dirty and left out
Life is all about choices. I need to make a few of my own. God has really been pulling on my heart to be a better person. To let go of some things. Some hurts, some disappointments. So here's where my heart is...
I have been doing a lot of thinking lately. I am 27 right now. In less than three years, I will be 30. And I am excited. I feel that each choice I make today, has a huge stamping on my tomorrow. In the next three years, I expect big changes. I want to make them like a real adult. Like the woman God has chosen me to be. I have been angry, I have been sad, I have been motivated, and I have been beat down. But we all have, haven't we. Whenever I start to feel too down or a little overwhelmed, I like to get into my car. And at each stop light, I look over at the person next to me. And think about what they may be going through at that same moment. It helps to ground me. It reminds me that I am not the only person in the World. Others all around me are going through the same trials, the same daily testing. It's honestly one of my favorite things to do.
So here comes the next step. I am going to make my dreams come true. On my own. Just like I always have. I've spent the last few weeks whining and complaining about being tired, and I forgot about who I really was. Everything I have already been through to get to where I am at.
At 27 I will be a business owner. The family business is transferring over to my name. It's a little daunting, but I am happy to take on the responsibility. At 27, I will run my own little online business. Crafting for others is really starting to bring me an amazing amount of joy. At 27, I will start working on my cookbook project. I can't wait to share the food I love with the people I love. Everyone.
I have been inspired by some pretty awesome women lately, and I thank you for your thoughts and encouraging words. For becoming my friends. And for making me believe in making your dreams come true.
I hope we all follow our hearts, and I hope you share your journey with me.
Let's start by smiling. Every day. As soon as we wake up. Because we're just THAT lucky♥
love love love,
