Hello, my name is Heather Lupu. Growing up, I was a small child with an old soul in southeastern Michigan. I like to think I am now a grown adult with a child’s soul (still basically in midwest Michigan). Others describe me as bubbly, out-going and talkative; but I feel I express myself better through written words. These words don’t come easily – I can’t write whenever I want. Instead, I have moments that God presses something important on my heart – and this blog is where I share these thoughts. If you are taking time out of your day to read my thoughts, I hope they serve as a vehicle for the Holy Spirit to reach you.
I graduated from Siena Heights University with a BA in English. Since then, I’ve gone from selling high precision balls (yup – you read that right) to marketing glass (you read that right too). However, I waved goodbye to all of that when my husband and I welcomed our first child, Joshua Henry, into this world. I’m enjoying the adventures that being a full time mom brings – and I’m learning how crucial a role God plays in developing another human life.
I think quotes are an easy way to vicariously live through another’s words – and in this case I am choosing words from Oscar Wilde:
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
So, in an attempt to live and not exist, I have created a bucket list for my 30’s.
Below, I have listed my goals for the next ten years – this will continue to change and grow, as well as contain deeply personal challenges and fairly humorous ones.
- Get baptized (did this September 1, 2013 in the presence of those I love)
- Overcome my food addiction.
- Reach my goal weight of 170 lbs.
- Learn how to pray.
- Visit another country (Canada doesn’t count).
- Adopt a dog.
- Read 100 books (sounds like a small amount, but I rarely have time these days).
- Slow down (i.e. eat slower, drive slower – overall slow my life’s pace down and enjoy it).
- Whale watch in Alaska.
- Run (let’s be honest, probably slowly jog) a 10k.
