I finally took action and polished up my page. New theme, new goals, new mindset. Everything is new except for the date on which this was made.
The original point of this blog was inspired by jealousy, materialism, and selfishness. I wanted to be fashionable, to be noticed, to become popular, and to be told I was cute and pretty. I posted a few blog posts, both of which were embarrassing to look at as I deleted them just a few hours ago. That was about, two years ago? I dropped it. After a few months things began to change for me.
My Dad encouraged me and my sisters to garden, I began reading etiquette books, I spent a lot of time by myself thinking about things, I read classic literature, and opened my eyes to nature. But most of all I began to take my relationship with God seriously. I changed my outlook on many things, such as food, education, and being a Christian.
Now I am 17 years old. My goal for the future, Lord willing, is to own a plot of land and begin my homestead. To live as self-sufficient as I can. I imagine a large vegetable garden, companion gardening with herbs and fruit. To own a few chickens, maybe a goat. I hope that in that I will have a Godly man that I would be married to, and a few children. As much as God plans for me.
I want to live a modest and frugal lifestyle. That of which includes my wardrobe. I want pants to be the exception, for no cleavage to be shown, nothing above the knee.
I hope to grow closer to God everyday. To feel comfortable talking about Him, and sharing his good news to those that I meet on my daily adventures.
I pray that I will grow closer to my family, for it to become more close-knit. For there to be respect for everyone and God. That there will be more truly homemade meals eaten together. A unity.
I strive to gather the materials that I will need for my future everyday. A hope chest and knowledge. The physical and spiritual things.
This blog will be updated on my journey through life. It will also include written things that I am interested in. Such as the food industry, alternative medicine, self-sufficiency, and Christianity today.
I have been meaning to write for a while. And I hope that the Lord will give me will to update it and to not procrastinate. That it won’t be grouped with my journal. I mean, I have one, and I think of things to write, but I just never get to it. Sometimes I overthink.
I hope that you find this blog entertaining and something worth reading.
