Ahhh!!! I LOVE ORTHODOXY!!! And I am finding it just so hard to not skip around town singing, "Christos Anesti!" I'm in the middle of law school exams, but I don't think I've been this content in life since... I dunno, maybe age 11. It's not easy being the only person in my family and among my classmates who is interested in Orthodoxy, and I'm afraid I've been a little overzealous with some of those closest to me. It's counter-intuitive not to sing and dance loudly in the streets, but I know that self-discipline is also a virtue and something I tend to struggle with.
Please pray for me to still this beating heart, slow down, and think more of other people's feelings. Please pray that I remember (even though I don't want to) that the world around me is not as fascinated with Orthodoxy as the people on these forums. And please pray that I can remain patient on the path to be an official catechumen.
