God-given desires

green

When I was younger, I could never understand the desires other people had. I would listen to my friends talk about their dream jobs and if I could relate - as in, perhaps I wanted the same things too - I would see the cleverness in their goals. But when I could not relate, I couldn't help but scrutinize their choice and think "why on earth would they choose that?" I mean, why would someone want to cut open another person and probe at their insides with surgical tools? Why would someone want to stick their hands in someone else's mouth to check their teeth? why would anyone want to work on cars or develop video games? I just never understood it.

Until my mother, wise as she is, said these words and blew me away.

"God puts different desires in everyone."

With such a simple statement, you would think I'd have figured it out myself, but it was one of those times in which my own preferences blinded me from seeing the truth that was set clearly before my eyes. God, our master and creator, established in us each something different and unique. This includes desires, physical looks, internal processes and pure hearts. He sculpted each individual to be special and gave us the ability to develop the skills we need to become who we are supposed to be.

He has equipped us for destiny.

isn't that amazing?

  3. There is so much truth in this. I thought all of those jobs were horrible - doctor, mechanic, so forth - but if everyone hated them there would be no one to do them. God gave them the desire for it, and they enjoy it.

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…

January 2018

If you are reading this, that means that the first month of 2018 is over. Already the time escapes me! But I am not phased - I'm actually really happy. January was a month of experimenting, working, and the start of school. I have been all over the place, in a good way. I'm starting to love this whole figuring out what to do with my time thing. It's a scary and exciting journey, all in one.

Let's jump in, shall we?


This month's goals:Reach 100 followers on the Miraculous Ladybug Amino app [COMPLETE]Create an email opt-in [NOPE]Outline The Visionaries Book 3 [COMPLETE - aha, sorta]Determine the plot of The Visionaries Book 1 [SOMEWHAT - as in not really]Start Spring Semester [COMPLETE]
4/5 isn't bad, huh? Especially since school has been the focus for more than half the month. :)

Daily habits:Exercise - I've gotten into the routine lately of taking at least 5 minutes to do something, whether that be focusing on my arms with a few push-ups or squatting. This…
