What He did for me

So today is Easter Sunday.



Easter has always been a bit of a weird one for me. I'm going to be posting a normal post today, so I'm going to keep this one as short as possible but I do love any excuse to be writing so I'm cool with this post but I'm afraid it's not me telling you the Easter story :)

This year I was a little bit shocked with myself. Easter has always been a bit of a weird on, I never grew up in a Christian school or had any interest in listing when I was forced to church on the odd occasion as a child (I'd spend the service playing on my DS) I was aware of the Easter story and what Jesus did for us but at the same time I had no idea. This has carried on into my teenage life and even when I came to know God the story still confused me.

I sat in a Primary school when I was at work experience and heard 8 year olds know the story better than I did. Yes I know the story, but sometimes that's all it was. It was juts another story, words on a page. I was shocked at myself when this year I was dreading Easter because of the chocolate eggs. For a while I never really thought about the true meaning of Easter. I got so caught up on with my ED and all sorts that I pushed the real reason to the side.

This isn't my normal post guys. This one hasn't got a structure and it's going to be preety bad aswell.

But I didn't get to go to church this morning what sucks. Wish I got to but oh well. So I'm typing this in my living room listening to worship music because that's all I've got at the moment. But maybe that's what I needed. Maybe I'v started to believe that God can only be found in churches and classrooms. But maybe just here, in my living room with my mum and brother who are compleatly unawear of what I'm typing or listening to, I can ave my own little Easter, my own little thankful moment of what God did for us, that amazing moment of thanks for Jesus ding for me.

Easter has a lot of distractions, losts of tempting food that sometime had very little link to what its all about, there's pressure to go to a church because its the respectful and right thing to do (what I wish I did this morning) but after feeling far from God, maybe this is what's ok to do. Maybe I don't need to be part of a big congregation to worship God, maybe I can have my own little moment with him in a room of people who are complealty clueless as to what I'm doing.

EXCITING NEWS!

Hiya all.

It's been a while since my last post hasn't it?

A lot has been happening in these past moths My life has taken a roller-coaster of a journey. One full of pain and excitement, love, self acceptance, hard conclusions and fear, lot of fear, it's been quite something.

During this time it might look like I've taken a break from blogging and in some ways this is true, I've taken a break from Acting Natural, but I've been blogging more than ever before.



So today I'd like to introduce you to Lost In The Story.

This is my main blog and is the reason I haven't posted in several moths, I've moved sites.

So why have I done this?

Reason one being that as a blogger I've started to expand and grow. I love Bloggers simplicity but as I started to write more I wished for more control of my blog and the only way I could do that was to move platforms. It's been a bit hard learning a much more complex system but I'm loving it.

I've also changed …

Growing Pains

Growing up is a scary thing and in all honesty, I can't stand it.

I don't understand that at the age of 18 and now being considered an adult I have to act differently and all my old childish but comforting habits need to be demolished. I don't understand why I get disapproving looks when I don't do things others my age do.

Now that college is over people of my age are making the exciting transition to Uni or full time work, but mainly uni.

I'm not doing this.

I've just came out of college with an BTEC Extended diploma and a Sup diploma in forensic science. It's more than enough to get me into uni but I'm going back for a 3rd year at the hell hole more commonly know as college to study business.

When people ask why I'm not going to Uni in September my reply is usually along the lines of "I have a years left of funding and I want to make the most of it." This isn't a lie. I do have a years left of free funding so I might as well get anot…

Fidget toys.

Fidget toys!!

Who hasn't heard of them lately?

These thing are everywhere.

Your younger sibling might have one, that guys in the street, you friends, you might even own one. It's surprisingly difficult to be in a public place and not see one. This has sparked several conversations about how useful these things really are. They're the latest craze. Some people question the usefulness of them and others are all for it, some are cautious because they are literally everywhere and can be a distraction in schools.

I'm leader at my local guide unit and last time we met several of the girls had the fidget spinners. I'm not going to include a photos because we all know what they look like. At out unit there are 4 leaders including myself (we have a big unit). One of them works at a primary school so is very up to date in what these things are, the other two had no idea what they were all about. We had to convince them about their usefulness and that they could help with pe…
