After college life has not been what I expected it to be. One thing I have learned and continue to learn is that things are never what you think they will be; they are never how you actually picture it to be before hand. After college life looked so exciting and promising when I was racing to the end. And when I was in High School, the after college looked even more different than it did when I was facing it. It has not been the free ride, do whatever you want to do, exciting journey that I thought it would be. It has been hard work, yes sometimes lonely, frustrating, confusing... and yet it has still been wonderful.
I think that the hard, lonely, frustrating, & confusing times are the best times to grow in your identity, in your future, and to grow with God. And all of those things really describe a lot about this season of my life. Growth. And as far as growing into your future, that couldn't be more true. I think it is always easier to encourage others than it is to encourage ourselves, but truly if we expect to have an incredible future it isn't going to fit us now, we are going to have to do some growing in order to have a perfect fit.
Today I am linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday.
