I started this blog a while ago with no idea what to write about for my first entry. My sister recently sent me a quote that said, “Sometimes, the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t have to, it’s not for them,” and it helped me decide what to write about. So thank you, Heather:). Here goes my first. blog. post. EVER.
It’s been two years since I graduated high school and my life is not what I pictured it would be like.
I don’t have a car yet, I don’t have many friends, I don’t have a boyfriend, I’ve never been in love, I don’t have the best job, I don’t even have an associate degree. I have nothing that I thought I’d have. You know what I do have?
I have my own place, a roof over my head. I have a decent job that gives me hours. I have 38 college credits (even if it is mainly generals). I have feet and legs that carry me where I need to go. I have transportation if I need it (even if it’s not my own vehicle). I have family that loves me that I can talk to at any moment. I have savings. I have absolutely no debt. I’m establishing good credit. I have a bed to sleep on at night. I have clothes. I have shoes. I have my health. I have a phone. I have everything I need yet nothing I thought I’d have.
The most important thing I have? God.
In the last few years God has shown me so much. He has taken me to places I never thought I’d be, introduced me to people who I never thought I’d meet. I thought I had my whole life planned when I was 18 years old. I was going to go to a whole different state and start over. Yet none of that worked out. And although I feel super alone sometimes and I don’t understand what Gods plans are for me… the only thing I can do is trust God and not worry about everything.
