the other night i was having dinner with shannon. and i told her about a recent thought i had.
at the age of 25 i spent three weeks traveling through europe. i’ve been to 9 european countries, 17 european cities and 3 different island groups.
i’m 27 now, almost 28, and last month i spent three weeks traveling the united states. i saw 19 total states and because of this trip only have 9 more states to visit before i’ve seen all 50.
people don’t get to do that every day. most people will never do that in a lifetime.
sometimes i forget that i don’t live a normal life. sometimes i forget that i have been blessed beyond belief by the things i’ve done, the places i’ve been able go, the experiences i’ve been able to have.
i forget that normal people don’t get to traipse around the world on a semi-regular basis.
i needed to remind myself of that.
looking back over the past few years, i feel very overwhelmed and can only thank Jesus for giving me passion, desire and above all the ability and freedom to do the things that i do.
just know that i do not take any of it for granted.
blessed doesn’t seem to cover it.
