Hey guys! Welcome back. Throughout life we experience our ups and downs. It’s not always great, but it’s not always terrible either. Sometimes it is the hard times that motivate us to get to the good times. Life’s not always easy, but at the end of the day it is always worth living because you never know when you won’t be able to enjoy it anymore. It’s about more than just surviving. It’s about thriving.

I am about to start my final year of college as an undergraduate. That’s hard to say. But it has been a process. It hasn’t always been easy, but I have learned so much about myself and about life while going through college. I am forever thankful that God gave me all of the opportunities He did. Sometimes I don’t deserve them, but I am so grateful. I have faced many difficult challenges through these last four years, but I have grown so much because of them. Sometimes I crash and burn, but it’s worth it when I get back up. I can’t count how many times I felt like I was failing only to discover that I was just becoming stronger and smarter. My life makes so much more sense now that I have discovered my purpose and I never would have done that had I lived this chapter of my life differently. I know that in the next year I will grow even more and I am excited to see where it takes me and the person I become.

Going to college is really scary when you don’t know how to make friends. It took me a while to find friends that I was comfortable with and who accepted me. But once I did, my confidence grew so much. I am thankful that I found people who genuinely care and want to see me succeed. It’s something that I have missed out on my entire life. Even after discovering what I wanted to do, people doubted me. People still doubt me. But I am extremely lucky that college provided me with a support system. That is something I will never take for granted.

I struggled so much with what I wanted to do with my life after college. I had some ideas, but none of them seemed to stick. It took me a really long time to figure it out. But once I did it made so much sense. I had to go through all of that to get where I am, and I can appreciate it more now because I know that this is it for me. I found my calling and I found my purpose. Nothing and no one can take that away from me. It’s been a beautiful and rocky journey so far and I would not have it any other way. Because no matter what, high or low, it’s my journey and I intend to give it all I have. My life is my own and I have learned to love whatever comes my way because it is mine.

Because I believe in myself, things work out. Maybe not in the ways I anticipated, but they do. I never knew I would be in half of the situations I have been in, but I am supremely grateful. For a long time I wasn’t really able to live my life. Now that I am able I want to take full advantage of it.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did. Don’t forget to follow before you leave if you have not already and I hope to see you next time!
