Sometimes when I go blogging, I get lonely. I read and see the things that people are doing and thinking and I wish I got to interact with them. It's kind of like window-shopping for what you want out of your own life.

I like my life most of the time, but sometimes I can't help feeling like I'm on the outside looking in at everyone else. Does everyone feel this way, I wonder, or is it just me?

I feel this way all the time. :-P I keep reminding myself that I *will* get well and I *will* get to do things and write about things like a normal person. Just not right now.

I think it’s everyone – human curiosity at best, and envy for what we don’t have at worst. I think Heidi is onto something with the trusting God that everything is for a season thing. I often peruse friends’ blogs and wonder what it would be like to be a wife and mother instead of doing the go-go-go career thing - it seems impossibly far away, so different than anything I know right now. Yet many of those same people wonder the same thing about being single and working. For me, it’s a matter of learning to trust the author and perfecter of our faith, who knows what I need in each season far better than I do.

Marian showed me the blog of a woman who ditched her life, road across the entire US on a scooter and then settled in Wyoming, where she is now writing and taking pictures of an orphaned coyote that lives in her house.

How awesome would that be?
