A Single, 20-somethings lady living at home…
What in the world does she do with herself??
She spends her days studying to earn her college degree. She does her best to assist in the home-keeping. She even finds a part time job to provide her with some income.
Her daily life consists of cooking and cleaning, gardening, planning and attempting to produce a home business, studying, and attempting to make some friends outside of the home and within a healthy circle.
She knows leaving home is not the right thing to do. She knows that she is exactly where God wants her. But how does she remain content with herself? How does she maintain that perspective of peace and joy? How does she refrain from falling into old ways, while still becoming a better version of herself?
She desires a life of adventure. She also desires to be married and have a family of her own. She dreams of traveling the world and building a successful multifaceted company, but she also desires to please God and stay within His will for her life.
How does she accomplish her goals and fulfill her life’s dreams, while still living under the restraint of her parents and siblings?
How does she proceed to feel as though she is making progress in her life?
Too many days pass, with hers still feeling unsettled. More often than not, she feels she has plateaued in her plans to succeed and move on from childhood things.
It’s not that life is hard or unpleasant. She simply would like to see some of her goals and dreams come to life. Her ideas, becoming reality.
She is not ungrateful for her parents’ hospitality, nor does she wish she lived alone. She simply desires her own space to spread out and create. While she understands that she is right where God wants her to be, the fact still remains that she knows there is so much more to her simple life than just living.
There is so much to see. So much to do. So many people who need to know the truth. She longs to spread that infectious disease called Love and make a difference. She longs to see people’s eyes light up for the first time. She longs to experience new places and new people. She longs to meet the man of her dreams. Yet she longs for only friendships that will last the test of time and trials.
Real people. Real life. Something more. Something that ignites an explosion within her.
She knows that when she is able to spread that cheer it makes her feel so alive. There is nothing in this life she’d rather do than see people smile and come to life. She longs to teach and see the flames of understanding fill the eyes of her students.
Oh, what a life to live. What a people to experience.
Petty things do not entice her. Silly quarrels do not excite her.
She simply desires something more than where she is right now. But nothing more than where she ought to be in God’s plan.
She doesn’t want just any man.
She doesn’t want to be in just any land.
She wants to be right where she should be.
Right where she’s at.
She simply wants to awaken her dreams
She desires to see her aspirations exploding at the seams.
To make her ideas come to life.
To see her accomplishments and her hobbies become something to live on, not just frivolous fun.
Here’s To keeping it real!
