Bagged Jello: Ew, Gross.

Again, it has been such a long time ago that I began this blog, but I am going to try to do better at keeping up with this.

Yesterday I went to Sheetz, like most Geneva students do in their spare time. Hungry, I made a poor choice. I bought finger jello in a bag. It was worse than gross. But, hungry, I tried to continue to eat it. I have decided to throw out the rest.

Life is somewhat boring. So much has changed in my life since I began this blog. I feel as if the girl that began this blog is nothing but a distant memory to me. There are voids in my life waiting to be filled and there are other parts of me that are thankful for the unaswered prayers. Sometimes, blessings are found in the prayers that we seemed to think would make our lives run smoothly. Life isn't about a smooth ride; it is about the ups and the downs and finding out how to stand.

Recently, I stumbled across a quote that summed up how I feel about my current circumstances:

"When you come to the end of all the light you know, and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: Either you will be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly." - Edward Teller

I've learned to have faith in the tough times and in the good. I have found that the key to happiness is not found within someone else, but in finding hope that everything will work out. Happiness is a choice.

When I bought the jello and realized how nasty it really is, I laughed about it and enjoyed the conversations that arose from it. Life is about taking chances. Some do not always turn out to be the right ones, but you learn and good can come from the negative. Like art, life is all about perspective. Take chances, some will be good, some won't be. You will not be left wondering, "What if?"

This is a somewhat silly blog. <3
