Five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes

Yet another year has passed by. I've grown quite a bit. Professionally, I've gotten a promotion - more responsibility, but hopefully ::fingers crossed:: more fun. Emotionally, I've learned (or at least I think I have) not to fall in love too quickly. To "guard your heart" is even more important than I realized. Spiritually, I've had an on and off relationship with God. Sometimes I just know He's there every step of the way. Other times, I struggle to recognize Him in my life...

Though I've grown, sometimes I feel as if I'm bumbling along wasting away my 20s. I still struggle to find myself. Identifying my likes and dislikes has proven to be an enormous challenge. Do I do the things I do because I want to do them? What are my goals? Am I focusing on the right things? Who am I? Why am I here? What am I supposed to accomplish? What if I figure out the answers to these questions too late?

At the beginning of 2008, I challenge myself to find some direction, to actively pursue it, and not to get stuck in a routine because it is comfortable. I insist that I actively pursue something anything that I love. Life should no longer pass me by while I passively let the time slip through my fingers.
