what if everything is not as it seems to be.
What if this world is more than what we see. What if we could be who we want to be without having to please society? What if beauty really was in the eye of the beholder? What if what we see, and hear, and experience is meant to be like that, and we really are not deciders of our own fate. I tell you now that we are not. The world is set up in such a way that we follow and grow the way they want us to. Like small experiments who will not make an impact whether we survive or not. You and I both being set up for failure based on this praised society that has so greatly advanced. Tell me, how is a low income family supposed to put their three kids through college without having them work through it to help out? How are they expected to excel in such a way that they could be equal to everyone else, when everything was unequal to begin with? What if they tell us our faith is non existent because of their proven facts, and what we see is easier to believe than what we hear? Slowly but surely we are brainwashed thinking we have rebelled against what “they told us” when in reality it is what they wanted us to do all along. I am an outcast because I am a believer, I am an outcast because I sin against society. The beauty of faith has opened my eyes to see what is really going on in this society that sets me up to fail. But I believe. I do believe, and my faith is what makes me stronger. Under the shining light I have become stronger and will start a new revolution. The revolution of believers taking back ours one at a time from the hands of what has brought us down.
– A twenty something that still believes
As I sit here thinking about what could be interesting enough to write here, I welcome you to a blog about living life. I’m only twenty something, so you’re probably thinking, what do I know about LIVING, right? Well, i’ll tell you what I know. I know squat. zip. NADA! I don’t know the first thing about living. I’ve been on this world for twenty something years and I have NOT lived. Of course all the books I have read tell me exactly how to do it. How to fall in love, how to lead a happy life, how to be skinny, how to raise the perfect family, cook the perfect meal, how to die knowing you lived life to the FULLEST! Is that even possible? I do not know. In fact I do not know anything except, life is happening. Right now. As I sit here and type away, life is happening. I just lost my job, but life did not stop. I do not know what I want to do with my life, but life DID NOT STOP! All of these fears take over and for once I just want life to STOP for a minute, wait for me to catch up, but it won’t and the only thing I can be certain of is my best friend. Let me tell you about my best friend. My best friend is someone who is literally always there for me. Ups, downs, you name it, He was there. Now, I’ll admit I’m not the greatest friend. I may have betrayed Him every now and then, I may have not listened to His advice ( don’t you hate it when your friends are always right?) I may have left Him to be with other friends who seemed to know what life was all about, but He has always stuck by my side. My best friend. A kind, humble, and thankfully forgiving best friend, a friend to keep for eternity. I love him so much I wish everyone could have a best friend like mine, and that, my fellow readers is why I have created this blog. For when I was in the hole of life, He helped me climb back out, for when I was down He was able to put a smile back on my face, and I hope you too will find my best friend and I am sure He will be your best friend too. I hope you enjoy what is yet to come, and I know it might be a little hard to warm up, but stick around! The show has just begun!
