Today, I have really been reflecting on my life. I remember being little, laying in bed gazing at the ceiling, and simply dreaming. I wasn't asleep really. I just laid there and thought about different things that I wanted in life. I wanted to be a super hero. I wanted to be able to fly. I wanted to jump off my balcony onto the couch. I wanted to be athletic. I wanted to have a best friend. I wanted to make good grades. I wanted to be able to cook. I wanted to please my parents/family. I wanted to be a good big brother. I wanted to love someone. I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to impact others. I want to find something that I am passionate about. I want my dreams to come true. You should notice the pattern in those dreams listed above. They start out very juvenile and transform into a more grown up dream. Do I believe that dreams come true? Yes, I sure do. I have no reason to doubt that. Some of those dreams above have come true for me and some, I know, may never come true. God has a plan for us and he knows what our dreams are. Now, as I lay in bed, dreaming, I realize that some things in life are worth dreaming for. I feel like Southern and Thankful is one dream that is going to change my life. It honestly amazes me how God works. I mean I would have never imagined having a blog and hearing from multiply people everyday how they read it or enjoy it. People who I don't really even know. It honestly brings tears to my eyes. God is so so good. I guess I am laying here thinking about my dreams because today, I think, I opened the door to that dream for Southern and Thankful. I have big dreams for Southern and Thankful. Dreams that I could write about for hours. With the help of friends, family, and many prayers, I choose a logo for Southern and Thankful. This makes it officially mine and it means that I can start really reaching my dreams. I know it may not seem like a big deal, but it is a very big deal to me. It is something that I can't really describe, but it is a very very good feeling. I am thankful for this path I am on and I am thankful that God creates dreams that come true. They make life worth living. They make life exciting. They make life challenging. They make being thankful easy. Reach for those dreams... it is possible. Remember, on your way up, give thanks.
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. A recent graduate from Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. 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!
