This weekend I had the chance to really put my quote of the month into action. A chapter closed in my life on Friday and so Saturday I was challenged to turn a new page and start exploring the next chapter. I had been in this chapter for a while so the new one was quiet scary. It looked like a giant question mark blocking my view of everything beyond.
Many of you may have guessed that I do not often act on a whim. It is written all over my writing, my face and my actions. Going along with not being swayed by whim, I also do things for the main reason that "that is what I always do."So this weekend... *drum roll please*.. I skipped the Clemson football game!!
Instead of going to the game, sweating a lot and getting sunburned, I went to the beautiful downtown Greenville with two of my greatest friends. I will be honest, I was worried I would miss out on something game related. But I didn't! Or maybe I did and just don't know? but either way, my day trip to Greenville was superb! I caught up with my mature-graduated-friend, and had fun laughing away with present-roommate-friend. We ate lunch at the Trappe Door, ate gelato at Luna Rosa, window shopped and walked around Falls Park. All of which I highly recommend to anyone who may be visiting Greenville in the future. The beautiful thing about this weekend was that it was unplanned and care free, I was able to focus on that moment and the people I was with.
On a completely unrelated note, I really enjoy welding! I am very scared of fire and loud noises so I did not think that sculpture was going to be for me. Learning a craft that is typically thought of a man's skill is ironic and rewarding as a female. Each time I get a seam strong and perfect, it reminds me that Yes, I can do this! So maybe they are related, going on adventures and overcoming fears. They both are a sign of personal strength and perseverance.
