A year's difference.

Just a year ago my facebook status read:
 "Dear God, make me a bird, so I can fly far, far, far away from here.
Dear God, make me a bird, so I can fly far, far far away from here.
Dear God, make me a bird, so I can fly far, far away from here."

In a sense, that seems like just yesterday. But yet again, a lifetime ago.

The moment I wrote that, I was feeling:
Trapped. Betrayed. Scared. Alone. Hurt. Confused.

Little did I realize, God had given me wings to fly away a long time before I even wanted to.
The wings God gave me consisted of:
Faith. Hope. Courage. Strength. Wisdom.

It was up to me to use my "wings" and take myself to where I needed to be.
And after I used them I gained:
Relief. Peace. Joy

Don't wait for your circumstances to change. Take action to change them yourself.
Don't sit around forever wishing you were somewhere else in life.
Go there!

Seek what plans God has in store for you.
They are far better than what you could ever imagine.

Just realize, God isn't always going to stick you right where he wants you.
God opens doors, it is our job to walk through them!
Or, in my case... God made wings and it was my job to flap them. ;)

Friday Confessional 3


I confess that at this moment in my life I weigh more than I ever have before.
My tummy is still flat, but let's just say I am becoming a bit more "curvaceous" than what I am used to.
Which, is lovely. 
However, the dilemma is staying at this weight and not gaining ANY more pounds.

Speaking of weight, I confess that I cannot stand when people wear clothes that are too small for them. 
There are flattering clothes for every body type, find them.
If God made you a size large, stop trying to fit into an extra small.
It's disgusting.

I confess that I am a nerd. 
I look forward to my Constitutional Law class every Tues./Thurs.
And, as mentioned in my roommate's blog, my roommate and I find attempting to name all 50 states and their capitals entertaining.

I confess that I have stared at the screen for ten minutes debating on whether or not to end this post by confessing a certain thing.

Maybe next week ;)

Isn't a little bit ironic?

The irony that life creates never ceases to amaze me.

Hooray for short, meaningless posts.
Perhaps I should do them more often.

It is unbelievable how a song can take you back to a certain moment in time.

Half of the time I find myself cranking up the volume, while the other half I immediately change the song.
Some moments I wish I could relive, while others... I'd rather not remember.
