Now today I am in North Carolina, awaiting my departure for Florida on Tuesday. Can't wait for the beaches and sand. Anyways, I went to see a really amazing movie today "Transformers". It was by far one of the best movies I've seen all year. The acting by those 2 guys to the left was great and it gave me a sense to get up from college, pack my things, move to california and start taking lessons to become an actor. Random, spontaneous, with great possibilities; but also alot of room for failure. Not gonna lie, it's in the back of my mind....
Anyways, these past couple days have been trying to say the least. From wondering things about situations to taking 14 hours just to get here in North Carolina, alot of thinking was definitely done. I realized something after I watched this movie though, after all I've been through, after experiencing life, after trusting in God, after realizing my failures, that I have been transformed....such a ironic thought after seeing that movie.
I've found myself at a place of understanding lately. Things are hard to deal with in certain areas, some of which I will not delve into, but at the same time I wonder what the heck, live, love, take chances, and put your trust into something bigger than yourself. I realize that through these past 8 months I have been transformed for better and my relationship with God has definitely become the forefront. I'm going to say with confidence, not cockiness, that I am different from alot of guys. My heart is beating for something bigger, my life has an open road of possibilities, and I can offer someone something great if they just see who I am, not what I am. I have met so many people over these past couple months of summer and love it. For the first time in a long time I am content with life, except in one area. But that's not in my hands, it's God's....Just remember that you can have "the best of me" and I can give you the best of everything.....
This entry really doesn't have any meaning besides that things are going good. Life is going great and I am continually humbled by the example of Christ....God bless
