I’m honestly not sure if I love living in Melbourne, or hate it.
I feel burnt out and refreshed at the same time. I love the independence and anonymity, but I miss my friends and family. I’m feeling so on fire for Jesus and I’m in such a good place spiritually, but I keep avoiding going to church. As Katelyn pointed out to me the other day, I’ve had more existential crises in the past 6 months, but a number of people are remarking that I seem ‘happier’. I don’t know.
I understand you almost 100% and I know those feels. The life of moving away.
There are many bad things in this world and there are also a great many awesome things. You are one of those awesome things. Bless your cotton socks.
So I received this a few days ago and I did know that but I didn’t want to publish it because I’ve really appreciated having this in my inbox to perk me up every time I feel a bit rubbish. The fact that I’m pretty sure I know who it’s from is irrelevant because the idea that someone wrote this to me still makes me feel lovely. Bless you xo
I just enjoy spending time with people, talking to them and knowing their stories. Its what makes me happy. Sometimes I feel I just need people. I’m sorry if I bug you but I just want to hear from you.
I’m just so happy :D Finally got to skype with my dutch best friend after almost 6 months without seeing her face. Probably the best 45 minutes of my life in ages! Literally have the biggest grin on my face and I can’t stop it. The simple things in life are the greatest.
“I know you’re burnt out and tired,
you have been pushed over mountain tops and your heart has sunk lower than the deepest depths of the oceans
you’ve been hurt and sometimes it seems you are grasping for air.
But you don’t see what I see.
You don’t see your potential. You don’t see your own strength.
I just needed you to know, you are valuable. You matter.
You love gently and speak kindly
and even though others don’t do the same for you, there’s courage built in the simple truth that you are pushing through.
So while you are busy wishing others would change, I’m busy wishing I was more like you.”—
