My Life is Never Boring
It has truly been a crazy year-and-a-half, a crazy ride and the best experience of my life. Rather than write everything that has happened to me, I will give you the abbreviated version....
Decided to leave Push America to pursue grad school and a new opportunity, reported to Arizona for school, traveled Colorado for a month, moved to Cleveland, didn't work out, brief stint in Charlotte, back to Arizona for more school, traveled Utah and Colorado for a month, moved to Denver to work for a non-profit that does adventure sports for people with disabilities, decided school was not worth the investment, non-profit could not afford me, moved to Texas, contract work for Paps, dabbled in some consulting, started dating a girl, moved to Colorado....again, stopped dating a girl, got a job with a global company and find myself somewhat settled.
I say somewhat because you just never know what I will come up with. In all my experience I have learned so much about God, about myself and about life. I won't go into details about everything, but want to share three verses I love.
James 1:12 says "Blessed are those who persevere under trial, because when they have stood the test, they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him."
James 4:10 says "Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up."
John 3:16 is so famous, but John 3:17 really drives home the point: "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him."
Through my experiences, I have also learned the value of true friendship and family. To all those people who are rocks in my life, I thank you. You are truly a blessing and I am forever thankful.
I apologize I have not been updating my blog but promise to make a better effort because I have yet to scratch the surface of adventure and look forward to sharing my journey with all of you.
Also, I am thinking about getting another dog to travel with me. Yes? No? Maybe? Any thoughts?
