Hello and welcome to my blog. I am so glad you are. Through this blog, I would love to do a couple of things. First I want to use this as a way to share my thoughts (hints the name of the blog). I want to share my struggles, my victories, and everything in between.
I am writing this just as a way to put my thoughts/feelings on a public platform. Naturally, I am an introvert so being able to write my thoughts out is much easier for me than trying to explain it to others by talking. My hope with that is that someone may come across this blog maybe by accident, but to be honest, I do not believe in accidents so much; so if you do come across this blog I do not think it will be by accident and in fact, you will be right where you are supposed to be. When and if they do come across this blog my hope is they might relate to the thoughts and feelings and that they might not feel alone in this world. As someone who struggles in different areas in my own life, I know that the worst feeling in the world feels like there is one who understands how I feel and no one possibly could. I want to show that it is just not true, although every situation of suffering is different. I firmly believe that we can all relate to each other in a somewhat similar way.
The main reason for writing this blog and my whole reason for living my life is for my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. My goal is in each post, thought, struggle, and victory I would be able to show how Jesus is there through it all and in Him, we have new life. I would be a fool to keep this great treasure to myself, although none of us deserve it we all should have to opportunity to see there is freedom in Jesus, and my prayer is that through the stirring in your heart for something more, that there might be a post that points you in the right direction.
To wrap this first post, I want to give you a little background about me. I am a 21-year-old college student in the United States. I live in one of the most beautiful states in the USA, South Dakota (the one where Mount Rushmore is). If you still are not sure what I am talking about Mount Rushmore is the big rock with the four presidents face on it. I am a business major, and I will graduate in May of 2020. I am into reading, great podcast, and now I suppose blogging. As you might begin to see I live a fairly ordinary life and that is why I decided that blogging would be perfect. There are already way too many people who live these extraordinary lives, but that is hard to relate with. Most of us like myself are ordinary people living ordinary lives, and I hope that you might see that and find it easy to connect to my thoughts and feelings. By the way, there is nothing wrong with living “ordinary” lives whatever that means, it is 100% what we make of it, and even the most seemly boring life can be the most fulling if we allow it. I am so excited to begin this new adventure and even if no one ever reads this I still so honored to have this opportunity. If there is ever anything that you disagree with me on or if you think I am flat out wrong please please let me know. I am life long learner, and I love to be challenged and grow through it. If you ever want to chat about anything at feel free to reach out and I would be happy to talk.
I hope you have a GREAT week, Blessings and Peace.
