Let Go and Let God

So part of the reason I went on a break was because I have felt so stuck, bored, and just not completely happy with my life.  I was talking to my mom about it the other day, that where I am now isn't what I thought it would be.

I thought my now I would be married, or at least engaged.

Living in a city, maybe New York, Boston, or my current obsession... Pittsburgh (went there last March and absolutely loved it).

Having a successful career in a field I love (not sure what).

And yet, here I am 25 years old.  Not engaged or even in a relationship.  Living in Essex, VT (not even close to a city)  Still working an entry level position, that I am certainly grateful to have, but not in love with.

I find myself constantly having to remind myself that what is meant to be will be.  I am a follower of God and know He is always by my side.  I know that I need to have patience, because He is guiding me through this life.  I know that as long as I have faith, and trust Him, it will all work out.

The greatest test of Faith is when, You prayed to god for something and you didn  get it still you able to say thank you lord thats what i called the true faith,Famous Bible Verses, Jesus Christ , daily inspirational quotes with images,  bible verses for inspiration

I know that I may not understand His plan for me, but that is part of trusting God, following even if I don't understand.

So, while things may not have turned out as I imagined, it's okay.  It will all work out, and when I am ready He will guide me to the next chapter in my life.    Who knows, maybe in the coming I'll be packing everything up for my dream loft in Pittsburgh beginning my successful career, only He knows.

Ok, I'm back... For Real This Time

So, remember that hiatus I took last month.... well I'm sorry it lasted longer then I intended.  You know whenever I read bloggers tips to blogging they all say the same thing... don't just create a post to have a post.  If your not really feeling it, the readers won't really feel it either.  However, I never felt like I was done blogging... heck I am really just beginning.  So I told myself when I feel like I'm ready... I'll start blogging again.

Well, after a weekend of finally redecorating my living room (the last room to be redecorated in my condo) I think I am finally ready to start blogging again..

So what have I been up to?

Well like I said, a little redecorating....

Kip of course being...helpful during the redecorating process.

And my parents came up for a weekend gateway on the lake a few weeks ago.... sometimes I forget just how beautiful my own backyard can be (...ok....maybe no my backyard... but still it's like a 15 minute drive to the lake)

It really was just beautiful...

despite the haze from the forest fires in Canada (normally there would be mountains in the photo)

And so I'll be back tomorrow as I get back in the groove of blogging.  I will admit now, next week might be a bit difficult to post because I will be on vacation. Nothing too exciting planned, except for a tip to Ikea with my Mom :-)  Already making a list of what I want.... now I just need to win the lottery to buy it all!

Sorry For My Hiatus

Sorry for not posting in a while.  I was in a bit of a funk last week, but I starting to feel a little more like myself. Have you ever felt like that? I don't know how to decribe it, except I simply felt like a mess. Nothing big, or devastating happened, I think I just got caught up in my head too much, which isn't always a great thing.

Anyways,  I will be back next week.  I'm just giving myself the res of this week to refocus.

Thanks for sticking around during my break, I thought I would leave you with something adorable:
