Ride the Roller Coaster

Letter to 24, from 23

I sit on the eve of meeting you, and I’m at a loss for words. Speechless to the growth and knowledge and pain and triumph that has happened leading up to you. There is not enough time in the world to explain to you all that has happened this past year- but maybe there is to tell you a bit of what I’ve learned. 

Living free and light- Matthew 11:28-30

Freely + Lightly

I don’t know about you, but before my feet have even touched the floor on a new day, I’ve already disqualified myself from deserving it. I wake up to immediate disappointment- a thought comes rushing in of a mistake made yesterday, or something at work not going right, or an issue with a friend that I haven’t taken steps to resolve yet.

Passion // Potential // Pursuit

In college, I had an existential crisis. It’s easy to say now, but it really rocked me for a few months. I had chosen what I knew was a safe career path, and I knew I would be making great money. Fall semester of my senior (fourth) year, I was sitting in my Tuesday 2PM class and was struck by the thought, “You’ll never be happy doing this the rest of your life.”
