Hello, my name is Shaylee Jo Thomas. I will be one of the bloggers for this site, and I thought I would start off by telling you a little bit about myself.
I was born in California but I have spent most of my life in Minnesota; my heart lies in both states. I am currently in college studying to become an English teacher. I chose this career path because I enjoy reading, writing, and human interaction. I believe that writing is a beautiful thinking process that can be used to express feelings and create stories. Stories are naturally intriguing to us because they allow for adventures of the mind.
Besides mind adventures, I also love travelling. This is when we get to make our own stories. I love seeing new places and experiencing new things. I do, however, believe that travelling consists of more than just leaving our hometowns or even our country. We have the ability to see new things each and every day we live, or rather to see old things in a new way. I am a strong believer in the power of perception.
I am a lover of simplicity. There is so much beauty in simple things. I enjoy watching rain hit my window, playing cards with my grandparents, and finding the poem in every song I hear.
I am a lover of my Creator. His blessings are bountiful, and I can only hope that I am pleasing Him with the way I live my life. I wish to share the love and comfort He gives me daily to those around me.
My favorite saying: live loved.
My favorite quote:
“Far away, there in the sunshine, are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them; but I can look up, see their beauty, and try to follow where they lead.”
– Louisa May Alcott
My favorite scripture:
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” – John 16:33
Join me in living loved and following aspirations.
