The beginning...

I, Sarah Palmer, am now an official 'blogger'. The purpose of this blog is to be able to keep in touch and update my friends all over the world as I embark on a new journey to Spain, but really, I have wanted to do this for quite some time now.

Words have always been a favorite of mine. You cannot communicate everything that is inside of your heart but words allow you to begin to express the desires and passion that stirs inside of you. I often call this 'verbally throwing up'. For those of you who know me well, you know I do this quite often. I am quite the external processor. :)

Over the last few years I have spent in Colorado, I have learned more about myself than I had ever thought possible in such a short season of time. I have learned that I am wonderful at bottling things up, running away from problems and trying to make everyone else in the world happy but myself. I have learned that I barely know who I am because I've been too concerned about who everyone else thinks I should be. After a few years of continually coming to the same realization, I think I may have finally gotten it!

I am ready to be who God has made me to be and finally content with where I am at. Spain will be a time for finishing school, exploring new countries and most importantly, discovering who I am and becoming ok with having a little bit of rest in my life. I am ready to live life contently, with no expectations-to be ready for anything, remain positive more often than pesimistic and to take life as it comes. For all of you who will follow this and read what I have to say...I can't promise to be witty and a phenomenal writer...but I can promise you my everlasting sarcasm and inevitable ability to find myself in comical situations. Really....who needs more than that? ;)


  1. Good for you Sarah! It will be a great journey! I'm proud of you! It takes most people a lifetime to come to this realization...and acting upon it is just AWESOME ! I will be praying for you!

  2. This is great! Can't wait to hear about your adventures!

  3. Yay for my Sary! I will be your biggest blog follower -- as I am your biggest fan ever! (This is much less scary then Facebook!) I have always been proud of you and look forward to sharing in your journey! Love you MUCH and praying for you every step of the way! --Mom
