At challenging times, there are times where we believe the lie that the enemy tells us - it can even get instilled in us at a young age like on the playground by those childhood bullies. Then as a result, some of us as we grow older into teenage years actually believe those lies for who we are which as a result can ruin our self confidence and our happiness, as well as our clarity. As for myself, I always knew that I was a different child/teen from everybody else and in my life, so sometimes I wonder why God made me that way?
So I've decided to take "this class" for Christians that talks about topics like hurt, anger, depression and anxiety. I'm praying that I can get the right spiritual tools out of this class that will help me to become happier, realize that I'm not alone and that will help me reach my dreams. And 1 of those things that stuck out to me is that a lot of us who deal with issues can feel angry at God for things. It's like the other day in my Rehabilitation class, we had to watch these video clips on a pretend story of this guy who was pretending to have a spinal cord injury and became paraplegic as a result of it. Then one of the things he says is, "When I first got my spinal cord injury, I was angry at the world (at God), I just couldn't see why that this could happen to me?" •••••••••••••••••••••••
As a result, although we may be angry at God or wonder why these things happen to only us, I think God somehow uses some of these past experiences to help us grow into stronger people, as well as in becoming stronger Christians! Within our pasts, we all have purposes, and I feel that God wants us to understand why we go through things so that one day we can help out other people in need like ourselves. ✨ My prayer for that is, I pray that God can help out people with their situations and to know that they are worthy and are never alone with their struggles! 💖
Hey everyone!! I hope everyone had a happy Thursday. 😊 You know you lovely people, there's really 1 thing I want to add focus on is this, be yourself and don't let anyone ever make you feel bad, ever becuz you are worthy. 💖 Over the years, I have learnt that in some ways high school is a REALLY toxic place. It's like altho some people like me who are shy, struggle kinda with their learning (or are never the smartest in the class) and have big caring hearts secretly try to fit in and get to know others, or some people just don't seem to like us for no reason at all. 😓 It's like this 1 person I used to know back in the day deletee me somewhere because they don't like my sense of humour and my approach to life, or that I'm a really sweet, caring person and who loves God ❤️💞💙 Or like this girl at the bus stop who always seemed to be quiet and secretly depressed, gave me "the death stare." Yes sure, I may have acted a little different back then or was slightly a bit more immature back then, but all in all I'm growing up, and I know in my heart I never truly deserved that and that it has a lot to do with them. All in all, for those are like me, you are WORTHY 🤗 and accept yourself for who you are! 🌺🌺🌺
YAY!!! Finally for once earlier today, Starbucks was actually able to spell my name properly. For a significant series in a row, I've been a Christy, Christie, Christina, Christin, and Kristine. 😂 Although I don't blame them for spelling my name with a "K" as it is slighty shorter and faster to spell, ahaha. All in all, I'm a happy girl. 😊 Iced Pumpkin Spice Latte!
Today I decided to sit up on the 2nd floor of the double decker bus, because why not? 😉 Sure can see lots from high up! The cars look so tiny from the ground ahaha, and a nice view of the newish hockey arena Rogers Place. Can't wait for hockey season to start up again, and hopefully that this season the Oilers make the playoffs ahaha! 😂😂 All in all, I'm starting to become a real city girl for taking a double decker bus now. All in all, I sure love my city! ❤️ #rogersplace#downtownyeg#yeg#yeglove#edmonton#greatview#scenic#almostfall#oilcity#citylife#citygirl#gooilersgo
Happy Sunday all!! :) Today I went to this greenhouse in Edmonton on the northside. I'm not really sure what type of tropical plant this is with the palm leafs although it looks kinda interesting! Never seen a tropical plant before in Alberta until now. I have seen baby palm trees and similar looking plants in Vancouver, BC on the coast, but nothing like this here lol. I don't think that these can even survive northern climates like this ahaha. Totally random… 😂😂😂
Yes, yes. PERFECT!!! That's what I'll bring. I'll bring my flower vase with me to my Wellness-Thru-Leisure class on Thursday which will symbolize who I am (that I enjoy art, and that I'm a bubbly, energized and artistic girl ahaha) My grade 10 and 12 art teacher would be so proud of me 🤗💕 - Yes what recreation therapy students have to do is bring a leisure-based item to Wellness that represents them (ex,, reading book, or soccer ball) and although the vase doesn't really do anything, it will still symbolize who I am as a person. 😂😂😂
There! And now I'm finished my Therapeutic Recreation responses-to-questions ahead of time from the email I got from my prof this morning. There! I feel my notes are fairly pretty bright and colourful for the world of recreation therapy. All set and prepared for Thursday's class! ✨
