Changes.

I hate change. I really do HATE it. I like routines. I like plans. I like knowing what is going to happen next. I don't like surprises. I don't like curve balls. I don't like feeling like I am not in control. So many things have happened in the last month. So many changes. One thing I have learned is that God loves curve balls!!!

I started a new part time job at a church - that has been awesome! I joined a small group called Life Skills For Women. My boyfriend of 2 years and I broke up suddenly last Friday. I moved out on Monday. Moved in with a friend. Started small group on Wednesday. This small group is going to be amazing and I can't wait to build new relationships with those ladies. As much as I hate the things that have happened in the last week. I have an overwhelming feeling that God is preparing me for something HUGE. Mind, body, and soul, He is getting me ready. I don't know what it is. BUT for the first time, in a long time, I feel at peace. My heart is still heavy at times but, He needed me out of that relationship so that He could mold me into who He created me to be.

My birthday is on Saturday. I will be 25. I am so very hopeful for my 25th year. I have been upset because I am not where I thought I should be at 25. I know that God is preparing me for so much more than I could ever imagine. I will be celebrating with some of my best friends and Alabama Football! (Roll Tide Y'all) 25 is going to be amazing. I can't wait to see what God has for me next!!

Happy Thursday!!
