I love Saturdays. Saturday is my all time favorite day of the week. It’s the only day that starts out blank. Every other day is automatically templated with work or church. Saturdays are free for anything and often involve being at the house. I love being at the house. Our house may not be the biggest, beautiful, or most organized. But it’s home (for now at least). I enjoy sitting on the coach with a cup of coffee (in an actual mug and not a travel mug) catching up on blogs, videos, and articles. I often find my mind wandering to how I wish every day were Saturday. I wish I had the time to do more of what I loved.
I have a friend who I truly admire. She probably doesn’t know it, but she inspires me daily. I love her reading her blog (click here). One thing I love about her blog is how it’s basically an online journal. Her life is documented through writing and pictures. It’s not a blog comprised of how-to posts or reviews. Though I do love blogs that have those features, I honestly just love seeing how people live and how they think. I like the journal aspect of her blog and it’s something I’ve decided that I want to incorporate in my own. My blog really has no direction or focus, so I feel free to try any and everything.
I love writing. When I was younger I would journal like a crazy person, write “screen plays” and short stories. Even through college, writing was my strongest skill. Now that I’m married and work the 9-5 life. That part of me which I loved, has slowly faded away. It’s become a part of who I was and not who I am. I miss that. When I was younger, my time was filled with reading, writing, and discovering life through music, movies, and books. I want to incorporate that into my life now. Has my life really become so busy that I don’t have time to enrich my mind? I want to grow as a person. I want to expand my horizons. I want to start now.
