Lately, my life has been…colorful…I suppose that’s the best way to describe it. It’s funny because as my Chinese students would come up to me and ask questions about my life, they almost always replied back with something relating to my “colorful life.”
“Oh, teacher, you live a colorful life.”
“How colorful is your life?”
“Your life is so colorful!” they’d say with a smile.
At first, the placing of my life into the “colorful” category left a bad taste in my mouth. I had only thought of “colorful people” as being a little out there, perhaps strange. I thought they may be into some sketchy stuff. However, I’ve come to appreciate the way the Chinese refer to my life as colorful.
So, back to what I was originally explaining. My life has been colorful lately. There have been big changes and some excitement. Life has been so full. I’m trying to treasure each moment.
I’ve spent a lot of time with the people I love .
I started a new full time job that I like a lot!
New friendships have formed, yet old friendships have stayed strong or have been rekindled.
This season of life has been refreshing. Trying to find purpose amidst long to-do lists is a challenge that I have taken head-on. I like it, though. I like working hard and then taking time to rest. Guarding my time leaves me feeling satisfied. With the give and the take, I must make decisions with wisdom to let myself be the Daughter of God I was created to be.
I don’t want any moment to go wasted. I can’t and I shouldn’t.
Here’s to this season. A season of change and of growth. A season of laughter and love.
A season of purpose.
I’m on this path, living out my calling as a Christian young woman and right now I’m thankful. I’m content. I’m at peace. And, I’m ready to experience more of God.
I hope to write more soon.
