Goals and Birthdays
TOMORROW IS MY 17TH BIRTHDAY!
Birthdays are a good time to look back on your past life, but also a good time to look ahead. I saw an article today talking about how it is important to write down your "future picture" or where you see yourself in a certain number of years. So, I decided to do that on my blog. Below are just a few of my goals for my future. They'll probably change as I age and discern God's Will for me. It's a big, scary world out there and it takes much courage to face the challenges that present themselves.
So, I'm asking all of you, my dear readers, to do me a little favor for me on my birthday. Could you just take a minute out of your day and say a prayer for me and my future? I'm not a 100% sure on anything right now. There are times where I want to curl up and hide in my room, trying to shut out the world around me... retreating into my "safety bubble" that I make for myself. As an introvert, it can be very hard and painful for me to open up to other and step out to take risks to do something new. If you all could just say a little prayer asking God to give me the courage and perseverance to push on and survive, I would truly appreciate it.
God bless all of you!
