I’ve had a lot going on in my head lately with just the season of life that I am in and where I am at in my college career. Even though it’s summer I feel a bit overwhelmed with things at this moment. I currently have an internship with a minor league baseball team so whenever they aren’t playing at home I get the day off, but I still feel like I need to actually get a break from that break if you know what I mean. Like just a break or escape from this place ha. I’m an introvert so I love just being isolated and chilling out by myself, so I’m around people a lot even when I’m not working and I just want a break to truly be at a right state of mind and since God is a HUGE part of my life I really just want to connect more intimately with Him. It can be hard to do that at times during the summer when I’m tired from work or am too lazy to get my time in the Word or to pray.
I’ve contemplated what exactly that looks like and really haven’t gotten any great ideas. Until the other day I was kind of clueless on how to approach this. I was leaving work a few days ago and walked passed my favorite player Daniel Norris (He’s a G, bro plays pro baseball, surfs, and is a solid believer) and gave him the classic head nod and sup (I didn’t realize it was him till after I walked past him a few feet later). A few friends of mine told me about him last year because I like surfing, God , and baseball they told me I would dig this dude. So I read some articles about him and instantly became a fan. He relates with this story because in the off-season he drives a 1970s Volkswagen van down the coast and just surfs, lives in the van, isolates himself, and just connects with nature. It made me think of what a great time that would be to just drive solo dolo down to like Key West or something making stops along the way to surf and check out some cool spots and be isolated. Having time to just see God’s creations and to be able to just talk with Him and no one else would truly be incredible. One of the ways I connect with God best is to be in nature and take it all in and thank Him for the beauty He has created. Just imagining this brings a huge smile to my face. Like another thing is like how sweet it sounds that I won’t know anyone so running into new people and meeting people will be really cool and having sweet stories about this adventure will be amazing.
I am (hopefully) graduating in December so timing of this trip is something I’m thinking about like when should I go on this trip. Do I wait till after graduation or go during this summer on an off week. Then financially I’m a college student so hopefully I’ll have enough to make it haha, that shouldn’t matter though I know God can provide crazy things. Honestly, the biggest thing is my car it isn’t in the greatest shape to make this trip so I would probably want to rent a car which can maybe get pricey I don’t know. Maybe my parents could help me out a bit with this but we’ll see ha. They are more on the conservative end of things where I am more on the spontaneous side. We’ll see where this goes, so pretty much that’s the plan road trip solo to warmer vibes, do things I love, and see where the Holy Spirit takes me.
As Always Peace and Love
