once you live a good story

you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life, and you can't go back to meaningless scenes stitched together by the forgettable thread of wasted time.

 

-from 'a million miles in a thousand years' by donald miller.

 

i get overwhelmed sometimes, trying to write the story of my life as i live out day after day. i worry i'm not doing enough, don't have enough to show yet for my life, maybe don't take enough risks. actually, i know i don't take enough risks. that's something i've been slowly working on this year, especially as i graduate college this may: living a better story. it's not easy. it means doing scary things sometimes. but every time i've gone for something and tried to write a better story for my life, i've never, ever regretted it. so that keeps me going. i'm not the kind of person who can sit back and let life happen; so many things are out of our control, but there's still so much we can do.

 

i'm excited (and i admit, a little bit scared) for what this year will bring. hope you all are too! xo
