I am very intelligent and yet I let my emotions lead me in making choices. I always have. I have made serious choices from an emotional place and conventional wisdom would label these misteps. But I am who I am and I own it with and without doubt.
I will strive to stop putting off life until things "settle down". I long to embrace every day for what it is and to enjoy and feel the beauty in every day. "Life is what happens while you're making other plans" has always been very poignant to me. I know I am guilty of this and I consider it's practice a great sin. My life is blessed.
