandon your family.

(and the picture is of my thai iced tea.  i was stirring my heart shaped ice cubes and thought, “isn’t this cute?”  it’s still not as completely satisfying as a bubble tea, but i don’t have a jar of gelatinous tapioca snot wads hanging out in my fridge, so a girl has to make do.)

    Ask and it shall be given to you, SEEK and you shall find,knock and door shall be open. I think so many times I ask and think it’s just going to fall into my lap, but what God really waits is for us to believe and that if we try harder enough and search for him we will find something amazing. So as much as i don’t want to I’m searching for a job. So this one hits home for me. Thanks

    my kick in the pants is to do the work god sets in front of me every day, cheerfully. “he who is faithful in a very little thing is also faithful in much.” but at least i’m not you, because that’s an awful lot of work. 😉
