In a few weeks school will be starting again and of course if you ask any teenager they will say they are not ready. I'm not ready but I have been thinking about it. Last year I set goals for myself. My goals were to not be so sensitive, to be myself, and to try my best. This year I have some more goals and wishes. I told my mom what they were and those wishes are still there but my main wish is to go big for my daddy. It's hard to believe that he wont be here for my last year of middle school. I can hear him now saying, my little girl is growing up. Why can you just stay little and never leave me. I am going to miss his advice and his comforting words. I am going to miss him not being here for the end of my middle school years. I have thought about him but I have also thought of the ending of great things and the beginning of greater things. For me, it will be my last year in junior high and for some it will be the beginning. Some of my closest friends are Seniors and they will be saying goodbye to high school. It's hard to imagine how much we can grow up in such little time. This year will be a year of endings and beginnings for some people. Even though it will be hard saying goodbye or hello, everything will be okay. My goal for this year is to go big for daddy.. A better way to put is I am going to Live Large. Hello and goodbye.

Stop Wishing and Start Living
Have you ever known someone who always wished for things they wish they had instead of realizing what they actually have? It bothers me when people are so consumed in wishing on what they want and on things they think they need. Take a minute and realize what you do have. Everyone has known someone who wishes to be like someone else or wishes to change themselves. You are you for a reason. Stop wishing to be someone else and start loving yourself for who you are. It just really gets under my skin when some people don't realize what they have because they has this fantasy on what they wish they had. You can take what you have and make it to what you want. Why spend all your time wishing? Wishing used to be fun. Wishing on a star or when the clock turned 11:11. Wishing for a new toy or to see someone special. Now it feels all everyone does is wish on the littles things that are right in front of their faces. To me I want to stop wishing on what I want or what I want to change and even on who I wish I can be. I am going to start living. Maybe this is only how I feel and maybe you might not understand but I have seen and heard people just wishing on what they don't have. Are you going to start living?

Fulfilling Your Legacy
Legacy; anything handed down from the past,as from an ancestor or predecessor.
Legacy has been a very important word to me lately. Through all that my family and I have been through legacy is something that I can't get away from. My dad has left this incredible legacy for me. I was never really open to it or thought about before he passed away. I didn't really want to become a minister or even be in the ministry. I always thought to myself, "Oh, that's not for me. I want to do something more..something different." Now, I'm open to new things, to this amazing legacy. Writing, preaching, and reaching the world. I know for a fact that I will not walk away from this legacy. I will fulfill it and I will make my daddy proud. Not only the legacy my dad has left for but the legacy God has planned for me. I am going the fulfill the legacys my father's have left for me. Do you have a legacy? What is it? And are you going to fulfill it?
