I am a Dreamer.

I’ve found a truth in my own life that I’m going to apply to everyone else’s as well. This may be considered a logical fallacy. But I don’t really care. I like my brain. What I’ve discovered is this: a blogger who hasn’t decided what his or her purpose is in his or her blog will never succeed. It’s not that people won’t enjoy reading these blogs. No, the problem is that we humans thrive on having purpose. We need ambition, motivation, drive. An aimless blogger tends to get tired of blogging. Blog blog blog. What a silly word. Anyway, all this to say that I’ve decided a purpose for my blog. It’s probably too simple. And it’s probably too broad. But it is a purpose nonetheless.

I want to share my life with you. And I’d like you to share yours with me. Life is beautiful. It’s messy and terrifying and fantastic and awkward and wonderful. But it is not good that man be alone. We were made to share our lives with each other. Maybe so we don’t feel so crazy. Or maybe so that we can be crazy together. Who knows. Anyway, this blog is an invitation to live life with me, to dream with me. I’m not the greatest writer in the world. And you may not be either. But every life is worth sharing.

So without further ado, may the blogging begin! Again!

Summer is upon me. It’s only two weeks in. But you’d be amazed at what can happen in two weeks. It’s been an interesting summer thus far, brimming with surprise, change, brokenness, romance, heartache, joy, goodbyes, beginnings, friendship, beauty. Now, I’m the type of girl who loves to dream but never really seems to do much with it. I hope this summer changes that a little. Kung Fu Panda gives me hope.

This summer, I would love to learn how to cook.
I’d like to write more music.
I’d love to write more in general. Poems, lyrics, stories, the whole shebang. Maybe I’ll get better at writing and then reading this will become more fun.
I’d love to take more pictures.
I really want to volunteer somewhere. Gotta narrow that one down.
I want to find a great spot to go fishing or read a book.
I should like to build many a cake.
I hope I laugh more than I cry.
I plan to ride my bike every day.
It would be great if I pass my American Government class.
I want to practice my listening skillz.
I’d love to garden a little.
I hope to go on a road trip with my friends.
I pray that Jesus teaches me to love better.
I want to explore my brain, figure out what all is in there.
I hope my summer is simple.

Do you have any summer dreams? Travel plans? Anything? I hope you do something great with your summer. Even if you are working 9 to 5 or are a full-time mother or you feel trapped in your routine, greatness is still waiting for you! Just don’t be aimless. Because we were made for more than aimlessness…
