If you ever find yourself stuck in the middle of the sea,
I’ll sail the world to find you
If you ever find yourself lost in the dark and you can’t see,
I’ll be the light to guide you ~ Bruno Mars
Hey there, I’m Gracie and I’m 14. This is my blog, A Light In The Darkness.
If I’m not at sea, I’ll be dreaming of sailboats, practicing with my charts, talking to my friends, writing a spoken word poem, taking a spontaneous dip in the ocean or swimming lengths of the nearest pool. I’m a wild child with my head in the clouds, a love of water and words and a desire to work in sail training to make a difference and help young people of my generation.
I guess I am just an ordinary girl, with big dreams and hopes for my life. All my childhood, my parents have tried to teach me and my siblings to help others when we can, to challenge the way our modern society works, to make a difference, to be ourselves and to be honest. Through the life we live, we hope to practice all these things.
My lifestyle is definitely not normal, I travel a lot, in boats, vans, cars and numerous other vehicles. My family and I try to go with our circumstances. I don’t belong to a certain religion, but I have faith in something bigger than me to guide me and help me. This way of life isn’t perfect, in fact, I struggle with it often.
This blog is me trying to be ‘a light in the darkness’. I chose to call my blog that because often my Dad would tell me stories about the people who have shaped our world and how they are like lights guiding the people in the darkness to light and safety, just like a lighthouse.
All in all, expect a heartfelt, honest and maybe a little sarcastic approach to the world and its people, problems and plans, all from the perspective of a determined and passionate girl trying to make a difference and achieve her dreams.
Please do leave me a comment and introduce yourself. I love to make new friends with other members of this diverse and inspiring community of bloggers.
So, I hope you enjoy my blog and are guided by my light.
