life beyond the well…

what i need…what i want…

needs vs. wants? i think this is something that i’ve struggled with from the time i was a kid. but now it’s clearly easy to separate things into each category- it’s just the question of what to do after that. i know i don’t NEED new shoes..but i WANT them…i mean, it’s things like that. and of course there are things that you need in your life that you don’t necessarily want. it can go both ways. i think lauryn hill had it right: “what you want might make you cry and what you need might pass you by if you don’t catch it. and what you need, ironically, will turn out what you want to be if you just let it…” i try to keep that in mind but it’s a vicious cycle and memories aren’t always fond. they have a way of coming back to haunt you in some senses and remind you of things that you haven’t truly overcome. i don’t think i’d like to erase my memory, but there are somethings that i wish weren’t so easy to recall. i suppose it’s all a matter of time.

life is a learning process. you learn and you grow. and you learn and you grow. and you learn and you grow…i’m learning and growing…

God-chaser. NC native, now planted in Jacksonville, FL. Happily married to a handsome church-planting pastor. I am easily excited by Jesus, education, cupcakes, Moleskine notebooks, and Pepsi. Overwhelmed by God's amazing grace, undeserving of His love and mercy.
