I think we all need to love each other a little more and listen to each other a little more and I try to be intentional about this daily.
I tend to believe the best about people and I like it that way. I would rather believe the best and be disappointed, than assume the worst and expect people to prove themselves.
Ironically, I am a recovering perfectionist who is still learning to believe the best about myself. I am a work in progress. And admittedly a little quirky. I love to laugh. I am a loud laugher. Sometimes I think, “Who do I think I am laughing so obnoxiously loud?”
I love life. I love to feel. And I love to experience beauty. Especially in nature.
Don’t misunderstand me; I am not an “outdoorsy girl”. I have never been rock climbing or jumped off a cliff. I have never been white water rafting and I have in fact, never even camped in a tent. I love to be out in nature, but I do not like to cuddle up with it or observe the critters that inhabit it. 🙂
I’m a student at Williamson Christian College in Franklin TN, completing my Bachelors in Worship, Imagination, and Arts Leadership. (Only in Nashville!) While the last three years have been incredibly fruitful and going back to school was one of the best things I have ever done, May 19th, 2012 cannot come soon enough.
I attend Cross Point Church and that makes me a very lucky and blessed girl. I am the daughter to Greek and Italian parents who still work 6 days a week at our little family owned restaurant in a suburb of Chicago. I have three younger sisters and one older brother whose Chicago accents make my jaw drop and I pray I don’t sound that way when I say John or Costco or hot dog.
My intention for this blog is that it would be an encouragement, a conversation starter, and hopefully puts a smile on someone’s face.
