Hello! Chances are that if you've stumbled upon this page you'll be wanting to know a little bit about the person behind it, right? So here's a little introduction post just to tell you a little about myself so you can get to know me a little better before I begin to share my heart with you.

First things first, My name is Alice and I am currently 18 years old and living in Belfast in Northern Ireland and I'm a Belfast girl born and bred. As I begin to enter a new chapter of my life I decided to start up this blog just to document the things I experience and share my experiences with others who may be interested in hearing my insights. I don't know what the future holds for me and lately I've been struggling to come to terms with the fact that God's plan for my life will not always be in line with mine and I have established that I needed to lay my future into God's hands because he has every day of my life written out from before I even had any idea of what I want to do and although it's hard to let go of your dreams and wholly trust in what God's plan for you is it brings an immense sense of peace and comfort from knowing that God's got you covered and that even if it may not seem like the best thing for you at the time, everything works together for good so you can rest assured that in the end everything will work out perfectly.

"And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose" - Romans 8:28

 Whatever direction that God points your life in I hope that you can use the worst of your circumstances to form some of the most beautiful memories because more often than not they are born from the ashes of what seems like an irretrievable low point but it's really just a platform that you've been placed on to elevate you to greater things so just remember to always be thankful for the little things in life because as meaningless as they may seem they all create a bigger picture which proves that we have so much to be thankful for.

I'm going to leave you with my favourite song lyric which is also the motto of my life and causes me to appreciate every aspect of my life and enjoy each and every moment because each second that we breathe is a small part of our ridiculously exciting story and I can't wait to find out where mine goes next. "più bello della vita non c'è niente" which translates to English as "there is nothing more beautiful than life" so embrace the life that you've been given and revel in it's beauty.
