I had an interview this past week for a potential part-time job, and during the interview the woman commented about my resume saying that I have had a very interesting life thus far. She noted the various types of jobs I have had (so diverse), the numerous skills and talents that I possess (also diverse), and, of course, noted the fact that I moved to Pennsylvania from California (that always surprises people).
As I was journaling this morning for my “Start Experiment” task, it got me thinking about my life and how I ended up the way that I am with the skills/talents/passions and experiences that I have; so, I started journaling it out because I remembered that Donald Miller emphasizes the importance of knowing your own story. I’ve never done anything like this before, but it was a really great exercise as I’m trying to figure out what specifically He has in store for me next.
As I wrote, I realized that I really have had an incredible, adventurous, unpredictable and blessed life. I decided that I should start blogging short segments of it because I also think that it can be encouraging (and entertaining) to others, as well as a way for me to reflect on the blessings God has so richly bestowed upon me.
I will try to start this process in the next week, so stay tuned!
