Before I get into this super cool thing happening in my life, I want to share another interesting thing that happened to me today.
I was going to the TCU library to meet with my group for a project and it started pouring down rain. As I got in the library, I saw someone I recognized. I decided to say hello because that is the polite thing to do and they said hello back. As I continued around the corner, I heard,
"Hey Cade! Can I give you some constructive criticism for your blog?"
I am happy to take constructive criticism, of course, but I have never really gotten it from someone I barely know. Normally, it comes from friends or family.
I said yes and he proceeds to rudely tell me how I need to fix all my errors and maybe I should take the time to really look over it before I post it for others to see.
I would just like to share a few things:
1. This was like one of those elementary school playground moments where there is a big group of people. One makes fun of you and then they all do. Not cool or helpful to call me out in front of a bunch of people.
2. I understand that my blog has mistakes. I have taken appropriate steps to work to fix these. I am learning everyday.
3. It is not about the grammar or spelling. This is not why I do this everyday. I do this to help me gain a better perspective with the hopes that others will, too. That is my true purpose.
Please understand I am not perfect and I write from my heart. I am not too concerned with the little things because they are not pertinent to the message of my blog. I have really been trying to do better when it comes to my writing. I wanted to share with y'all to let you know, but to also show you how the devil was once again trying to get to me. He wanted me to be upset or angry at this encounter. I was for a minute, but then I realized that some things you just have to shake off (insert T-Swift).
Now that I have that negativity out of the way, I have to share some exciting news.
The last few days the Lord has been really guiding me. I am currently in accounting for my business minor here at TCU and I do not like it at all. It's not really that I don't like it, but it's more that I don't enjoy it. We all know when we are involved in something we don't enjoy, it makes it 10x harder to do. I am in the business minor because I do have a business, but lately I have been praying for some clarity when it comes to my minor. Yesterday, after meeting with my advisor and looking at everything, I officially decided to drop the business minor and pursue a Film, TV, and Digital Media minor. I am so excited and I really feel like this will be a much more enjoyable fit for me. I have been a little worried because it would be so beneficial to have that business minor since I own a business, but I started this business without a business minor and I believe I can continue to run it without one. I am still in accounting and will finish it this semester for an elective. These are things that I have really been worried about lately, but God has guided me through all this uncertainty and I am excited for what the future holds.
In spite all of this uncertainty, God has been my guide and He will always be my guide. That makes me thankful today and everyday!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way.

I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
