Today was pretty chill. Except for all the money I spent on winter clothes. Tj Maxx and Ross didn’t have much, so I ended up having to go to Sport Chalet and spent 180 bucks. It wasn’t al mine, and it wasn’t all clothes.. but still.. Other than my car and food, I realize I don’t spend much money on myself.
I went to City of Industry today to discuss my rent in Thousand Oaks with my landlord. This lady is so high class she wants me to have a broker. The talk with her was so stressful because she basically wanted someone to just be in the middle of our talk so we can tell him to tell him to tell her blah blah.. It turned out ok.
In college titus today Shawn brought up the role of parents, and how we as young adults see them. Theres the “My parents are my hero” phase, when you’re young and don’t know much about the world.. Then the “I hate my parents, they suck, and they’re lame, and don’t know anything” phase.. Then theres the part where “I’m kinda in their shoes now” phase, and you realize life is hard, and they’re only human.
He brought up a question that he asked everyone before we left… “How can you show your parents grace this week?” Mercy is not getting what you deserve. Grace on the other hand is getting what you don’t deserve. I never even think about my parents when it comes to going out at night or having a good time. I think of my friends… But I guess this week I’ll try and do that. Have a good time with them some place instead.
Tomorrow is Shawn Clarks bachelor party weekend! I’m hyped! I’m gonna be late, but it’s ok.
Thanks for today. I had a lot of fun running around town. Titus today was great. It cut me deep in regards to my relationship with my parents. My eyes have been opened and I got to see myself in the mirror.. I want the strength to be able to show them love in the areas they see I’m lacking. And bring about joy in our hearts in the process. Thank you for my parents, and family. Thanks for my friends. You’ve put me in such a great place. I really appreciate you. Goodnight!
