I’m ready to see where life takes me, what God has in plan, but sometimes… I wish He could show me a little earlier. I know He has it in control, but sometimes it’s hard. I know that sometimes life just gets crazy. School is insane… 19 credits keeps me extremely busy. I haven’t been around a large church function since December. I am hoping that in about a month I can get myself out to see people at a dance, but if my friend isn’t going, I can’t go either. And that is what I think I really need. Some one-on-one time with her.
I’ll figure something out, but I’m going to continue to stay positive. God has a plan through all of these trials and one day, I will understand. But until then, I’m going to stay positive, put everything in God’s hands, wait for His answer (which may just be “not now”), take all the lessons I can out of these trials, and keep moving forward.

I am beautiful. I am me.
Just saw “Wicked” tonight with the family. Check that one off the bucket list! SO AMAZING!
"And now whatever way our story ends, I know you have rewritten mine, by being my friend."
What will this day equate to? I don’t know. But I do know I need to put on a smile, choke back the tears, and continue on with all my homework.
Everyone in their life needs to do what is best for them. Maybe that’s moving out of the house, maybe that’s choosing a college that’s hours away, maybe it’s for the first time in your life putting yourself first knowing that it has to happen. Sometimes we forget what we need when we are wrapped up in other problems. Sometimes we have to step back, look at our own lives and realize that something has to change to fix our own problems.
And sometimes, we are on the other side of it… watching as our sibling or child moves out of the house, or our friend moves hours away to college, or even watching and knowing that a friend of ours must move on… not without us but separate from us.
True friends know that moving out, moving to college, or separation for the time being, is what is best for them. And sure, it’s hard. It can be one of the most emotionally draining and hardest things But the truth is, it’s ok. Because if you truly love them and care for them, you want what’s best for them. And if what’s best for them is hours away, their own house, or separation… that’s ok. Their happiness is more important than having them right there. Love for them is knowing that what is best for them is important.
We shall see what happens… I know things will work out. Keep your chin up… Keep a smile on your face… and keep pushing on, no matter where anything leads, know with God, all things are possible and sometimes things fall apart or change for a reason.
"My wish for you
Is that this life becomes all that you want it to
Your dreams stay big, your worries stay small
You never need to carry more than you can hold
And while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to
I hope you know somebody loves you
And wants the same things too
Yeah, this is my wish.”
I am beautiful. I am me.
You can be the reason some kid gets up and comes to school when his life is rough. You can be. The reason some student ‘keeps on keeping on’ even though her parents are telling her she cant succeed
A quote from my education book
So I’m minding my own business, doing some school things and listening to Pentatonix and I come across the Ring of Fire (featuring Avi Kaplan) by Home Free, the country group that won the Sing Off this past season and then I see I can listen to their entire album they are releasing on Tuesday. So I was like, ehhh lets see what’s going on with them. (One of their songs is “Wake Me Up” so you know, not all of it is country!) I found this… I’m not a country fan by ANY standards AT ALL… but dude… your voice is low!!!! Not many people can sing in Josh Turner’s range… Crazy stuff man…
