The Porch

The past couple months have flown by and been an absolute whirlwind of opportunities, experiences and happiness. Moving in to a cute house with two of the most loving girls, has been so much fun, I think I have the best roommates! Living in the same house as two of my good friends as well as living on the same street as most of my friend group calls for a little escape most weeks. The Porch is my new favorite place. My neighbors joke that I never leave, but I promise, I’ve been going to class!

The porch has become a place to unwind after class, a place to invite friends over and of course watch all the people passing by. As it gets colder, I keep grabbing more blankets, another sweatshirt, a cup of tea and the music speaker, instantly in my happy place.

Sitting on the porch is like a pause from life button. It allows you to be either alone or with a small number of people and really allows you to dig deep on one person. You’ve “made it” when you’re invited to porch. (Yes, we use porch as a verb.) A friend of mine that I have brought to The Porch has a lot of very profound life thoughts that have taught me that life is a lot simpler than we think.

His thing is, today is the best day of your life… until tomorrow, that we pull open our own doors in life and that your hard work and passion is what is going to drive your path. From all of this time and many conversations with some of the most interesting people on the porch, I have created a little daily thing I have started to stay.

Today will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal and not wound.

These little daily words of inspiration have helped to drive my days, help to lead my beliefs in an upward direction. It’s my little reminder that yes, someone above is helping me with this day, but this day is 100% up to me and that I am going to rock whatever kind of day gets thrown at me.
