Would I rather be traveling the world one dime at a time, sleeping in my car or getting stranded in a sea of new people? Without a doubt in my heart. But right now I’m in a season of ordinary, the only thing I’m scared of (besides water and heights). I’ve got a full time job and less time for my own creativity, I’ve got responsibilities and bills and people counting on me to do my best. The hippy in me wants to drop everything and leave, get in my car and never turn back, but I can’t do that right now. So I’ve been trying to find joy in the place I currently find myself in. I’m trying to smile and appreciate the people around me and relish the moments where I’m daydreaming about a future without bosses and desks and deadlines. For now, I’m dreaming up ideas for my youth group kids’ summer and filling my spare time with creativity and collaborations. That’s good enough for now, even if it’s not enough forever. So if you’re down for nights full of figuring life out through art and conversations, let me know. We’ll get through life together.
