Tomorrow I will drive the 90 minutes it takes to reach the Big Post Office in Everett, to take the postal workers exam. Am I anxious? A little. Tests, especially 'timed' ones, will do that to a person. I did get the Postal Workers guidebook from the library last week and it has the test in it so you can study and take the test and see how well you do and where you need to study more.
The more I study, the more I realize how long it's been since I've been in school and needed to study for anything!! And I realize my forgetter works a whole lot better than my rememberer. Acck! Well, the bottom line is, I am counting on God to open or close the door. I am doing my part by preparing as best I can and then leave the rest up to Him. If working in a post office is where He wants me, then I will soon find out!
I also have discovered just how good I am at procrastinating. I will allow all sorts of things to distract me from the things I don't want to do. And funny how even some of the things I don't want to do normally, suddenly become much more attractive when contrasted against something even less attractive. Suddenly dishes, laundry and bed making seem SO vital when compared to homework. And all of those things can be dropped down further on the list when I realize I haven't blogged in a few days and I need to get something up!
Like so many things in life.... we get so easily distracted. It is a constant battle for me to keep the better thoughts, the positive ones, the life giving ones, at the forefront. Instead so often it's the negative, life draining thoughts that threaten to consume me. I have to chose to focus on the positive, chose to make the healthy better options be the ones I go with. Chose to put God first no matter what.
