What a weird couple of months. This summer has been full of change and wild adventures. I have been absent from my blog for most of the summer- except to celebrate Mother’s Day and Father’s Day- Before, I was trying to post every week to reach my goal of 52 posts this year. I am set back on that, but I am back in action and I am going to try to reach the finish line on my goals for the year.
I graduated high school in May and I never thought it would effect me in the ways it has. I was excited and curious about my future- not just for the summer, but for what lies ahead long term. It was only a few weeks ago that I started thinking about what direction I have been heading. My relationship with God has been distant and the people closest to my heart are spread all over the place. So there I was; missing my family, uninterested in the future I was headed toward, and feeling lost for the first time in my life. Maybe it is the way I was raised or my personality, but I don’t find myself in this type of funk very often. I have always known what I want in my life, but this summer, I was at a loss. So what was I supposed to write about? My blog is a platform for my passions- and for a minute there, I lost myself in the bored mindset that was consuming me for far too long.
Now you’re probably saying, “OKAY Sidney, what is the point of all of this?” I am getting there- I promise! I have decided to make a big life change- which I am choosing to keep (mostly) private until all of the details are worked out, but I could not be more excited for the next chapter in my book. All the doors have been opening and I have found interest in the simple things once again!
My heart is full of excitement and curiosity and even though I don’t know what lies ahead, I do know that I am not alone in this journey. Even when I feel like I need to have everything figured out, God tells me to trust him and everything will work out- so that is what I am doing! I am surrounded by the best people to help me stay positive and remember that life is not as serious as I make it out to be. With all that being said…. Look out world!! I am back and ready to take on anything that life throws my way!!
