But lately, my mind has been somewhere else. My mind...... has been in California:) Oh, how I dream of living there, going to college there, working late at Disneyland on weekdays, getting tan, smelling the fresh smell of California, becoming a Disney Animator:D I've been dreaming a lot, as you can see.
I've also been thinking a lot of what I don't have and what I want, like, "Oh, if only I had photoshop, everything would make my drawing/blogging life easier." and, "If only I had a Facebook, I would be able to contact all of my friends from youth group, and know what's going on with their lives in a matter of seconds." and, "If only I had a cell phone I could actually text on, I would look cooler like other kids." (hey, at least it's not smoking) as well as, "If only I was sixteen, I could drive, have my own car, get my own job, and have the money to buy these things I must have!"
And now I'm remembering from one of the Christy Miller books, my mind was set in The Land of If Only (must read the books to understand this, people!)! If my mind is set in The Land of If Only, I'm going to miss out on real life! I should be trusting God with His plans for me. I know that if I focus on God instead of The Land of If Only, He will help me live as a true Daughter of God and help me reach my goals (photoshop, driving, facebook, etc.) and my dreams (california, disney, etc.) in life (i don't really know if there's a difference from wanting something and dreaming it, but whatever)! Some of the things I want/dream now might not be what God has in store for me in the future, but I am now determined to live for God, follow Him, and lift my spirits up to Him when I don't understand:)
Here's an Awesome song that I just love and had to share with you guys:) Don't you just love Britt Nicole? Cause I do:)
