I'm finally sure...

I've lived most of my life feeling unsure. There is not necessarily one thing I haven't been sure about, but little things have accumulated through out the years. Finally for once in my life, I'm sure. I'm sure about the direction I'm going in my life. I'm sure about my chosen profession in nursing. This is definitely the field I want to work in for the rest of my life. I can't explain the connection there. I know I love people, I know I love helping them, I know I want to make a difference in this world. I'm sure about the church. Now that I have had the choice to choose, I know that I for sure want to be a part of it for the rest of my life. Without it I feel.. empty. I'm sure about my family. I've always loved them, but I don't think I've ever appreciated them as much as I do living away from home. I admit, even though I'm only 15 min away from home I still get home sick. I'm sure about Cody. I've never felt more sure about any other person in my life. He definitely makes me want to be a better person. He makes me laugh, he's there for me when I cry. Others only see our differences, which may seem like a lot. The insignificance of those differences is not noticed. We have different interests, but we are more than willing to compromise. Dating him definitely has made my life more of an adventure. I am more open to new ideas, trying new things, and so is he. I love doing things with him, spending quality time with him. It doesn't even matter what it is. What matters is getting to know him more and appreciate our commonalities, ones that are not often noticed from the outside. There you have it, my life in a nutshell. My life that I am very satisfied with at the moment.

Aww...that makes me happy! I'm glad that you're happy with your life right now. It's definitely nice to be sure about things. Good luck with school starting this week!
P.S. You and Cody need to come over some don't have an excuse since you live less than 10 minutes from here.
