You know, I have been journaling for over 10 years, you would think that I would know where to start one of these. But alas, I do not and still I am stuck with an introduction like this. But that’s okay because usually once you get started, it’s not so difficult to create sense of the chaos and bring everything rolling in the direction that you want.
Which is honestly what I’ve been doing in my life for the past couple of years now. If there was nothing else I knew about my life growing up, it was that I didn’t have a freakin’ clue where I was going with it. You may ask now, “Do we ever, really?” And yes, we do actually, I can’t tell you how many Christ-following young people that I have met that know exactly where they’re going with their lives. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I won’t go further into that joke as to risk a lot of good people being very upset with me. It’s okay, I trust those of you who have voices speaking to them.
Personally, however, I have enjoyed not knowing where I’m going sometimes…most of the time. It has been stressful and scary at times, but it’s all worth it when you get to come home to someone you love and have a hot cup of tea knowing that all your bills are paid and you have a warm bed of your own in the next room.
It’s been a pretty intense year for me. On September 19 of last year, I hit the road to a small town called Findlay Ohio.
One year and two jobs later, Sam and I are in our own apartment with a paid off lease and gears to the future because as of the beginning of the year, we will be headed back to my beautiful state of Tennessee and taking our next step forward in life. It’s not going to be an easy road and our plans are still changing and evolving every day, but every day brings those plans closer.
In the mean time, my photography is getting back into gear, I have a Christmas to plan for, and our life is fairly relaxing. Now is the time to breathe while we prepare to hold our breath and take that next jump. It’s honestly pretty exciting.
Not too shabby for someone who has no clue where they’re going with their life.
