Leaping... and soaring

My life is changing rapidly. Although it is not evident to others, I have been making many pivotal personal decisions lately. I feel like it's time for me to take charge of my life and leap from the nest, rather than wait to be pushed out. I'm ready to do some grown-up things and start a life of my own. It's thrilling, yet very frightening to think that I can't depend on others anymore. I have to take care of everything myself. Where will these decisions lead me to? I don't know, but I'm confident that God will guide me, and I know he wants me to be happy. All will work out. I've been told that I can do something about how I want things. I don't want to wait around for a good thing to come along, God has done that for me already. It's my turn to do my part in life. 
I'm ready to get out in the world and experience life. I went to Brazil a little over a month ago and had a wonderful experience being immersed in the culture. I'll write more about that in my next blog though.
