Unbound Stories: Meet Sarah

By | May 4th, 2017|Categories: Unbound Stories|Comments Off on Unbound Stories: Meet Sarah

Meet Sarah At fifteen, I already knew my life purpose: to paint, draw, and beautify the world as a professional artist.  The obviousness of this was...relieving.  I wasn’t going to end up like those “other people” panicking their way through college and into their early twenties with no idea of where to go.  I had a yellow brick road to follow with nothing holding me back.  Nothing. Flash forward a year, and I’m sixteen, on my bedroom floor, crying.  My drawing hand is wrapped in a brace.  The Velcro crackles as I rub it. [...]

Finding Contentment in Struggle

Hope in the Ruts

Here on the blog, we’ve been talking a lot lately about this incredible group of people we are part of in as Unbounders and the many incredible experiences that come out of this community.  But there is another side to being Unbound -- to life, actually -- that is not as glamorous, exciting, or inspiring. Because the truth is, we don’t live life leaping from one mountaintop experience to the next. The big part of our lives is fighting gravity up the mountains, sliding down the back sides, and struggling through the valleys and ruts in between. It’s spring at last! [...]
