Oh hey y’all! It’s me, Cassie! You know the girl who has been MIA from this blog for the past 5 months…. or maybe it would make sense at this point if you didn’t know who this girl was from this blog. Either way, I’m back! But not only am I back, I’m writing this post from my hotel room all the way in Switzerland!! Far from home, across the world, and I happened to look back at my blog today and read my last post (not the outfits, the expectations post) and inspired myself to write a post. Honestly, since I got here in Switzerland, I’ve had a lot on my mind and a blog post has been brewing in my head. A post about what I’ve been going through, where I’m at in life currently, and just what I’ve learned. Because let me tell y’all, a lot has changed since May. A lot has changed in my life in general since the beginning of the year. At the beginning of the year I felt the Lord telling me how 2018 was going to be a Challenging year. Maybe challenging is not the best word to describe it. More like a year that I was really going to have to lean on the Lord and trust Him in some of life’s challenging moments. On October 7th, 2018 I can confirm that has been pretty darn accurate. I plan on sharing these things and my struggles, because once again if sharing my life can help or encourage just one person, then this blog is all worth it. Mission accomplished.
Show of hands, who has ever been disappointed by an expectation you had, that totally did not go the way you envisioned? If your hand isn’t raised right now, then you are either in a public place, or thought that was a rhetorical request (same girl, same). At one point or another, I’m sure everyone has had a moment in their life where they’ve thought to themself, “I didn’t see my life going this way.” Or maybe something a long the lines of, “I thought I would’ve completed this by now, I thought I would’ve been farther along than that by now”. Have you ever thought that maybe that expectation you had was actually a fantasy or a completely unrealistic thought you set yourself up for?

Take a minute and think about where you live: everything you own, all the furniture, all the things hung on the walls. Now let me ask you this: Could you move everything out of your house today, right now? You have the whole day, but nothing is packed, no moving truck has been booked, no storage unit rented, and no preparation whatsoever. Well before you underestimate yourself, let me tell you that it is possible and pretty much describes how the weekend went when I decided to move out.
