Hey there strangers!
Welcome back.. I guess I should be welcoming myself back? It's been over a month since my last blog. There are a few reasons for this that I will share with you later. My blog will be changing soon in appearance as well as content. I have so much to share with you all, but it will have to wait. Today I want to just share life with you all, and maybe you won't fall asleep from boredom! And if you do, enjoy your nap!
Have I mentioned that today is my birthday? Yep.. I'm almost thirty. Well I'm actually 23, which is almost 25, and rounded up that is 30.. Right? I'm kidding, aren't you glad time doesn't work like that? If it did, some of you would be vintage! Now I'm sitting at my computer going through my itunes library frantically trying to find a new themes song for life. Twenty-two by Taylor Swift just won't cut it anymore. If y'all have some suggestions, send them my way.
Looking back at this last year only makes me want to get a giant eraser and and pretend it's a chalk board that can be erased. Life isn't a chalkboard, even though some people are convinced if they paint everything in their dang home with chalk paint it might help. It won't, sorry to shoot your dreams down. It's been a year of change, and for someone who is a planner, that can be stressful. I'm gradually learning to roll with the punches. I left what I thought was my dream job, and decided to chase a different dream, I moved into a new apartment with no roommates (I'm way to OCD to live with anyone), and traveled to NYC at Christmas with my best friends. So all in all it wasn't too shabby.
Now looking into this next year I couldn't be more excited. I have an amazing family, great friends, a job that I love. What more could a guy ask for? I'm also working on myself, I've lost over 20 pounds since January (Y'all keep a fat kid in your prayers) . I am really learning to like who I am. I always hated that I wasn't the guy who could play every sport, or hunted every animal south of the Mason-Dixon line. Lately I've realized that God created me to be different, and that's okay. My creativity, style, personality (the good and bad), quirks, insecurities, and flaws make me who I am. Obviously there are things I can work on, but I am happy with who I am for the most part. I know that this next year will be the greatest I've had, it may be a roller coaster with extreme highs and a few lows.. I would love for you to hop on this ride with me and see where we go!
Today's post was different, I was very real with you and myself. Hope you enjoyed, and for those of you who fell asleep.. It's time to get up!
Have a great day friends!
