I talk a lot about Jesus, God's promises, and all sorts of questions that I hope will explore the work of the Holy Spirit. I use this space to try to unravel what God is doing in my life, and the lives of the people I care about. This is my life, and I write about it all the same.
Things that I was wrong about: True Advice from Men I admire
When I ask you whether or not you like me, the correct response time is ~2 seconds. (My friend and current personal trainer/all around excellent psych guy pal)
I don’t need to prove anything. Don’t sell yourself short. (My Father, best piece of advice ever)
I am special (one of my bff’s from marching band, he’s so kind and thoughtful, it gives me hope for love in general just because he is such a quality person)
My ideas are beautiful, and interesting (same friend as above)
“Proving it” is more complicated than just being honest (Jesus)
Don’t be afraid
Your jokes are hilarious
You are attractive (early morning double takes #lol; YOLO)
It’s enough to not know (ok this one is my adventure buddy friend, which is a girl, and like one of my favorite people alive just because she has such a beautiful heart and makes me happy to know her)
I am a teacher-to-be who loves people. I am not afraid of many things. I like to explain my thoughts logically on a very birds-eye view level--I was born thinking that way. I follow Jesus Christ, and I accept only that label to describe my identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
