Third time lucky

So this is my third attempt at starting a blog. I’ve been blogging on and off for years, trying to share my thoughts, in my own way trying to find people who think like me. The urge to create has never left. In the past I found myself getting frustrated, either because I was rambling and nothing ever seemed resolved or because it felt like I was putting something out there with no purpose, no one was reading it. I’m going to try and let go of that this time.

So, a bit about me. My name is Kathryn, I’m just about to finish my undergraduate degree in Education and Special Needs and I’m a Christian. At the moment, student and Christian are the only two identities I feel I have. Basically, I’m still trying to figure everything else out. I have hopes for my future but I guess my main goal is happiness. Thats what I want to be when I grow up. I’m not naive in thinking that happiness is a fixed point that I’ll be able to reach and stand at but in the absence of any other concrete plan, thats my goal.

My relationship with God is a huge part of my life so that will be a big part of this blog. I have been a Christian for about a year and a half: God’s always been around in my life but I only met up with Him during my time at university. I know that God has a plan for me and I can’t wait to explore that and find out what it is. The problem I have is in the waiting, I’m trying to become better at that. What I want more than anything is to grow closer to God and be able to grow in my faith and purpose within Him.

Overall, this year has been pretty transformative in so many ways and I have no idea what is coming in the next year. My next post will be reflecting over the last 12 months and I guess most of the rest of this blog will be what happens next. I’m only at the start of this journey called life.
