Have you found yourself yet?

Recently I met this girl. She was energetic, talkative, and loved being the center of attention - but she wasn't that bubbly, perky, type of girl who just gets on your nerves, you know? Well, anyway, somehow we ended up talking about what we were going to with our lives [or something along those lines] and the first thing I said was; I want to be a writer. Her reply was blunt and to the point; I hate writing with a passion.

Now, at first, I was offended. My mind was screaming "How the heck could you not like writing? Writing is a way of life! *rant, rant rant*" But then I stopped and thought about it.

We all want and desire different things [and we all have different goals of what we want to become]. These are our God-given desires. Whether they be a part of our life or something we strive to be, we all want something; a certain place on this round planet we call home.

For an example, let's use you, my [wonderful] reader. Maybe you want to be a writer too. Or an artist. A dancer, a singer, an actor. Maybe you want to put yourself out there, telling the world your name and hoping they'll echo it back in joyous acceptance. Maybe you like your quiet corner of the world, where everything is your own and there is no one around to bother you.

Or maybe you don't know what you want yet.



The will to win, the desire to succeed, 
the urge to reach your full potential...
these are the keys that will unlock 
the door to personal excellence.
-Confucius





You may not know what your soul purpose is yet - and I'm not telling you to rush out the door or rip through the books you own to look for it. But if you want to find it, you'll have to look within yourself, and have "the will to win, the desire to succeed", and eventually, you "will unlock the door to personal excellence".

Have you found yourself yet?

  1. So true, we all have our gifts and our dreams. I want to be many things...I'd like to do something like teaching for my main job, and then sew, act, and write on the side. Crazy? Maybe, but it's just an idea...:)
    Great design! I love the circle thingy. ;)

  2. Number 1, I LOVE the new design, it's GORGEOUS. The last one was awesome but I absolutely think this one is amazing!!!!
    and second, as of right now, I know what I *want* to do with my life, I want to be a missionary in Uganda. But a little over a year ago? I would have said I had. no. idea. I didn't and still don't see a problem with that, I say live life while your young and let that work itself out when you *actually* need to know that. My friends have their entire lives planned out, I say it's a waste. Ultimately, what I do with my life is GOD'S plan, so why waste time planning it myself, when God already has it worked out?
    Well there's my little rant/rambling. haha.

    Stay flawless,

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…

Good-bye.

Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…

Angel by the Wings (Piano Cover)

Many months ago I fell in love with this song. And like anyone who has fallen in love, it's stuck with me -- to the point where I can now play it with my eyes closed.
I think I love it so much because the lyrics go like:
"You can, you can do anything, anything
You can do anything"
Over and over. In these past few months, I've needed those power phrases on repeat.



Thank you, dear music, for being the inspirational piece to get me back into taking piano lessons. Thank you for inspiring me to learn other pieces (and yet always return to you).
It scares me to share this with you because it is imperfect, our piano needs tuned, it's not visually stimulating, or even a good quality soundtrack. But I think I would be doing myself an injustice if I didn't.
Besides, everyone has to start somewhere.
Enjoy.
