Excited About Life

Have you ever been so excited about life that you just wanted to share it?

Like, I don't know. I really would love to get a gift and wrap it up and give it to a random stranger someday. Maybe on Christmas, maybe just for the heck of it. I would just love to help someone else get really excited about life. Cause life is exciting. I would want to believe that something totally unordinary could happen out of the blue to me, and so I would love to do something that is out of the ordinary for a person to experience. I want to go hug a stranger and tell them that they are beautiful and life holds a lot for them. I want to bring a puppy to a little kid's house. I want to throw confetti or glitter in the air and give out free balloons. These are all outrageous ideas that probably will never happen, but then again, who knows? Maybe it will someday, and maybe people will think it's completely ridiculous and weird but they will smile and be forever changed and their lives will be exciting.
Today I feel like I can do anything. I don't know why that is, and it is succumb to change. But I feel adventurous and light and happy and like my life is meant to be lived.
Which it is.
Maybe it's the short hair.
Maybe it's the steadily paid photoshoots I've been having.
Maybe it's the caffeine high from National Coffee Day.
Maybe it's getting to go to Neverland with Once Upon a Time's season premiere.
Maybe it's trying pumpkin bagels at Einstein Bros Bagels with my friend.
Maybe it's building a bear and watching the Sound of Music.
Although I highly doubt it, maybe it's the getting of flu shots.
Or perhaps, those are just merely life events that have come to pass this weekend.
Surely, I enjoyed them.
But I don't think that's whats making me joyful.
I think it all has to do with my Savior.

Have an adventurous week,
and be thankful for being basked in God's grace.


  1. life is exciting! and i think you need to show off your short hair, eh?

    It is exciting when you can do something to make other people happy especially when we share about God's love.
    That's great idea..that's our youth plan for christmas to pass gift for random people on the street. :)
    Blessing to you sister.
