Wow! It has seriously been a long time since I have blogged. I thought today was probably the day! Life has been kind of a whirlwind lately. It has been good. This year has been decidedly better than last year. Mainly due to a drastic life attitude adjustment on my own part. For some reason, last year was just tough for me...I had slowly been creeping into this negative attitude about life and human nature in general. I felt like I wasn't where I expected to be at that point in my life. But that has all changed.
I'm still not completely sure why, but have had a renewed hope about life in general starting about 6 months ago. I think it is God holding me on His lap saying, 'Kelsey, I am still here. Even though you don't always see me, or can't see me working how you would like me to work, I know what I am doing. I am in control and I am holding you in my arms." I just feel this huge blanket of comfort and peace and feel fully confident that God can still do a great work in me yet.
I have been very intentional in the past months about going out more and being as sociable and active as I possibly can. I've been spending time with friends that I haven't seen in a while, I've been going to the gym, and I've been more actively participating in events at church and work. I think that for me, the more I let myself slip into sitting home alone, the easier it is to slip into negativity. Surrounding myself with friends and family have been the best thing for me.
