Well the site is changing a little bit. No new layout, just changing focus.
I have been doing a lot of reading and writing lately. What I continue to come back to is that people want to connect. Over and over I read about all of these people out there that are looking for something that they are interested in and want to be about. There are blogs for people who like Hines Ketchup, people who love Nascar, and even blogs about celebrities (I know, they already get talked about enough). I have always wrote to express things that are going on in my head. Mainly to see if I am not crazy and that others are tracking with me, but really to have some free therapy courtesy of wordpress. Writing has always been a way for me to express ideas and thoughts and not get that blank look on peoples face when I try to explain it to them.
Thoughts about Nothing is really a bunch of thoughts about something that is constantly striving to engage, connect, and then conversate. Honestly when I started this blog I was a Junior in High School and did it because Tyler was doing it. It has now grown to be a place for me to write and be me. What I am learning about me is that things are not always how I want them to be. I get disappointed, I get very impatient, and really just want to hit fast forward on my life and stop when I am married and have kids. Unfortunately, I have not found a button to do that yet and am now learning what it means to be in the silence of your life. The place where things are moving at a snails pace and God is telling you to stop talking and listen. This blog will continue to be a place where I chronicle my journey. A place where I talk about life and make sure that I am not the only crazy one that feels this way.
I feel like the discussion is just getting started. There are a lot of people who I have talked to who feel the same way I do. Often discouraged and looking for answers, but really just trying to hear from God and follow where He is leading them. The discouragement comes from forgetting who I am and getting caught up in trying to be something else or someone else, I even get caught up in trying to be like someone else blog. What I have realized is that I can only be me, a 23 year old, living in his parents basement, and dreaming about telling his story and looking to connect with others.
This blog is a place for you…a place for the 20 somethings to connect with each other and to encourage each other. This blog is a place for you…the married man or women who have kids and are continuing to learn and strive after God, you do not claim to have it all together, but are learning a lot about life and are looking to share that with others. This blog is a place for you…the elder statesmen who are looking to share their life experiences and in turn learn from the younger generation. This blog is a place for everyone…that is looking in sharing life together and learning from each other.
I honestly cannot claim to be an expert at anything. Malcom Gladwell ruined that for me when he said you have to have 10,000 hours of practice to be an expert. What I can claim to know a little about is being 23 and a graduate of college who is looking to make their mark in the world. A 23 year old who thinks he know a lot but is figuring out that there is so much more to learn. A 23 year old who is learning that God’s timing does not make sense. A 23 year old who is learning to dream bigger dreams then imaginable and letting God blow his mind.
This place is for you and me to connect.
