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? ;)
