Stuff I've been stressing out that's over now:
- Classes/projects/papers: All I have left is three finals and then I'm done for the semester! This is SUCH a relief to be finally done.
- Christmas presents: Yesterday I finally decided on a Christmas present for my dear boyfriend. Finding the perfect gift for him has been a serious source of stress lately. BUT it's over now. All I have left to buy are very minor gifts!
Something else that's inspired me lately is this post over at Rabbit, Write. Really, everything she writes is like an epiphany for me, but I really enjoyed this one. It's about enjoying your body in a non-sexual way. I'm all about loving your body, but I will admit that's usually done in a sexual context. It was really interesting to think about my body as this awesome machine that is so efficient at getting things done.
Last night, I stared at my face in the mirror for like five minutes wondering what I'm going to look like when I'm old and wrinkly. Not in a worried about getting old way, but in an "I'm still going to be beautiful when I'm an old fart" way.
So the moral of the story is: everything that's awful now will eventually go away. And your body is awesome.
