When Life Doesn't Go As Planned




Oh, hey! I have a blog. How about that?

Oh, dear....Friends, I promise I had big plans for Acoustic Erin in 2018. Plans for starting out that #JanuaryBloggingLife strong, with multiple posts a week, and a better social media game, and maybe even revamping my music blog. But, then, as it does, life happened.























I mean it, folks.

Life didn't slow down when we moved from 2017 to 2018; it just revved its little life engine up. Everything's been happening (I got sick, friends got engaged, friends got pregnant, I started my full-time job hours, etc., etc.) but it's O K A Y. And even though life is not how I planned it at the start of the year, I love it. It's actutally better.

Small Things I've Learned

























I am blessed. Parents, sister, cousins, family...you are my heart.

Social media ain't nothing. Guys, if you're busy living your lives on social and stressing yourself out, then unplug, hydrate yourself and read a book. I repeat, GET OFF THE COMPUTER. Social media is overhyped and taking time away from the screen is so rejuvinating. Especially if your job requires the Interwebs.

Listen to God. He has your best interest at heart even when you really, really want something else. He has something better for you, guaranteed. It's worth the wait.

Don't try to do all the things. It's hard enough trying to handle work, school and everything else that comes with life. No need to beat yourself up over additional accomplishments. Rest in the Lord, take time for yourself and be at peace.

This is a super sappy random mushy post but I honestly don't even care anymore. It's better to just be real.

Yo, what I'm trying to say here is, no one has it altogether. And if you're at a phase in life where you thought would be more organized or put-together, or if you thought you would have accomplished more by now, you can just relax. You can rest in Christ. The Lord has a better plan for you and it will make your heart whole. It will exceed all of your expectations in a wonderful way.

What about you?

How do you unplug from the craziness of life? How has your 2018 been?
