A week away.

My name is Merideth and I enjoy positivity, actually I more than enjoy it I LOVE it! Positivity is an amazing thing you see with positivity you can do ANYTHING. I think one of the hardest things in the work is keeping positive, and that goes for anyone. You see I leave for camp in 6 days precisely and let me just tell you I am beyond excited. Last year I set off for my first ever summer camp to Timber Wolf Lake with YoungLife through my school. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to fully experience what is described as “the best week of your life” because I was too sick and ended up having to leave early. HOWEVER friends let me just tell you that in 6 days I will be stepping foot on that bus for the 7 hour drive to the tippy top of Michigan for what will indeed be the best week of my life. I will step foot on that bus my friend with a body full of positivity. I will wake up each morning with the mind set that I CAN and WILL do everything to fully experience this week that I was unable to last year. I cannot tell you how excited I am to shut out the outside world and to just focus on what matters in life. I am so excited for my faith to be strengthened and my body to feel healthy knowing that I will be the strongest I can be there! There’s something so awakening when you are shut out from the outside world and surrounded by people that have also decided to spend their week up at the beautiful camp as well. With that being said I ask that you pray for me and everyone else at the camp that our bodies and minds will be the healthiest they can be! I ask that you keep me in your thoughts as this will not be an easy thing for me but I am so determined more than ever to take as much away from this week as I can and to really truly understand who I am as a person and as a christian. I never really talk about my faith on this blog as I believe faith and spirituality is so individual to each and everyone of us on this earth. Being sick can either completely strengthen your faith or weaken it and I’ve definitely had a hard time understanding just what my life is being used to do. I believe I was put here for a reason and I can’t wait for this week to show me even more just how much I really was created for a reason. As I said I will be completely cut off from all social interaction with the outside world so if you don’t hear from me before July 8th I wish you all a wonderful next 2 weeks and can’t wait to share my journey with you when I return! (:
