Day 17: Highs and lows of 2010

2010 was a lot better than the 2 years before it. I finally broke free of my depressed, anti-social rut and reconnected with friends, church, and God. I had a relationship again, albeit not under the best circumstances, but nonetheless, I started going to church again and making friends there, I started reading every day, I started working out, my grades are better,  I set goals, I achieved most of them, the Reds made the playoffs, I got my driver’s license, a lot of good things happened.

A lot of crap happened too, of course!

Hospital visits, quite a few of them, break-ups, okay, break-up, fights, you know, average stuff.

But the biggest events were probably getting reconnected with my church and God, and getting my license.

I’ve been so much happier since I started going to church again, making some friends, expanding my comfort zone. I finally got out of that Godless, friendless, self-confidenceless rut I’ve been in for so long and I feel great about it.

Also now that I’m reading and writing every day, my mind feels vitalized, and I grow in my faith so much more, since most of it Christian stuff. And writing is a great stress reliever.

Also a huge impact on my life has been working out! I started in the summer, got more serious in the fall, and have a whole plan for the next 2 years with goals and a routine. I will finish that marathon! I found when you write goals down, they just magically happen. It’s true. Try it.

Anyways, I’m looking forward to 2011. 2010 was like a  stepping stone, it showed me I’m not worthless, and I can do anything I set my mind to. I also learned God really has big plans for me, and I cannot wait to figure out what they are and fulfill them in 2011 and beyond. 🙂

Day 9: How you hope your future will be like

I want my future to be filled with happiness, promise, and opportunity. I don’t know specifically where I want to live or what I want my wife to look like or how many kids I want, I just want to be content with what I’ve made myself and the decisions I’ve made. I kind of want to travel, at least a little bit. I want to see stuff outside of Ohio, and live somewhere warmer, I know that. I want a steady job, and uh, I don’t know, I just want to be close to God and other people. I don’t have much to say on this subject…Sorry.

Day 8: A Time I Felt Most Satisfied With My Life

I don’t know if there was any specific moment that I can recall, but after thinking about it I think it was when I went to Grace Church. I was so involved, I had friends, and I was close to God. Breakout was probably the most helpful and fun thing I’ve ever been a part of. Just getting together and talking about God, growing in our faith together, helping the church and the community in the process. All those times after Breakout too, playing Mario Kart and football and all that, it just felt right.

I don’t know if it’s good or bad that I was most satisfied with life in 4th grade. Probably both. Good because everyone should have a good childhood and get an early relationship with God going. But bad because we should be growing in that relationship and other relationships every day. But that’s the only time I can think of. Life was simple and fun with those people in that environment. I’m glad I still talk to them and see them when I visit though. I miss that church…But I’m working on getting involved in my new church and making new friends. I want that back.
