I recently have been going through a slump. It's the middle of the semester, and summer seems years away. I needed a bit of inspiration to help me get the motivation I need for the rest of the semester and these quotes gave me just that. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong. As long as you have love and inspiration for what you are doing, you will succeed. So many people think they are too old to go back to school, change their career, or start up a new hobby.
This is never true! It's never too late to change your life around for the better. The quicker you bounce back when you fall down, the better. You become stronger when you get up after taking a fall. Each one of us are blessed with so much. As long as you are alive and breathing, you have something to be grateful for.

I feel so empty right now, almost as if my soul has been completely drained from my body. I hope that the Lord forgives me if I've done something that disappointed him. I want to cry out to Him so badly, for help. I wish I could just hug Him. I wish He could just give me a sign, something to tell me that he's got this because I just can't anymore. I don't mean to sound overdramatic but it is how I actually really feel.
It's a horrible feeling that I thought I wouldn't have to feel again over this same issue. Thank you, Brad. What I dont understand is, why the same obstacle over and over again? I thought I was finally going to be able to move forward from the last time. I thought I was finally set free from this problem but then it just circles right back I'm just torn right now.
I cant even think clearly when I'm like this. The issue consumes me all day. It's unbearable. Thanks for your post, amadeus. I have to re-iterate that reading the replies here have been comforting. Please, please continue to keep me in your prayers. I still havent been able to pray directly to God, silently or out loud. Part of me feels ashamed and embarassed to pray because I think he is disappointed, that He wont even listen anymore.
And the other part of me feels confused and angry. It is a mix of feelings and emotions. Lord Jesus, I love you but I am very weak. I am worn out Hi Ophel, Thank you very much for your words and for that scripture.
I will hold onto it. Brad Huber said:. I prayed that God would do what would be best for you spiritually. Unfortunately, sometimes that means He will put obstacles in our path, so that we can learn to better overcome them, for we are meant to be courageous! Captor, Amadeus, Thank you so much. Last night I finally did it. I reached out to Him, cried out my troubles, my worries, and asked for his help. I told him that I couldn't get through this without him.
That I needed him very much. I prayed for those family members who are creating this issue. Ive forgiven them. I prayed that he'd make me a better person, a better Christian.
But for now, I would just take time to figure yourself out, or even date other guys. In all, just do what makes you the happiest. You only get one life. R elationship T alk.

The point of the article was that guys used to ask girls out on real dates, rather than just asking them if they want to hangout and watch Netflix. For women, dating means that they have the opportunity to be made to feel special. First off, asking a girl out on an actual date can be stressful because of the possibility of rejection. I mean, asking somebody on a date is serious business. This means that, even if we want to ask her out, a good chance may never present itself.
Next, men have to plan out the perfect sequence of events and activities so that the lady has a great time. Planning can be extremely stressful because we want this date to be successful so badly. Thanks, I appreciate the help. Some might think that if a man asks a woman out, he should have a plan for what they will do. But is it so wrong for me to ask for a girl's opinion while planning an evening that I want to make sure she enjoys? After asking and planning this special event, the guy has to pay for the whole thing!
But an offer to pay would be nice. We need to be realistic with ourselves. The way guys and girls interact and display their attraction to one another has changed. Dating has evolved. More often than not, ladies, the method will reveal the intentions.
Those are the girls who get the Netflix invite. Those are the girls who I ask to just come over and hangout. A girl with a great personality is worth all the trouble that asking, planning, and paying for a date involves.
The fact that going on real dates is so rare these days should make the girl I do take out feel extra special. Most of the fellas I know feel the same way. Over the years, people have found other, easier ways to achieve the same goals, and conventional dating has become unnecessary. I know women might not view this as their ideal interaction with a man, but some interaction is better than no interaction, right? If, starting today, no girl accepted an invite to just hangout and chill, the guys might step their game up.
I think millennials view dating as something more serious than the generations before us saw it. We can do better in so many ways, and I plan to delve deeper into our fear of commitment and vulnerability in my next article. There is another solution, though: If ladies hate not going on real dates so much, why not start asking us men out on dates?
As we start to embrace the second full week of September, there are some things I'd like to say to the month. Back again so soon? I could swear I just saw you a few months ago. Well anyway, how are you? That's great because I'm over you already. This isn't some breakup sonnet, this isn't some tearful declaration to my love of summer.
This is a direct grievance to your thirty days of filling in between summer at fall. That's right, you are a filler month! I have so many problems with you. First of all, you do in fact, bring an end to the summer season. How dare you! For a summer lover like myself, September is dreadful, the pools and beaches start to close, amusement parks being to open strictly during the weekends.
You push out the warm summer nights and the salt air. You make us say goodbye to sandy toes and the smell of sunscreen. You're all about back to school and putting away that cute white shirt you can't wear until May. You completely kill the summer vibe with little warning. Second, you're more confusing than a college physics course. One day you want to be ninety degrees and beautiful out but all the pools are closed, thanks a lot and the next you want to be sixty-five and raining?
Just why? Don't you know that the school buildings are never cool enough to stand the humidity that's still here? Don't you know we're sliding out of our seats thinking about how we rather be by the water? You make people pull out their fall attire just to put their shorts back on. And not to mention, being cold in the morning and humid in the afternoon? Like wow. What a sick joke! You kick start the holiday season way too early. Pumpkin spiced everything and plaid everywhere?
I'm still enjoying sunglasses and ice cream. You can't pick a temperature but you want to make me excited for the fall season to come? That's not how it works! And now you try to make us excited with the thought of Halloween creeping slowly closer. There is a WHOLE thirty days between your first day and October's first day, I shouldn't be seeing back to school supplies next to Halloween candy.
When you finally start to cool off and change the leaves from green to gold, I couldn't be happier. You are one of the prettiest months, next to October. Your month inspires people to close doors or chapters in their life in order to blossom in the spring. Pulling out my jeans is the highlight of your month, fall fashion begins to take over and the holidays just roll in after you.
You bring us the beginning of football season, bonfires, and nights spent looking at the stars. Although I can't stand your month, there is some enjoyment to it. It is the beginning of October but most of us college students are still feeling the September Struggle. By this time, many of us have had at least one mental breakdown, 3 assignments due in one day, a Netflix show finished and sleep deprivation.
I believe the 'September Struggle' occurs because of one main reason: our professors decide to make everything due in one week during this month. Granted, this is not the case for all but it sure seems like this is the case every year during this month. You always see it coming, but you never end up being fully prepared.
After it's gone, it'll still leave you reeling for a little while, so take time to appreciate being able to breathe. During this month you don't spend countless hours doing homework at first. Then one week it all hits and you suddenly do not have enough time in the day to do all that needs to be accomplished.
Then the 'September Struggle' hits and it hits hard. Next thing you know you'll be walking around struggling to stay awake in class and just trying to get through the week by any means necessary.
However, it's all good cause your classmates next to you are in the same boat as you. Your professors all seem to decide at the same time that they have taught you enough to test you, have you give a presentation, write a paper, and do a group project, all in the same week.
During the first bit, it seems easy to stay on top of everything. You may even be able to sneak some Netflix in. Reward yourself with a new series after you survive September. Once October begins to show things begin to look up. You realize fall break is coming and become re-energized.
You take a Friday afternoon to reorganize your life. You take another Sunday to catch up on all the work you have gotten behind on and all your favorite shows you have missed. You finally find the time to do all of the laundry you have missed between doing homework and curling up in your bed to try to get a few hours of rest before class.
You begin to form a routine and actually stick to it. As September begins to wind down and October begins to show things are beginning to look brighter and more manageable. Just make it to fall break but don't forget to begin study for midterms! Reward yourself for surviving September, but keep your eye on the prize: a decent GPA! And remember, you are not alone during the September Struggle.
Maybe Billy Joel was right, but we can wake everyone up now that September has ended. I did it fam. The ultimate leap that everyone dreams of - I moved to Europe!
And in peak season as well Boy, was I feeling the excitement and my Instagram and Pinterest pages would confirm it. I stayed glued to social platforms pinning every "European Summer Outfit Idea" and "Best Cafe's in Stockholm" that I could find. Soothing myself to sleep each night with countless searches of fashion, food, and home decor the Nordics would offer me. It fed my soul and eased any anxieties that would arise about moving.
It was Mid-June that I embarked on my journey and I'm happy I didn't have to do it solely alone.
