“But ye are a chosen generation, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light” -1 Peter 2:9
What’s up, Peculiars?
Hello and welcome to We, the Peculiars. My name is Brittany and I’m so grateful that you clicked into “OUR” space. Yes, you read that right, “ours,” yours and mine, but I’ll get into that a little later…
I grew up on songs like This Little Light of Mine. The problem with that was for years I didn’t know how to let it shine. Initially, this blog began as a means to figure it out.
All my life I knew I was creative but never knew how to properly express it. I wore my creativity as a badge of honor, until it began to stifle me. I would have these great ideas and then get paralyzed by fear so my creative nature lied dormant, rarely making appearances, until now. This site gives me the opportunity to uncover all of my passions and more. Although, this started as personal self discovery, it’s developed and now it’s about your discovery as well.
I’m realizing that so many of us are at a point in our lives where we are too old to be irresponsible but too young to let our dreams die. Brian Littrell said, “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” That’s not bad odds if you ask me, especially because you don’t have to do this alone.
I understand far too well, how scary it is to leave “stability” for uncertainty or even if your desire isn’t to leave, just starting something new can be overwhelming. Sometimes you have to do it afraid and that’s what makes us peculiar, where others would give up and retreat to their comfort zones, we press on! You’ve likely realized that you were chosen for this, something deep within bears witness and you know you’ll never be fulfilled unless you go after it. So why not go on this journey with friends? Please follow my blog and we’ll be *road trip buddies for life!
*See what I did there? Road trip (journey with friends) for life (in favor of the life we deserve) 😀 The cornball in me couldn’t help it.
