My brother, myself, and my sister!
On December 22nd of this year, I had ankle surgery to tighten up my ankle due to multiple sport injuries that occurred throughout my teenage years. Since the semester is over, I don't have any studying to do, and have had a lot of time to slow down and enjoy reading, knitting, watching movies, and taking time to really talk to the people close to me. Of course, I've also had a lot of time to sit in my bed and simply do nothing at all but let my thoughts build up into an overwhelming mess in my head.
While I thought that this break from my hectic lifestyle would be treacherous, I've actually found it to be a peaceful and eye-opening experience, in which I've been able to appreciate the smaller things in life that I usually take for granted.
I've had time to catch up on several blogs that I'm subscribed to, read a couple of books on my new Nook, and so much more. While enjoying all of these things that I usually don't have time for, I find myself having these moments of personal enlightenment when I'm enthusiastic and optimistic about life, but can never collectively bring my thoughts together enough to make those feelings permanent. At some moments, I see the bigger picture and exactly where I'm heading in this life, and other times, I can't find it.
In this blog, I hope to share what I find that makes me come alive, so that they can become a more permanent and influential part of my daily routine. The more I discover these small things that make me feel more whole, the closer I am to finding who I truly want to be. Maybe along the way, I'll be able to share a few things that I've learned about as well. One day I will be...well isn't that what this little journey called life is all about?
