Embrace the Milestones

One more semester. How scary is that?! Throughout my life I have  always been so eager and excited to start the next chapter of my life. I love milestones because they aren’t just a way of documenting where a person is in their life, but they also give you something to look forward to. I was so excited to turn 16 and get  a car and my license, I couldn’t wait to graduate high school and start college, and turning 21 was exciting for so many reasons! I am nearly always looking forward to the next big thing in my life...but things are different this time. 


Here I am entering my last semester of college and I have found  myself anxious, scared, and sad at times, which got me thinking. Why am I so scared? I have the entire world at my fingertips! I was listening to the podcast called Manifest by Tori DeSimone and she said something that really resonated with me. In the episode  titled 2020, Let’s Do This she said,“My universe has brought me to exactly where I am right here. I was born the exact time that I was born of the timeline of this universe so that when I’m 21 years old and I’m on the cusp of like the greatest things to come  that it’s at the start of a new decade with all of this motivation and drive and determination.” This put things into perspective for me and reminded me that I am so lucky that God placed me in this world and that there is a purpose for my life. Okay, so I’m not sure where my next steps will be, but


I don’t have to know! I have spent the last 4 years learning through my classes and my experiences that I am confident I will end up right where I am supposed to be after graduation. 

My next big milestone is graduation, but instead of freaking  out like I have been, I am deciding right now to relax and let God take me where I am supposed to go...I challenge you to do the same.
