2013 has been my roller coaster year. I think more than I could have ever expected and more than I would have chosen. I am not where I expected to be right now. And I am so happy.
I've been thinking a lot about our plan, verses God's plan. I've seen a lot of changes and I know God has been directing my life. I'm living a different life than I thought I would right now, but it is a good life.
Today in church we talked about gratitude. The idea was that the key to the holiday season and to a happy life is gratitude, that it can change your perspective on life. So today I am grateful.
I am grateful for the life that I left behind of my dream career in music, and I'm grateful for the life that I now have. It's smaller than I anticipated. I don't do as much performing as I want, and I don't have my dream job, but I love the life I am dreaming. I love coming home to my best friend every night, and I love the progress we are making together.
This Christmas season, I am grateful for where I am and where my life is going.
