seize the day.

i am a dreamer.

i'm not going to lie.

i spend a lot of time dreaming and planning and organizing how i think my life will be. possible business ideas. possible jobs. or trips. or romances. i wait. i pray. i journal. i create. i blog. i wait and pray some more. expecting my big life defining moment of success to appear on my doorstep one day. magically. with really cute wrapping paper. and a pretty little bow. pink preferably.

but i know that sometimes God has different plans.

and i know my dreams, which seem like the key to ultimate success and happiness, wont hold a candle to what God has in store for me.

i started reading cold tangerines by shauna neiquist and i came across this quote..


sometimes we wait for life to happen. and sometimes God just wants us to get out of the boat. to take that step. to jump off the edge. even when we don't want too.

because its in those moments of faith paired with action that His plans begin to make sense.

and faith takes practice. day by day. moment by moment. its the small, tiniest of things.

and then..

bit by bit, day by day, month by month, that big pretty present that you expected to land on your doorstep doesn't seem so important anymore.

all that matters is the beauty that surrounds you and the faith and courage you have attained to truly live your life. as God intended it to be lived.

so take it day by day.

enjoy every moment.

look for God in the smallest places.

practice faith.

seize the day.

much love,

mary morgan
