partial cloudy evenings

Today is my day off. The upside to living in the YMCA community is all the people you see: walking through the dorm floors, in the employee cafeteria, in the lounges, and in the coffee shop. The downside is all the people you see.

It's just hard to get time alone. And not just logistically, although that's definitely part of the challenge. It's also difficult for me to discipline my personality to the point where I can go away from the people. Three times this evening I tried to make an effort to leave the group, or to find my own space and time to pray and think. And all three times I changed my plans to talk to the new person who had just walked by, or the group that wanted me to join them.

People are too enticing for me. :)
