I've been waiting all this time to be something I can't define

"People always want to define you by what you do. I started saying, "I'm not too concerned with what I am going to do. I am more interested in who I am becoming. I want to be a lover of God and people." - The Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne

When I say I'm majoring in creative writing people look at me funny. It kinda makes me smile. I hear the question before they ask it.

"So what are you gunna do with a degree in that?" - Everybody

"I don't know. Be happy I hope." - Me

*Smiles and nods like they understand* - Everybody

"All I know, is if I can learn to love...really love: people, Jesus, myself, my enemies...before I die. I will call it a good." - Me

"I remembered Mother Teresa saying, "Do not worry about your career. Concern yourself with your vocation, and that is to be lovers of Jesus." So I started calling myself a vocational lover." - The Irresistible Revolution by Shane Claiborne

Occupation? Lover of Jesus, lover of men.

Yeah, I like the sound of that one.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Also, on a very side note...I think this post secret was written about me. Just sayin'.

  1. isn't that book just rocking your world??

    ...caution: it might make the adventure bug worser. but it's worth it. ♥

    i get that question/look/judgment from people about my major. i make up horribly outrageous answers just to see their eyebrows disappear into their hairline.

  2. You are a lovely person.
    Be yourself. People always try to define us. Don't let them do that.
    I'm glad you like my music! :) Thank you so much for the wonderful comment. It means a lot.
    I hope you are having a great day.


  3. Hey there! Just popped over to Wander & Runaway... nice work! I actually laughed out loud watching your video because the two of you sound just like my best friend and I, always wanting to go and see and do, always afraid of standing still. Keep me posted if you pass through Chicago :)

  4. Oh I love love love this post! You quoted some of the very same things I copied down! You are right...we must be friends! I love that you found my blog so now I can read yours! Crazy that there are so many similarities between us already! I can't wait to keep reading your blog!
