How has my week been? I’ve been in bed half passed out from Nyquil thinking about how much work I have to do but it’s all good now! I hope that no one has managed to go through as many boxes of Kleenex as I have and that it’s all been sunshine and productivity for y’all! This week I’m focusing on some of my freshman Year worries and it’s a little extension from last week’s blog post.
Often times this year I’ve stressed myself out about my future and where I’ll end up. I think it’s a college student thing but also a Faith thing where I stress myself out and constantly worry about where I’m headed. Will I end up as successful as I’d love to be? Will I land that dream job? Will I start my own business? Will I move to a different state? Will I end up married? Will I end up on top? I feel like we all ask ourselves these questions but the difference is to what extent we do it. I have to constantly remind myself that everything works itself out in the end as long as we keep trying to achieve our short term goals. Worrying honestly takes up too much of my energy and I’m still training myself to see what I have in front of me instead of worrying too much about what’s coming in ten years. I think we should all just focus on what’s in front of us and live in the moment because every second is damn precious!
I feel like the worst question anyone can ask is ‘What is everyone around me doing?’ and I think its the worst because comparison is my worst enemy and I catch myself comparing myself to the people around me all the time. It’s an enemy of progress and I have to remind myself that we’re all on different journeys and we can’t all be the same. I’m slowly learning how to appreciate what I have and who I am and I have to thank Freshman year of college for that!
I appreciate you tuning in! Please come back next week for new content.
