“A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.” -George Bernard Shaw
Good morning world!
It amazes me how fast this semester has passed. I remember walking on campus this past August in the blistering heat feeling all kinds of anxious, worried, and excited for this school year. Anxious because I knew the challenge of taking on such a heavy workload, worried because I doubted that I could complete all of this work successfully, and excited that I was coming closer to my dream of achieving a Bachelor’s degree.
After this semester I only have two more semester’s left to complete. At first it worried me that I would need an extra semester. I kept thinking how would that pan out? would I be considered successful in my future employers eyes? would they think of me as being lazy or just too stupid to finish early? And what would I tell my friends?
I was also excited to go to graduate school In August. I still am excited, but it also has me thinking, should I try to pursue my profession first? But every time I think about being like everyone else and after college fight and scratch for a position as an intern it leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.
What I’ve come to realize is that you can’t think or care what people think. You have to do what is best for you no matter if you gain or lose friends in the process. I also made the mistake in the middle of the year of thinking that I could figure all this out on my own. I am able to be here, sitting at this table, looking out of my window, and peacefully drink my Tazo tea because of God. I wouldn’t have been able to have this experience without him, and I thank him daily because of it.
I hope, as you wind down from this hectic schedule of buying the right gift your loved ones will enjoy I hope you take the time to realize what you do have and be thankful for it.
