Five Years.

This evening as we were sittin' around the fire, my Dad asked me..."who do you want to be in five years? What do you see yourself doing?"

I thought to myself...and then answered:

"I see myself with a degree from college, and a really good job that's not necessarily high paying, but one that I absolutely love!"

Yes. That's exactly what I see and it's exactly what I want. I mean, it's what I've wanted since I was in grade 8. It's this that I'm confident in. But there's one fine fact that I'm not confident in; I don't know what degree I want from college, and I don't know what so-called "really good job" I want. I have ideas, but still, I have NO idea.

The other day I found a little fill-in-the-blank notebook I had from when I was nine years young, and one of the questions was the ol' famous, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" My answer was: an author. It's absolutely crazy because at nine years of age I KNEW I had a certain desire for this, and now, eleven years later I STILL feel the same way. I still have that desire to write my heart away. But besides this blog, I've been suffering from a severe case of writer's block. Which is part of the reason as to why I have this that I'm at least writing something and using my talents somehow.

I can't promise that I'm going to write a book one day, that I'll be an author, or that I'll even be writing anything in regards to what my future career requires of me. But I can promise this: that whatever I do, I want my faith in God to be a part of it, and I want my whole heart to be a part of it.

Baby steps, that's what I need to do. I also need to engrave Jeremiah 29:11 into the walls of my brain until it hurts.
And now I am moving onto step one, which is to go back to college in September...
I'll let you know what happens next. :)
