One Post to Rule Them All:
I’ve been engulfed by a busy set of transitions these past couple of days and I haven’t had time to write much. The past week has been filled with a variety of changes; finishing my junior year, saying goodbye to friends who are graduating, and starting a new job. I have found myself bombarded with a ton of change all at once, and I, like most people, am hesitant to life changing. Needless to say, this change hasn’t been easy for me.
Losing my support system at school has put a lot of stress on my emotional sanity. I’m currently creating new routines for myself in order to stay busy. The process is tough, but like all things in life, the journey is worth the destination.
On to the end of college: Saying goodbye to friends who are graduating is one of the toughest things to do. It enforces the sad truth that people are only in our lives for seasons. I have reflected on this and challenged myself to rethink my relationships with my peers. Every minute spent with people, especially the ones that we care about most, should be spent without stress or worry. I want to create stronger relationships with people; relationships that go beyond the small talk that everyone is so quick to jump to. I never want to take the time spent with others for granted.
My prayers and best wishes go out to all of those who are graduating college and starting the next chapter in their lives. Never forget that the only person who you can control in life is yourself.
On a different note, while I was driving to work this morning, I had to take time and remind myself that life is too short to become stressed over every little thing. I found myself praying to God and asking Him for the strength to press forward without the friends that I had at college. I asked Him to grant me guidance and discipline in order to handle my busy summer. I assured myself that the money will come, the time will come, and the results will come as long as I put in the work and give Him the glory.
Here’s to that prayer.
