When I look at the friends I’ve made in the past nine months I can’t help but feel honored & blessed. I feel like I’ve got a fresh start on life and I’m ready to tackle my junior year. My schedule & heart have never been so full! When I look at the months ahead I’m not intimidated any more. Sometimes God doesn’t need to swoop down and change it all, in fact some times His power is more evident in the way He can gently calm a storm. It may just be for a moment or so, but tonight all seems right with the world.

Everyone is clearly shocked by the sudden news of Robin Williams’ death. I am no different. But I think it is very important that we don’t just post statuses or pictures but make a conscious effort to pray for his soul & those who knew & loved him. It’s one thing to lose someone, it’s another thing to lose someone in such a tragic way. Suicide comes with a lot of guilt for family & friends who may feel like it’s their fault it happened. We need to pray for peace in his family & for him to be at rest with a heavenly Father who loves him dearly. May you enter into the gates of Eternal Life, Robin Williams - free of all the weight that held you down on this earth!

So after almost 21 years I’ve come to this conclusion:

I’m gonna just live my life and let God take care of the details.

Sounds very cliche, but for real.

I don’t think I’ve ever REALLY let myself go entirely. When I try to micromanage everything in my life I usually ruin it and make things far more complicated than they need to be. Frankly I’m tired and ready to be free of the drama my life has been in the past. The endless extreme highs and lows. Life doesn’t need to be this way. So it finally donned on me…well maybe I really should do what I’ve been claiming to do all along: give it to GOD!

So I’m just gonna live. I’m gonna do my best as the woman I am and the woman I want to be. If I’m caught up in Him and all that He has in store for me I can only expect the best things right?

I’m not gonna push anything, look for anything, I’m just gonna pull a Beatles and LET IT BE!

If God wants to place a man in my life, by all means, but I’m just gonna be chillin’ here. If God decides to surprise me and send me to a convent (and boy oh boy would that be a surprise), I’ll be sitting here doing my thang. 

Right now I can only be satisfied and happy with what I have. It doesn’t make sense to ask for any more or wish I had something I don’t. It makes my life an unhappy one and I don’t wanna be unhappy any longer.

So um yeah.

Authority…

…people say I have a problem with it.
And well yes that might be true. I came out of the womb kicking and screaming, because despite being 10 days late I wasn’t ready in my own mind to be thrown out into the world. I’ve been kicking and screaming my way through life ever since …I suppose you could say.

I’m defiant.

I have a habit of going right simply because I was instructed to go left.
Like the late James Dean, I fancy myself to be a rebel without a cause (hence my blog name…among other reasons). 
I think the truth of the matter above all else is this: I value my freedom (of both speech & action) as well as my God-given free will above anything else in life. I don’t trust people who tell me what to do, because frankly the only person I believe anyone has to answer to is God. And honestly how can anyone be sure of whats best for me if they don’t walk in my shoes? It’s quite rational really. 
When it comes to people in positions of authority…I often wonder how they could fancy themselves to be anything better than what I am. We are all the same, all fallen creatures, all children of one Divine Being who lives outside of time and space. Obedience to anyone other than God in my opinion is slavery. I will be a slave to no one. 

Most people that claim to be “bosses” or “managers” don’t take the time to earn my trust or respect, it’s either naturally assumed or demanded. This isn’t the right way to go about anything. I will never respond to demands. 

I live by a certain code of rebellion.

I live by my own rules.

This rant is now over. 

Thanks for listening/reading.
