Level Up

I thought I'd be married by now. Or engaged. OK, at least in a serious relationship.

But none of those things have come to fruition. And I'm perfectly happy.

There is so much to be thankful for ahead of my 25th birthday. Whether it's reporting on-air or traveling to a new place almost every weekend.

Sure, I still think about -- and pray about -- a significant other. It'll happen when it's supposed to.

I had level 25 envisioned as a benchmark for a relationship. That thinking was wrong.

The only benchmark is living life to the fullest, even on a weekday. Especially on a weekday: I just made guacamole for the first time!

Here's to 25.

Worth The Wait?

I should just settle.

It'd be easier. I wouldn't have to try, or pretend not to try.

Plus, why wait for someone that may never come?

These thoughts creep into my mind every so often. Waiting is hard. There's no rhyme or reason -- a day, place or even a time.

All I have is my faith. But that's plenty. You see, I have realized that my life is going to get so good.

Much better than it already is and probably better than I could ever imagine. And I have a lot to be thankful for.

A lifetime of firsts lie ahead -- memories that will wipe away these occasional negative thoughts.

I just don't know when, and that's okay. But I know she'll be worth the wait.
