There was a point in my life where I was just…there. I wasn’t achieving, or striving – I was just surviving. I wasn’t enjoying the gift of being here on this earth and in all honesty, I saw my stagnation and complacency as just a couple more reasons as to why my heart should stop its beating.
It took me a while to finally begin to take those first steps toward truly living my life. And I’ve found a whole lot to live for. This blog; this is me living. I will no longer be stagnant at best. I don’t want to look back at my life twenty years from now and know that I was mediocre. I want to reflect on my life and know that I lived it to its fullest potential; that I was making strides toward becoming the person I was put on this earth to be.
Life is given to us to make connections with each other; to share in our trials and rejoice in our triumphs. Life isn’t meant to be lived in solitude – we have friends and family for a reason. Simply being, that reason is to create connections with one another so as to aspire, desire, and inspire. God wants us to create these links with one another! He wants us to live!
Anyway, I hope you get a kick out of some of my stories. Or maybe a tear or two, who knows? The point is, I want to know that my stories; my life made a connection with at least one person on this earth. If my words reach just one person, and maybe it’s you, we’ll have done what God meant for our lives.
