Life is pretty awesome these days.
I have a great family, awesome friends, an adorable apartment, my dream car, and a fun job.
When life goes so well I tend to focus on the things that need improvement. I should soak up all the goodness and enjoy how great things are but I tend to focus on the less great areas that need attention. School, for instance, ties-in many aspects of my 'dark' areas of life. I am considering taking photography classes at MSSU. Either that or going in the total opposite direction and taking social work classes (just that'd be a stretch, as much as I'd love it.) I don't know just how passionate I am about photography. Wait, that's false. I adore taking photos. I don't love editing photos. Plus, with so many photographers around it's hard to compete - especially when I'm not a confident, skilled photographer. That's why classes would help.
I feel I am at such a stand-still right now. Like I have to make a decision about my future and not just go with the flow, even though it's a nice life flow. I want more. I want to be more. Target is a fine job but making lattes is not a career. It feels like a transitional job. Just yesterday my ninety-day review was written and it mentioned me moving up in the company. The excitement in knowing another has that much faith in my performance is rewarding. I just feel I've taken ten steps back in where I am currently working.
Can you say Ramble McRamble Queen? I sure do know how to ramble on and on. What I'm trying to say is I think it's time to look to the future and figure out where I want to go. I'll continue to ask God where he wants to take me. Until then, maybe you could say a little prayer for me.
