We're in trouble so we move on the double

Today was an excellent day. Woke up, went to the gym, then came home and got ready for work. I've been reading a book called "When The Game Is Over It All Goes Back in the Box" by John Ortberg, and it's really helped to put things in perspective for me. In college, they set you up for going straight into a career, so going back into retail was hard for me. I've been fighting to get out ever since, and have felt like I'm not where I'm supposed to be. But last night I was reading about how everything is a part of God's plan, and that my time to do something is right now. It's not when I get a big kid job, or when I move somewhere, but today. God can work through me in my retail job. It doesn't mean that I'll be in it forever, but something will come along when it comes. My daily reminder is that I'm right where I'm supposed to be.

lyrical madness pt. 3

So a little intro...a few years ago I took lyrics from a bunch of my favorite songs and combined them into one entry. Here is a short one. If you're bored you can try and guess the songs :)

Hello there, how you doin'. I've got all these thought just floatin' through my brain.
This is the thing.
Yesterday when you were young, everything you needed done was done for you. Now you do it on your own, but you find you're all alone, what can you do?
You can ask about it, but nobody knows the way. No bread crumb trail to follow through your days.
I know there will be days where you're so tired that you can't take another step. The night will have no stars and you'll think you've gone as far as you will ever get. But you and me, walk on, because you can't go back now.
If we hold on tight, we'll hold eachother together and not just be some fools rushing to die in our sleep.
It's not what we've done, but how far we've come. We will recover.
Lovers walk two by two, doing things lovers do. They're in love, where am I?
Boy, you fill my head with pieces of a song I can't get out.
I thought of you, and where you'd gone. And the world spins madly on.
No one understands what it's like.
I won't run when it looks like love. I won't hide beneath the fear of how the past has come undone.
I was made for sunny days.
I watch the stars from my windowsill. The whole world is moving and I'm standing still.
All this beauty, might have to close your eyes and slowly open wide.
You can try to steal away, where you think it's safe. There'll be One who is waiting to pick you up off of the ground by flippin' your world upside down with the love that knows no bounds.
Everything falls apart at the exact same time it all comes together perfectly for the next step.
This is the thing.
In the end, the only steps that matter are the ones you take all by yourself.

30 Day Photography Challenge

Oh yes. This is happening. I'm debating on whether or not to start it on November 1st, or tomorrow. Maybe November 1st.
