“When I was young, there were very few [church] elders willing to talk about their darkness; most of them pretended that success was all they had ever known… I thought I had developed a unique and terminal case of failure. I did not realize I had merely embarked on a journey toward joining the human race.”
Hi, Heather here.
Thanks for visiting my blog! I appreciate each and every reader that comes across these pages filled with my inner dialogue–I hope you can find something useful here, whether advice or a good laugh. Though I do aim to entertain, my main purpose in writing is to document how my life is going and how God is changing my life through what is often characterized as a “quarter-life crisis.” Yes, the link leads to Wikipedia. How do you think I got through college?
Anyways, I graduated from college in 2013 having spent most of my time volunteering at my church, enjoying time with my Phi Mu sisters, and studying
entirely too much. Since then, I’ve lived in my hometown, Virginia Beach, and worked writing business proposals for various companies.
“But wait, Heather. It looks like you have your life together.” Lies and slander. Don’t let any of this deceive you. Thing is, I am not where I thought I’d be when I got my diploma now five whole years ago. In fact, my whole life I never even thought about the transition from college kid to real adulthood. And guess what? That’s OK. That is what this blog is all about!
Just because this time in life is rough, and isn’t really planned, that doesn’t mean you are taking a hiatus away from life itself. You are still learning and developing, growing into who you will become. I constantly have to remind myself of that. God doesn’t just stand at the end of the race and wait for you to finish and suddenly be mature. He’s running next to you the whole time, as your sustenance and support. He doesn’t abandon you to figure it out on your own. Thank You, God, for being my ever-present help.
Reader, I want you to know that I am praying for you, and our generation. Though we are struggling to move forward in the midst of a plethora of circumstances, we don’t have to be our personal Atlas. Jesus is holding the world up, and in doing so is putting us in a position that is closer to God than ever possible before. How cool.
So. Have fun reading, and please comment, share, whatever! God is good. Spread the Word.
