Project Spontaneity :)
So I have had an idea. I've come to the conclusion that writing a blog is pretty boring. And that reading somebody's blog can be even more boring. So I want to spice it up a bit- make it a tad more exciting.
I am going to start a "project" of sorts. The idea being that every day, I will do something different….something unique. So many people call me "too serious," "organized," "boring." And sometimes, I agree. But I don’t want to agree anymore. So everyday I will do something different and blog about it. I will do something that I have never done before, no matter how small. Something unique, maybe even something I am scared to do.
It doesn’t have to be big. For instance: Instead of not talking to anyone at school, I will talk to tons of different people and make a point to learn all about them. Or Instead of watching TV on Saturdays, I will finish writing my book. Or instead of reading the same book twice, I will release my creativity by trying to paint (no matter how awful it comes out.) Or even nice stuff- like instead of just buying my lunch, I will pay for the customer behind me at the drive thru.
Of course, these things will never give us happiness. Only Christ will keep us fulfilled. But my idea is that there are so many experiences God puts in our lives that we simply pass by. What would it be like if we took more of them? We would probably find whole worlds open to us that we never knew existed. I believe our lives could be transformed into merely mundane lives, to exciting lives where we can experience the gifts God gave us more fully and find the outlet in which he wants us to give back to him.
I will try to write a few times a week and blog about the 'something' I did different every day that week. It may not be important at all or it may be….who knows what situations God will throw me into. But whatever it is, I do not want to say no to an opportunity because of fear….in this project I want to try to do things that scare me- especially if it will benefit somebody else.
If you are reading this, please do not be a boring reader. Follow along. Tell me if my posts are really boring. I promise I'll try to make them more exciting! And comment. Do this project with me! I don't want to be the only one doing random, different stuff everyday.
Do it with me and comment and tell me what crazy, exciting things you did today. Again, I want to do everything for the glory of Jesus…. but God gives me so many opportunities to lead an exciting life and through this "project" of sorts, I want to embrace those opportunities.

Well Chelsie I don't really know you that well. But all the pictures that I have seen of you from your mom's site and even on your own I would by no way classify you as boring or serious. You have a beautiful smile and I see it all the time.
