Last month I took a trip a cross the country with the hopes of uncovering some of life’s best kept secrets. There were butterflies in my stomach as I anxiously anticipated about what the adventure would bring, but was optimistic about the journey. And while I did hit a few bumps (actually it was more like hitting cement walls) in the road before arriving, I was completely shocked by my destination. Definitely not how I envisioned it. Actually, it was the exact opposite!
I felt completely crushed, broken, robbed, cheated. The feelings of vulnerability and helplessness just consumed me. This was not how the story was not suppose to end! How could this happen to me? Why?! Can I fix it? Please God, will you please make things right? But alas, the destination I wanted so desperately was not what God had in mind. God has something bigger and greater than I can imagine, though I still don’t know what that looks like. I know that God has blessed me immensely and that I am highly favored. Everything happens for a reason and only in our broken-ness God can make things perfect.
So that brings me here. A new journey with fresh beginnings and a new Blog.
But like trying anything for the first time, I feel anxious and worried. I want to retreat back to what’s comfortable and what I know! But taking the next step with God’s grace is scary but necessary to move-on. It will take some time to adjust to the new format, but I welcome you all to my new blog! I will still share with you my adventures for fabulous frugal living and my passion for food, photography, travel, fashion, Jesus. If you’d like to see my work from my previous blog, check it out here (www.yubargainrockstar.blogspot.com). I won’t forget the past and while my direction forward is taking a slight detour, I pray that I will grow and that you will join me on my new adventure.
