about me

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” {1 Peter 4:10}

All of my life I’ve viewed things in life a little differently than most. In general I view life as a big party where we meet people, engage in life changing conversations, rejoice in beautiful moments, learn from one another and laugh as much as we possibly can.

I’ve always had a hard time taking life seriously because I don’t think you should. I don’t think we should over think, or judge, or be anyone but ourselves. But the problem with these ideals are that most people don’t think this way, and without saying it out loud people ridicule me for it. I know I will no longer feel my age anymore. Im 23 now, but I still feel like a 18 year old trapped in my own body. Don’t get me wrong though I love a good conversation, to learn, and to be challenged but I like to laugh and be joyful, and maybe just maybe brighten someone’s day. But like I mentioned, most people don’t see life the way I do and because of it I don’t get taken seriously.
I wanted to write this post because earlier today I came across a blog post by a wonderful writer (I will leave the link to it below) and it made me realize that I wasn’t alone. It reminded me that I shouldn’t want to change my habits or view on life. I shouldn’t smile or laugh less just because I think I’m being judged for it. I am always smiling. You can hate me for it or you can love me for it, but one thing I know for sure is that I’m being true to myself, and to God, by being who I am and how he made me. Yes, I think that there is a balance and that every situation calls for a different kind of seriousness, but I was made to be joyful.

Today I am extremely thankful that I came across Molly’s page. It caught my attention because it resonates with me so much. I hope that if you too are dealing with trying to find that balance, that this page has found its way to you. Is this something that you struggle with? If so let me know what helps you through it. I’d love to hear from you.
