Rule number one "You must make a CHOICE, to take a CHANCE, or your life will never CHANGE." Now, I am aware that there are many people out there who don't believe in chance, but that is not the way I am looking at this quote. I am approaching it more with the idea of faith, the act of stepping out into the unknown. So hang with me please.
In my unwritten list of rules I consider this number one. It has brought me to where I am today. If you have not heard already, I am officially a college student, attending Bethel College and majoring in ASL/Interpreting. The journey getting here has not been easy and if I had not made a choice to take a chance, I would not be here. Before moving on let me make something clear. I am here because of what God's done in my life and where He is leading me, but I believe it also takes me to live out rule number one in order for this all to happen. The honor and glory goes to my Father who has made me the person I am.
The obstacles I have faced on this path where mountains that I would have considered unmovable, and here is what I learned through them. Either they are going to stop me dead in my tracks and keep me from moving forward, or then God will remove them to show me clearly that He is in this. The latter has happened and I am in the midst of living out what I have dreamed of ever since I graduated high school over seven years ago.
I ask myself often, "why am I doing this?" The answer is, I love d/Deaf people.
Being able to do what I love is fulfilling. Somehow, I manage to put up with all the homework and the overwhelmed feeling that I get every weekend.
I have LOTS of writing that is required and to do any more than necessary seems a little odd since I never really catch up on what is required. It has brought me to the question "Why do I write this blog?"
As much as I love writing on this blog, I also struggle with it. I don't know what all I will continue to write and post. It is very easy to write a blog like this for all the wrong motives even when it looks so good.
I guess what I am trying to say is the future of this blog is being questioned, and I hope to always keep it there.
and if you wondered. Yes, I am very fascinated by Gibb's list of unwritten rules.
