I know I’ve been drifting off from THE List, but don’t worry. I’m still knocking things off THE List. In fact, I just made a new recipe a couple of days ago, while cleaning my apartment. I just have so many other things going on in my life in addition to THE List that I want to share.
This past weekend my church hosted 700+ women here in DC for our Beautiful You Conference. And beautiful it was. In short, it was an amazing, God-filled, praise and worship filled weekend. And on top of that, it was really, really, really fun. My friend A who came can back me up on that. As a graduate of a women’s college, I’m always a fan of women coming together to do something incredible. And that is an apt description of this weekend. If you missed it, get at me about next year — it’s life changing, I promise.
The other major thing that is going on involves a new relationship. I know — I’m discussing a relationship (after saying I wouldn’t do that). Collect your jaw up off the floor 🙂 I got a lot of feedback from friends saying that they wanted to hear about my relationships and they missed feeling like they were apart of my life. In hindsight, I think I knew there were some problems in my last relationship and so in response, I adopted a policy of not discussing it much in general. I think there is certainly a happy medium between sharing waaaaay too much information and having your closest friends know absolutely nothing about your life. In an effort to find that happy medium, I will say that I have recently begun dating a young man (whom I met at church, in case you are curious) and I am quite happy.
I know that it is so cliche to say it, but it is true. This relationship began while I was focusing on improving myself, and building my life. I wasn’t seeking it out, but rather I was just trusting that God was going to work within my life. I have no clue what will happen in the future — and that’s totally okay. I’m learning to just live in the present. It is so amazing how life rarely works out the way you imagined it, but it always works out.
