this time around

I've tried the blogging thing a time or two (or three or four) before and always pitter out. I give up. I expect too much from myself and the blog. I try to have it be "themed", post so many times a week/month, gather followers, etc. When I don't meet the goals and expectations I've set for myself, I get upset and quit.
So this time around, I'm not going to set goals and expectations (okay, I'm going to TRY not to), but rather hold onto hope and faith. I want this to be a growing/learning experience for myself- a place where I can come and write and not worry about anything else.
I'll leave you with a video from Mumford and Sons. It's for their song "The Cave". It's where I drew inspiration for my blog title. Take what you may from the song...but I feel like it's about a man struggling with life and purpose and choosing to seek the truth and rely on God-thus finding freedom. It gives me strength.
