In the Waiting for Godly Friends

As a 15-year-old, sometimes I have a hard time when people tell me, "Surround yourself with Godly people."

When you're living a life for Jesus and can't find anyone else... what do you do?

First Week of my First Job

Last week was week 1 of my first job ever working at the pool in my neighborhood.
Now, I am not certified to save lives, but I am certified to clean toilets and sell people candy. :)

In my short 18 hours of work this week, I've learned a lot, to say the least. From how to test pool PH and Chlorine to learning how to navigate new waters of social situations.

Even Higher

I think so many times in our lives, the exact areas that we feel strike us down, are the same areas that wake us up.

I constantly want to be better.
I want to grow, I want to be the best person I could possibly be. I don't want to wait until I'm 18 or beyond to be the best version of myself.

Even though I totally know as a teenager I need to make mistakes to learn from them, it still felt like I was in a constant battle of my identity. It turned from casual regrets into feeling physically weighed down.

The Garden and Me

For my final project in World History, we were told to do anything we want along the lines of World History. Yes, I have the best teacher ever.

The Way

I feel like when our lives don't necessarily go how we want them to, our first initial reaction is to feel sorry for ourselves. I know that is mine.

But what if our first initial reaction was to just smile. That life isn't what we wish it was, but with each smile, it ignites some else's who may be going through the same thing. What if we lived our lives like we had everything we could ever want or imagine? What if we walked around the halls of our school or workplace like we had every dream we could ever think of, every hope we could ever desire right now?
