The Art of Learning~Day 10 of The 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hello lovely readers and followers! Welcome back to Day 10 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge!

Today’s Topic: How Important You Think Education Is.


I think education is super important. Almost anyone will tell you that. I believe that many Americans take school for granted, since the law forces children to go.  There are other countries where kids would give just about anything to learn to read and write. They would give anything to learn how they can make a difference in the world.

I also believe that lifelong learning is important. College may not be for everyone, but there are so many books to read and trades to learn. No matter who you are or what your financial situation is, we are all capable of learning something.

I believe that developing curiosity for the world around us is necessary to live a fulfilling life. Just go outside and look at the earth and sky God has created! Look at the stars highlighting their dark canvas, or the way animals live in harmony. Look at the way people interact with one another and what motivates them. Doesn’t that make you want to learn?

One of my favorite quotes on learning is by my favorite actress, Natalie Portman (who graduated from Harvard by the way).

I don’t love studying. I hate studying. I like learning. Learning is beautiful. —Natalie Portman

I wouldn’t go so far as to say that I hate studying, but it really doesn’t captivate me either. Learning, however, is like art. I guess I’m making a huge nerd out of myself, but that’s okay. I hope to keep learning about the world around me even when I’m done with college.

Quote Challenge~Day 3 (Hebrews 6:19)

Hello lovely readers and followers! It’s Day 3 of the Quote challenge–where I post my favorite quotes and nominate other bloggers for 3 days. Today is the final quote, so I thought it would be fitting to share one of my favorite Bible verses with you!

1470098823293

There are obviously so many great Bible verses to choose from, but Hebrews 6:19 really speaks to my life. Even though I have suffered from anxiety and depression, as well as health issues, God has always been my anchor. When I failed to love myself or see myself as worthy of love, God showed me how much He loved me by Jesus’ death on the cross.

Hope is what gets me through the bad days. I know that with God I can do anything. Life isn’t automatically some walk in the park when you become a Christian, but at least I know that God will always be by my side. I know that my hope is secure in the only anchor I need–Jesus Christ. 

My Nominations for Day 3:

Quote Challenge~Day 2 (James Dean)

Hello lovely readers and followers! It’s Day 2 of the Quote challenge–where I post my favorite quotes and nominate other bloggers for 3 days.

1470096615099

Today’s quote is by the late Hollywood actor, James Dean. To be honest, I’ve never seen any of his movies. However, I always thought he was cute as a teen and still have a picture of him in my room with this quote!

When I first heard this quote, I loved how it encouraged me to dream impossible dreams. I am a dreamer at heart, and that’s probably why I love to write. But I want to be more than just a dreamer. I want to take my dreams and make them a reality.

Living as if you’ll die tomorrow is kind of a #yolo quote. When I was younger I thought it meant that I should be having fun, traveling the world, and doing crazy amazing things. While all of that is good and should be pursued to a degree, I’ve learned that there is so much more to living life to the fullest.

As someone who suffers from IBS and POTS, my life has roadblocks. Currently I can’t work  or drive, and that sucks. I am a full time student, youth leader, and blogger, but of course the perfectionist in me often won’t let that be enough.

I’m just so thankful that my God says it’s enough. There’s nothing I can do to make Him love me any more or less (Romans 8:38). The grace of Jesus Christ is enough to satisfy me even in my trials.

And you know what? My life is so full. Sure I might not be out traveling the world or partying like crazy, but I am making an impact for Christ. I am so blessed to be a youth leader and help students who inspire me everyday. I am so blessed to be able to write to you on this blog–pouring out my heart and giving encouragement.

I also have lots of family and friends who are always by my side, through good times and bad. I am having lots of fun with them this summer!

My point is this: Keep dreaming because that revives your soul. Always know that living a full life is more than what you can do, it’s about who you impact for good. If you want to live an awesome life, keep dreaming and seek God’s heart for others.

My Nominations for Day 2:

Quote Challenge~Day 1 (Stephen King)

Hello lovely readers and followers! I’ve been nominated for a fun challenge by the lovely Loluwaand. Please go check out her awesome blog when you get the chance! Basically, I choose one favorite quote a day for three days and then nominate others to join in on the fun 🙂

1470097139464

Lately I’ve been burying my nose in the book On Writing by Stephen King. It’s basically a memoir and writing guide by the great American horror author. One of my mentors gave me this book for my birthday, and I am in love with it. Although I am not in no way as talented as Stephen King, I find that I can relate to his approach to writing fiction.

As many of you may know, I am working on my first novel. Actually, it’s my second. The first one never made it past the first draft because I decided that for right now it’s just for me. But this current one will definitely be published next year (Lord willing)!

Anyway, there are many awesome quotes from King’s inspirational book, but this one is definitely a favorite. As an artist, sometimes it seems like life is what inspires your craft. While this may be true, I think that art is what inspires life.

Whenever I feel sad, anxious, or joyful, writing is the perfect way for me to channel my emotions. Of course I go to God in prayer, but often times I will still feel that gentle tug to do some creative writing. Writing is my therapy, and I’m sure that many of you can relate.

Whatever art you create, whether it be writing, painting, drawing, sculpting, crafting, music, and everything in between, that is the gift God has given you to inspire your own life and the lives of those around you.

My Nominations for Day 1:
You are under no obligation to undertake this challenge, but it would be great fun if you do that.
Rules:
  1. 3 quotes, one a day or all 3 quotes on the same day.
  2. You have to nominate three bloggers to undertake this challenge for each quote posted.
  3. Thank the person who nominated you.
  4. Inform your nominees.

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for day 2! As always, please feel free to comment and share 🙂
