Laboring in Vain and Beating Myself Up

Strive - Verb. 1. make great efforts to achieve or obtain something 2. struggle or fight

I strive...a lot. A LOT.

I wear myself out!

I am the youngest sibling in my family...seven years younger than my older sister, actually. While you may think that makes me the "baby" and also an "accident", you're wrong on both accounts...well, kinda;) My mom prayed to have precisely 2 boys and 2 girls and didn't give up until God answered. No accident here, thank you very much! :) Also, according to "The Birth Order Book" I had to read in college, while I'm technically the "baby" of my family, I don't really act like the baby since my closest sibling is so much older than me. Nope, I'm more like an only child.

So there you have it.

As an "only child", I'm an overachiever by my very nature.

And I hate it.


For His glory,
