note to self: i’ll be there for you, always

written june 6, 2021. Photo by Kristine Cinate on Unsplash I have always looked for myself in other people. I think the idea was that they would somehow hold the pieces of me that I felt were missing. That maybe, if I wrapped my identity up in theirs enough, we would somehow make a whole person. It's not healthy to live like this, but I did it anyway — burning through relationships and searching for something I couldn't quite name. It was never enough, not to be myself, but it was never enough to latch my identity to other people, either. I got close, several times — I thought I had reached the pinnacle of self discovery. I thought I had completed myself. But in the end, relying on other people to help build yourself is never a viable way to do things. It's only recently that I've started to become comfortable with the idea of being enough, as I am, on my own. Several years ago, in this same position, I would have searched for another person to attach my identity onto,

Hope {Day 28}

"For I know the plans I have for you... plans to give you a hope and a future."

-Jeremiah 29:11

I'm not sure what will happen after today. Life is always so unexpected. But I do know I have one thing no matter what: God. And because I have God, I'm not alone. I have a hope. A future.

And that's the best plan I have.

Other than that, I hope to spend time...

- playing guitar
- growing with my siblings
- catching up on school
- making more Polyvore sets
- finishing my novel(s)
- blogging
- living life
- loving God
- laughing

I want to thank you all for coming, following, commenting, and becoming my friends. My blog has been made better because of you, and I don't think I would've gotten this far without the blog challenge. So thank you. :)

And without further ado....

I'm done!!!

So, it's over. I'm kind of sad about it too. Mom says I should come up with my own blogging challenge and do all new topics. If I did that, how many of you would be interested in participating? :)

Good night. :)


  1. Love, love, *love* that verse. It is so encouraging to know that God is in control and He knows what He's doing--'cause I sure don't!

    Congrats on completing the challenge, Sky!

    Oo, I'd participate! --most likely...=D

  2. Hello!
    I've been reading your blog for a little while now (Yeah I'm one of those creepy secret watchers)and I was going to comment awhile ago but I never did. Anyhow this is the long and over do comment.
    I would be delighted to participate in a how many day challenge you make (I might miss a few days since I don't get on the computer on Sundays but I'll keep up somehow).
    Anyways have a nice day!

  3. I'd be kind of interested in participating! I don't know that I would manage it all the time, but I would definitely be interested. ;) I've been blogging strong for about a week now, but I just totally fizzled out...

  4. I would participate! YOu should totally do it ;)

  5. Hi Sky!

    I love the verse you picked, it was one of the memory verses for the kids in VBS last summer (of course they simplified it) and now I know it really well!

Comments make the world go 'round... or was that chocolate?

Thank you for stopping by! I read every single comment and love them all. Seriously, it makes my day. I do my best to comment back!

My only rule is basic respect and honor. Disagreement is accepted, but hate and trolling is not. Otherwise, say what you need to say, and have fun. And don't forget to grab a free complimentary mint on your way out.
