I went from being merely "content" with my life...
to being ELATED with my life.
Instead of feeling that I'm missing out on things in life,
I realized how much of a gift "missing out" can be!
This was the year of shifting friendships.
I felt a great divide happen between myself and friends that do a lot of partying.
We just seemed to have less and less in common, and grew apart.
On a good note, I discovered that
Birch Beer is one of my favourite
kinds of beer.
(Second only to Root Beer).
I tried my first Birch Beer
at a cafe downtown.
It was refreshing on a hot day,
and quenched my thirst.
Birch Beer used to be used for medicinal purposes,
but now a days it is a soda that tastes like cola with spearmint flavour.
Not only was I content drinking my "Birch" Beer,
I was ELATED!
This year also came with a shift in perspective.
This year was filled with many engagements, I'm talking like 17 of my friends, 2 of the weddings have happened already. As for me, the leading man in my life has been, and always will be, Jesus.
For the majority of my life I have been set on a goal get married and have children, like 5 or six kids....but not only am I content with "just me", I am ELATED! I would be absolutely happy if this was the only ring to ever sit on my ring finger. No single-ness blues here!
(Except for the blue on my lips, teeth, and tongue!)
Shift is new,
Shift is natural
& Shift is necessary.
