Wow... so today marks the first day of a life change! This word change I have known pretty well the last couple of years, not sure I would call him my friend, nevertheless, with the changes they have brought new experiences hard and worthwhile, new friendships, and a transforming attitude and perspective on life, me, God and everything!
As you may have noticed (if you scrolled down the page), I have not written for quite some time... for pretty much 8 months! And it’s been a year since I started! I know, I know... ‘What’s going to be different this time?’ I hear you ask. Well for one I plan on posting more than 7 times! It will be more like 7 times a week! As you can see I’m very excited! E.g. ‘!!!’ : P (which reminds me, you should all go and read through Galatians, from beginning to end – so many exclamation points – so much passion!)
Ok, so I’ve rambled on for long enough... My life change, which was decided as of last night, is that I’m no longer going to be studying @ Macquarie Uni, doing Early Childhood and Italian. This is due to my heart which has a mind of its own – it likes to pump to its own rhythm e.g. heart palpitations, or what I like to call palps... you should try saying it a couple of times : P. And so with these palps brought very little sleep (4 hrs most nights and sometimes a big fat 0), which has resulted in being very behind in my uni work. This anxiousness was brought to my attention when I sat down at my desk to write my easy 250 prov (provocation) for music, and after nearly 3 hrs, all I had was 3 lousy sentences!
Dizzy + shaky + anxious = no work done = leave uni
And so what adventure does God have me on now? Good question, I’m glad you asked... For many years I have been ignoring the inkling feeling that I should be doing something with my life that involves all things arty, crafty, fashion and photography – pretty much want to do something with multimedia! Having done photography, textiles and art during yr 12 (2 major works, I know! But totally worth it!), and even from a young age I was pretty much a nanna – with my knitting, embroidery, cross-stitch, friendship bracelets and what not. I’ve always wanted to be able to draw – to the point where I wanted to impress my class in yr 3 with a picture of a dinosaur which I showed for ‘show and tell’ (pretty much my fav part of primary school, cause you got to know interesting things about people). The only thing was that I didn’t draw it... I traced it! And unfortunately my class saw right through my lies... So now I want to make my lies a reality – I’m going to learn how to draw but also much more, and grow in the skills God has blessed me with too!
I would love to know how you deal with change. Do you like it? And what skills/gifts do you have? Are you using them to serve others?
I think that is enough for now. Stay tuned for the unveiling of my huge list of all the things I want to do (all within God’s will, following his guidance, and trusting him of course!)
