First you must End to Begin Again

 There were last minute dinner dates
and escapes to my home town,
while it was still so close.

The tail end of work days,
where I stood still to remember
what it felt like to belong there.

Held a sparkler in my hands and
perched on a swing,
while we poured our hearts out on the sand.

Gathered all the memories
that made it Home
and buried them in my packing boxes.

If I wasn't scared of never changing, never growing, never being all that my heart desires, I would have stayed. But while I loved where I was, I love the thought of where I will be even more.

On the brink of Change

I love this photo (blurriness and all) because I know I'm going to look back someday and think, "Oh yes, this was the end of summer after college, right on the brink of change, when I didn't really know what was going to happen, but I knew it was going to be good." 

Found this quote on pinterest and I think it's perfect for where I'm at: 
Dear God,
I've tried my best, but if today I lose my hope, please remind me your plans are better than my dreams.

Amen, pinterest, amen.
