Little Life Update

Hey friends! It’s been a bit since I’ve written a new post, but tomorrow I will embark a new adventure! I’m going on a mission trip, and I could use some prayers.

The past couple of weeks I’ve been busy doing lots of fun things with Bryce and with my other friends. I’ve been reading a lot of good books, and just enjoying my summer. I’ve also been planning some new and awesome things with my friend that I’m super excited about. School starts in just a few weeks for me, so I’m trying to really prepare my heart for the stress and drama school may bring. If you’re a teenager, I recommend you doing this!

One thing I’ve been trying to do these past couple weeks is really dig into The Word of God. I’ve read through Romans, Ecclesiastes, Genesis, and Daniel. I’m slowly beginning to realize how important it is to really get into God’s Word. It gives me a new and great reason to take on the day and whatever challenges may face me.

So, this post is pretty much just a life update for me! I will be working on some new blog posts the next couple days, because I have a lot of traveling going on. So stay tuned, and if there’s anything you want me to blog about, let me know!

Please be praying for me this next week. Pray that my missions trip will go well, and pray that God will open my heart up to some new things. Thanks so much for reading, and I hope you all have had a great couple of weeks!

Being A Dreamer

Hey guys! So the topic I want to talk about today is achieving your dreams. In our society, we constantly hear that we can’t do something or that we aren’t good enough. But I’m here to tell you today that anything is possible! You can do anything you put your heart and soul into.

I have lots of dreams for my life! I want my blog to get 100,000 views ( I’m at about 7,700 right now), I want to write a book, and I wanna travel Europe. I want to do well in college, I want to live in a different country, I want to own a toy poodle and dress it up in cute sweaters. I want to live a life that matters and has purpose.

Some of these dreams are attainable and some not as much, but I really want to make them happen! So I’m doing everything in my power to make them work out for me. Sometimes we have to set some dreams aside because we can’t achieve them right now. But there’s always things we can do right now to achieve our dreams! For example, I can’t travel much right now because I’m only sixteen, but I CAN work on my blog as much as I want to! So for the next couple years that’s what I want to focus my energy on!

If you don’t already, I’d encourage you to write down all your dreams and goals, big or small. All dreams matter and all dreams are important! YOU have the power to make them come true, so do it! 😊 Create a life that you love, TODAY! – Cami

Struggling With Comparison

Hey guys! So today I wanna talk about something that I struggle with sooo much, comparison! I always am scrolling through Instagram and I’ll see girls who are skinner than me. Or I’ll be looking at other peoples blogs and think that they are way more successful than me or that my blog will never be as good as theirs.

I think I struggle with this so much because every person wants to be the best at something. The best Christian, the prettiest, the skinniest, the one with the most followers, etc. I also struggle with becoming totally obsessed with things! Whenever I’m interested in something I get stuck on it and it’s all I talk about! This trait can sometimes be a good thing, but it can also be super toxic if I’m not careful.

Most of my life, I didn’t even realize that I struggle with comparing myself to others. But after talking to Bryce about it for a while I realized that I totally make things idols in my life so easily! So I’m not making this post to say that I’ve conquered comparison, because I’m far from that phase. But I want to begin improving myself to where I’m not comparing myself to others, but comparing myself to Jesus.

Some say comparison is the thief of joy, but I feel like it isn’t just the thief of joy. Comparison is the thief of everything. Remember to keep your eyes on a purposeful and faith based life and self image. Instead of comparing yourself to those who have achievements or awesome talents, be happy for them and encourage them. Celebrate your own progress in this path of life, not perfection. Perfection is unattainable!

So instead of comparing ourselves to others, let’s begin living with more gratitude! Gratitude turns what we have into more than enough. I’m just beginning this path, and I’m praying that with making an effort to compare myself less I’ll become more like the girl Jesus has created me to be.

So, pray for me on this path of becoming more thankful for who Jesus made me to be! Pray that I’ll not compare myself to others and just be the best me I can be! I’ll be praying for you all, too!

Happy Fourth!

Happy Fourth from us to you 🇺🇸💓

Hey everyone! Right now I’m listening to fireworks outside my window while laying in bed totally exhausted. I haven’t blogged in a while because I’ve been celebrating the Fourth of July with Bryce and his family. I’ve had a blast trying new crazy things with him these past few days. I’m so thankful to have such an amazing boyfriend who truly cares about me and always makes me go out of my comfort zone.

I had a blast this week jet skiing, jumping off bridges, and going out on the boat with Bryce! I also ate about ten pounds of ice cream, but it’s okay haha. These are the weeks where I thank God for blessing me with a great life.

It’s a month and three days until Bryce leaves for the Coast Guard, and it gets more real to me everyday. It is going to be so hard having him gone, but also a great opportunity for me to focus on other aspects of life for a while like school and playing soccer. I’m trying to keep a positive mindset through this big life change, and prayers would be greatly appreciated this next month!

Anyways, I want to keep this blog post short and just talk to all my readers for a bit for a small life update! I hope you all had a great Fourth of July ( if you live in America ). Remember to spend time with people you love and thank God that we live in a great country!
