I’m not sure if I would describe myself as exhausted right now. I’m certainly close. A long, busy day of work will do that to you. Luckily, I don’t mind long, busy days, and I often like feeling exhausted.

When I feel exhausted, I feel like I accomplished something that day. It’s different from feeling tired; when I feel tired, I feel like I stayed up too late watching Family Guy and eating chips and dip. Exhaustion reflects hard work. Simple tiredness reflects poor choices. One is worth a lot more than the other.

I am not sure what I want to be when I grow up. Maybe I will own a business. Maybe I will be a reporter or a writer. I could probably be a good public speaker. Perhaps I’ll rise through the ranks at a startup and make millions a year. I hope I do not become too distracted from Christ while I figure out my life’s path.

I am giving the sermon on Sunday. I have no idea what I’m going to talk about. I probably won’t know until that morning. Thanks be to God for giving me the gift of improvisation in many aspects of my life.

It’s 21:30, and I’m going to bed.
