Guys. I did it. I started a blog. * Happy Dance* It actually seems like such a small accomplishment, but I don’t think you realize how long this has been on my bucket list. I have debated with myself back and forth with reasons why I shouldn’t start a blog. Thoughts like, “It’s silly to put your thoughts, dreams and enjoyments online for people to see – no one wants to read that anyways”. But you, reading this right now, just proved that wrong. So thanks. I appreciate that! I started to really think about why I wanted to start a blog – if it was just cause or simply to check it off the bucket list, then it’s not worth it. No one needs that kind of spam, let’s be honest. I want to be able to share all that’s going on in my life! I want to tell you about God and what He has been doing in my life! I want to share the adventures that I will experience, the places I’ll go, and I want to show you what excites me. I love life and life is meant to be loved. Not gunna lie, right now I am SO excited. New things energize me.
So. Knowing that, I knew I had to put time, effort and real thought into what I wanted to share with you, like, I want to be real, I want to be honest but most importantly I want to grow. I want to look back, in January 2016, and think, “Wow God. You’re crazy; you did all that. In me. With me. And through me.” Everyone loves looking back to see all that they have conquered and accomplished. Or if they look back and see failures – hopefully they see the lessons and try again. At least I know I do. I’ll confess right now, that it actually took a couple weeks just to think of a blog name. I tossed around a couple ideas, but I was captivated by the word “soul“. Why? Well, according to my dictionary app *pushes up glasses* the word soul means: “the principle of life, feeling, thought, and action in humans, regarded as a distinct entity separate from the body, and commonly held to be separable in existence from the body”. Your soul is who you are. I know, you’re thinking yeah, duh! But, how would you describe yourself? If you could pick one word to describe your soul, what would it be? Would it be adventurous? Or maybe creative? Bold? Wise? What about kind and tender? What ever it may be, I’ve come to realize that I want a satisfied soul. I want to be content with where I am in life; not constantly searching for something bigger and better. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for moving along in life, taking risks and diving into deep waters but, life is going to do that to us in its own time. No one, no matter how hard they try, can ever stay in the same place all their life. Cause if you don’t keep walking, you’re gunna get pushed by something.
Her satisfied soul. My satisfied soul. I want a satisfied soul. And I think, through sharing my experiences with you, and learning to continually be content and excited with where I am in my life is one way that God will help me achieve just that. Anyways, I’ve rambled on long enough and I’m thankful that you’ve read this far! I’m not just saying that.
“I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned [I need] to be content whatever the circumstances.” -Philippians 4:11 NIV
– Stay satisfied
