Times have changed. I feel like while growing up I had a next step to take... A step I could make on my own and one I had everything I would need to be successful. I knew where my decisions would take me. I look out in my future and it still seems very unknown... I feel like I have climbed as high as I know how to. And I am in some sort of waiting place. By waiting place I don't mean to be inactive, to stop life but rather to "to look forward to eagerly"... A place full of endless opportunities but ones I just don't know where they will take me. They are all great options these include to go on a study abroad to Fiji, Australia, and New Zealand. To go on a mission. Continue with school.
Lately, I've been reading The Matched Triology
Where their society matches the children to their best match to marry. Sometime I wish I was Matched. That this wait would be over. But then I realize Love isn't that easy. Love is found along the journey. Love is found in this waiting place.
In this waiting place my cousin Lauren Claire and I
have decided to create a waiting list bucket. A bucketful of things we want to do before this wait is over.
1. Road Trip to California
2.Learn to play the guitar
3.Learn to make Ice Cream
4.Send a message in a bottle
5.Join a bowling League
6.Complete a Journal
7.Get in shape
8. Write a song
9. Have our own stars
10. Take a homeless person out to dinner
11. Have a mud fight
12. Run a half marathon
13. Make a quilt
14. Light off Lanterns with wishes on them
15. carve our names in a tree
16.Write letters to ourselves to open in five years
This is the beginning to a new step in life
one of progressing and becoming.
